We’ve crafted a delicious, Strawberry Lemonade May Day basket that is sure to effortlessly impress all your family and friends.
What are May Day Baskets?
May Day baskets are small containers that you fill with flowers, treats, or gifts. There are really no rules to putting together a May Day basket. You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you want. Traditionally, you then leave it on a neighbor’s porch, ring the bell, and run back to your house. Though some people prefer to hand deliver the baskets instead. Whatever way you celebrate, it’s a fun springtime tradition that the whole family, or even the whole neighborhood, can enjoy.
