Let’s Make a May Basket!

It’s almost May Day…May 1st marks this fun holiday and ever since I was a little boy, I’ve observed May Day! 

Tradition dictates that you create May Baskets…Many kids made them with candy, but I always made them with flowers or plants from the garden. The concept was to make a May Basket for a friend (or even a potential boyfriend or girlfriend)…then you would sneak up and deliver the May Basket to their porch, ring the bell or knock and RUN! The idea was to get away…If you were caught dropping off the May Basket, the recipient could give you a kiss. I share my history about May Basket day in this video! 

We’ll make this wonderful flower filled May Basket using both the Midnight Foam® from Oasis and the “Bright Side” J’s Bouquet from Sunshine Bouquet. These bouquets are available at Albertsons Companies stores Nationwide! I also use some foliage from the garden…It’s a simple trick for filling a basket with beautiful blooms. Enjoy!
