Happy May Day!

    Posted by  ·  May 1, 2007

    My favorite holiday is May Day. I love the sweet unexpectedness of goodies. Usually May Day is a very elaborate affair around here. This year we have too many projects with our house and too much going on to give May Day it’s usual attention. To make matters worse Kansas experienced a very late frost and most of the flowers are gone. So we borrowed a fabulous idea from our friend Jenni.

    We used plain brown drink holders from McDonald’s (Sonic has them too).


    A little paint.

    These could also be decorated with rubber stamps, stickers, crayons, markers, collage items, etc……….


    We filled them with  garden flowers,  candy hot glued to floral picks and a tag.


    We are ready to “ding” and “dash”—– My boys favorite part!

      Wouldn't you know we would be out of town for this, one of my favorite events! Darling baskets! I just love them!! The hardest part is asking the guy at the drive-thru for 10 empty drink holders -- believe me!! --- it was WELL worth it though! Fabulous!

      We used to celebrate May Day when I was a kid by taking homemade May baskets around to all the neighbors. I had intended to start this tradition with my own son this year but lost track of time. Hopefully next year!

      Thanks for renewing my appreciation for this tradition!
