May Day Flower Jar Contest

Wouldn't it be nice to treat someone special this May Day with a little surprise flower bouquet? Traditionally, May Day Flower baskets were left on the doorsteps of neighbors on May 1st. The jars are just an updated version of this sweet idea.We thought it would be fun to have a May Day Jar contest at Make Mine Pink.

Oh you have brought back some memories for me! When I was a child and living in Maine we made May Day baskets and actually went around the May Pole !

This is such a sweet idea.

Oh, I love your May Day flower hangers. When I was a little girl all of our neighbors used to hang tussie mussies from the door nob and surprise everyone for May Day. Such a lovely tradition.

what a beautiful floral arrangement(:)

I still do may baskets for my neighbors. I have moved a few times and still always do it for at least one neighbor. I am glad to see someone else keep up the tradition. I am inspired by your jars, and think I will try that this year too!
