The giving of May Day Baskets is a tradition that is apparently waning. A tradition that has just been introduced to us here at Peterboro Basket. How about we try to bring this wonderful tradition back to life and bring smile's to the faces of those dearest to you.
Historically on May Baskets children filled their baskets with flowers and left on a neighbours doorstep. The children then knocked at the door, ran and hid where they could see the delight on their neighbours faces as they found their surprise outside the door.
Nowadays baskets are filled with anything your heart desires. And heres just the basket to do it!
Staring with our refined 5/16" weave, this basket is handcrafted into its eye-catching shape: square at the bottom and oval at the top. We attach a level wooden base inside and outside and include felt dots on the bottom to protect any marring 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
