Add a pretty and super-simple touch to your confetti
baskets with luxe ribbons and clever arranging.
Fold a length of ribbon in half, then open it out so both sides
lie flat – this should form a point. Stick the triangular point to
the rim of the basket. Repeat using two different coloured ribbons
for contrast. Tightly tie a thinner ribbon just underneath the rim
before pushing it up so it’s just visible. Clip fabric flowers to
the sides and fill with confetti.
