May Day

121 :: 365

We made May Day cones and delivered them to some friends today. We used Martha Stewart’s directions. We made ours with six inch squares of printed vellum which held up very well. Instead of filling them with bouquets we bought a couple of 4-cell packs of sweet alyssum from the garden store and cut the cells apart, putting a cell in each cone. That way the flowers wouldn’t wilt by the time our friends found them on their doors. The last thing we did was print Happy May Day on a slip of paper and tape it like a flag to a toothpick. Then we pushed the toothpick into the soil. Happy May Day!
