A gift of willow is suggested for the ninth anniversary. We have had several inquiries over the years for anniversary baskets. These have included a flower gathering basket, a small berry picker, a Celtic rope coil, a trivet, and a potluck basket. Somehow the potluck or casserole basket seems like an appropriate gesture for a relationship that is nine years in the making. Bringing a casserole to a potluck is all about family, friends, community, enjoying memories, and looking to the future. Although it wasn’t an anniversary gift, Katherine recently made this willow basket to fit a casserole dish. She has been weaving a similar basket, but this time she gave it a more rectangular shape to better fit a common casserole dish.
