You could always add ribbon around the basket or cover it with fabric and then add ribbon to go with your colors

I have the same fg basket. I've been playing around with adding a peony to the front and adding ribbon ... haven't quite figured it out yet.

hMm... do you want it to match with your wedding colors or with your FG's dress? you could go both ways? i would either put a pretty pink or gold ribbon around it and add a flower on there? Like how you did your birdcage? Or maybe find a red flower and add a pearl in the middle of the flower and attach those stringy pearls below it? I'm bad at describing.. sorry. lol

Hi! 


You could line the basket with gold or red tulle.  Allow it to pop out about 1/2" to see the gold or red color.  I would suggest red.  Add in the gold or cream petals.  Add a gold bow.  You could use the opposite color flower on one side as well.  Use something small as this basket isn't very big.  I think it would be nice.  I have been looking at this basket too for my son's wedding. 
Good Luck!
