Traditionally on May Day, children fill their baskets with flowers and leave the basket on a neighbor’s doorstep. The children then knock at the door, run, and hide where they can see the delight on their neighbor’s faces when they find the basket surprise. The giving of May Day Baskets is a wonderful tradition that will bring smile's to the faces of those dearest to you. Nowadays, May Day Baskets can be filled with any treat your heart desires.
The Peterboro May Day Basket is handcrafted with the refined 5/16" weave into its eye-catching shape: square at the bottom and oval at the top. A level wooden base is attached inside and outside and felt dots are attached to the bottom for protection of surfaces. A stationary smooth wood handle adds the finishing touch.
IDEAS FOR USAGE:
- Arrange with fresh-cut or silk flowers
- Drop in your favorite houseplant to hide its commonplace plastic pot
