I then arranged a tray of baklawa and two packs of Sohan halwa to fill up space.
Some of the mithai can be quite soft and/or syrapy so I placed the peices in cake cases before arranging them in the basket.
I filled a second basket with fruit (I tried to use firmer fruit so that it lasted longer - I also added grapes on top after I took this picture).
I placed some stars (the type you stick on presents) in the basket and got my sisters to help me wrap the whole thing in cellophane and tie a bow with ribbon that matched the tissue paper (yelling at each other the whole time - "Duh!! why are you putting the cellotape there?"). I finished off with a label to personalise. I hope they like them.
