I’m sure you’ve noticed in recent posts that I’ve been OVER THE TOP about flowers and spring. I just can’t help it. And you can expect more… like today! As April starts to wind down (already!), it’s time to start thinking about May Day and Mother’s Day! Now, I know May Day is traditionally more for “kids”, but as I was looking at gorgeous May Day bouquets, I realized what great inspiration they would be for a spring bridal or baby shower… or a Mother’s Day tea. So, are you ready for more flowers?? (Even if you aren’t, here they come…)
First up, from A Bit of Sunshine, an absolutely lovely tutorial on making Fancy Felt Baskets for May Day. These would ALSO be good for centerpieces at a shower, or even gifts for party guests.
A very simple and shabby-chic-esque idea comes from Martha Stewart. Simple cans made into May Day baskets:
I just have to share one for the kids… I can’t help it. From Rage Against the Minivan, a great tutorial for making cone baskets… again, these could be embellished and made into lovely centerpiece bouquets!
And finally… one more “shabby chic” idea.. from Patina White. Peat pots turned into LOVELY baskets for May Day… or any day!
