When I was a little girl I can remember celebrating May Day. My mom set up a May Pole with our tether ball game, and we took small May Day baskets of flowers to the neighbors. At the time, I thought she was crazy. But, it was fun none the less.
If you decide to make a purchase through my links, I will be paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional.
What is May Day?
May Day is a festival of Spring celebrated in many European countries. And, it has been celebrated since the second century.
More modern celebrations in Europe and North America include dancing around the May Pole, crowning a May Queen, and delivering baskets of sweets and flowers to neighbors.
May Day Baskets
I ordered the cutest little Easter Basket kits from Oriental Trading Company to use for our neighbor treats. They are the perfect size, and come with a little bit of paper grass for the baskets too!
I had some bottles of bubbles and sugar candy sticks at home from some other projects, so I’ll add those and other small candies to the basket. Then, I will gather some fresh flowers and add a tag to the baskets.
They are the perfect treat surprise your neighbors with this May Day!
Happy May Day
I created a fun little tag to add to our May Day gift baskets. You can find it in the shop here, just the code MAYDAY to download it FREE!
