I still remember sneaking over to our neighbors' houses on May Day, slipping a bouquet of posies over their door handle, ringing the bell and running away as quickly as possible. My sister and I would hide and try to peek as they opened their door to find the flowers awaiting them. It was so much fun to make a little spring gift for our neighbors, even though my mom probably did most of the work : )
The possibilities are endless for containers you could use for May Day bouquets. Mason jars, small gathering baskets, burlap, linen or paper cones all fit the bill.
I think I might need to make a little posy for our own door this year : )
Do you celebrate May Day? What did you gift your neighbors with this spring?
