Vintage French Wall Basket Filled with Fall Flowers

September 2, 2023

Today I'm sharing an awesome vintage French wall vase basket. I did the happy dance when I came across it at a local pop-up estate sale. Continue reading to find out what, exactly, is a vintage French wall vase basket, and what I did with it. It transformed my fall living room!

Okay -- so you don't often find these beauties out in the wild, which is why I was so excited to find it! Previously, I'd only seen one (from a brocante in France), for sale online. I've always been a lover of all things French and I've been trying to bring my decorating sense back to that vision. And this vintage French wall basket certainly helped with that!

I found it at a local pop-up estate sale for $10.00. And I knew right away how special it was.

I couldn't wait to get it home and fill it with faux fall floral picks.

I filled this vintage French wall basket with six different fall floral picks (listed below, with links to suggested similar items), then added a small, seasonal sign to make a statement:

2) fall colored eucalyptus picks (golden)

3) Beige faux hydrangea floral pick

5) Burgundy hydrangea picks

6) Pumpkin & berries pick

7) Small wooden seasonal sign with wood beads

Once I decided on the combination of floral picks I wanted to use, I got to work filling the French wall basket to its brim with a mix of those faux fall floral colors and textures.

I've been trying to get away from using only the more "traditional" fall colors in my fall decorating, and I think I hit the nail on the head with this floral arrangement.

While some of the penny leaf picks are a muted gold, and the mini pome bush picks are orange, the rest of the arrangement is much more subdued color-wise. The floral wall basket is the perfect addition to my DIY Vintage Shutter Turned French-Inspired Candle Sconce.

Oops, here's my supervisor, Riley, trying to get in on the action.

And here she is, exhausted, after "helping out" with the photo shoot!

Even after all that, I couldn't help but feel that something was missing. So I added a small wooden Dollar Tree fall-themed sign and my French basket wall hanging was complete.

The fall floral picks and vintage whitewashed wall basket fit in seamlessly with my French farmhouse living room decor.

I think the blue velvet pumpkin, front and center, really pulled it all together.

As did the wooden sign, for sure.

This colorful faux floral arrangement fills my French farmhouse living room with seasonal warmth. You may not find a vintage French wall basket any time soon, but you can certainly fill a thrift store basket with faux floral stems and recreate this classic fall vibe.


I recently found a similar basket online. It's not vintage, but it's beautiful! Check out this Hanging Willow Door Basket to see for yourself.

Well, that's it for today, friends!
