Happy May Day! (yesterday)

I love May Day! When I was young on the first of May at school we got to dance around the May Pole with ribbons in P.E. class and make a May basket. In the evening my mom would take me to someone's house to drop off the May Basket secretly. We always put fresh lilacs in it and some candy. We would ring the door bell and run away.


Most people have no idea what I am talking about! Anyway for a baby shower I am hosting this weekend I have made May baskets for the guests. I am going to put some candy, a lotion and a flower in the baskets. I don't think I can find lilacs so I'll just use a daisy or something. Here is a picture of the baskets. I used Daisy D's paper and a little ribbon. I made them small since we aren't putting a lot in them. I made 30 of them. Have a great May and see you soon!

  3. Very cool. I remember making May Day baskets in school out of milk cartons. They we would fill them with easter grass and candy and drop them off at houses. Just like you ring the doorbell and run away.
