On the small sandal with the wire sign holder I would glue it to the top edge of the basket so the size sits up high.  For the sign maybe you culd hang it behind the baskets.

I would hang the sign on the wall behind the baskets. You can use a Command Hook if necessary. I can’t tell if it has holes to hang a ribbon through or not. If not, I would drill a hole in each upper corner and hand from a ribbon.

For the card holder flipflop, I would glue the sole of the flipflop to the side of the basket and bend the wire up to hold a card which states the size of the flip flops in that basket.

If you attach the flip flop holder to a clear clip (or colored) it would be more sturdy. I think that will work well and look good too! I found a few pictures and a link for you:

For the sign, it all depends on where youre planning on putting those baskets (I LOVE the sign by the way, so cute!). If you are putting them on a table, it would be cute to have a table cloth and hang the sign off the edge of it in front, kinda like this:

 but you know, with a sign.

If they are going to be on the floor or something, just put it on the wall right behind it. If its not near a wall, you could always make a post very easily and hang the sign on that. You would only need to have a wide square piece with a 2×4 sticking out of it, or make a little “X” with 2×4’s and another straight up with a nail to attack it to!

(like this, but square bottom…or even a heart!)

Hope this helps! Good luck with everything and Congrats!

Maybe you could put the sign on a small tabletop easel so it will sit up like a painting.  Then just set the easel near the flip flops.  I know they sell them at Michael’s.  While at Michael’s ask what type of glue to use on your baskets.  They look like they are made of fabric in the pic.  You definately want something that works well with fabrics.

You don’t have to drill into the wall to use a Command Hook. They are made by 3M.

After you are done with them you just pull the tab and the hook comes off the wall without leaving any mark.

You can get them at any home store, Target or Walmart.
