The tradition of spreading cheer to others by making and gifting May Baskets is a lovely way to celebrate this month! We purchase baskets, floral foam, and flower bunches. Then, by laying out the flowers sorted by both color and kind, we create an outdoor crafting station!
When our baskets are completed, we all choose a recipient. However, to try and create an element of randomness, we do not give the particular basket we created to the person of our choice. Rather, we draw names to determine which basket goes to whom. In this way, we avoid the mindset of creating an arrangement for a specific person.
In the end, the baskets look lovely, and the giving feels wonderful!
