  1. Lora, such a clever way to make a basket for flowers. It turned out so pretty. Love your little note too. Personalizing any project makes it more personal. I remember celebrating May Day in elementary school. We would make a May Pole and dance around it. The radishes were a cute addition for more color.

      Thanks, Carol! I think it’s so fun to celebrate spring when we’ve waited so long for it!

  2. Lora, I LOVE your May Day basket! You have me inspired to make one of my own. Simply wonderful! Thank you for sharing it with us at the Thursday Favorite Things party! I’m featuring you this week! 🙂
    Have a wonderful weekend! xo

      Thanks for the feature, Theresa; I’m glad you liked it! I’ll definitely pop on over!

  3. This IS adorable, Lora! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It would be wonderful with some of your fresh rosemary;)

  4. I have heard of May Day but had no idea there was a tradition around the name too. I love this idea! The possibilities for hanging surprises on the neighbor’s doors are endless. Yours is so pretty and it taught me some things about floral arranging. Thanks for the inspiration! I can’t believe in all of my 60 years I had no idea this wonderful tradition even existed 🙁

      Got to make up for lost time, then, Marie;) It is a fun tradition for us beauty-lovers!

  5. This is so cute!! I love the container that you used! And, the radishes are such a creative, darling addition to your beautiful arrangement!!

    I just knew you would do something so unique and you did, radishes , it all looks so pretty.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marlene! I have to do something unique to get me excited;)

  7. I love what you created. I keep saying I’m going to make May Day baskets for my neighbors and now you have inspired me.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It’s so much fun, Carol! You totally should!

  8. I love May Day, Lora! What a great idea for a sweet May Day door basket!!! When my daughter went into Juniors in Girl Scouts, our leader Susanne had the girls make May Day baskets to put on friends’ doors to celebrate the day. It was a lot of fun and the girls learned a whole new tradition! Thanks for the idea and wasn’t this a fun Pinterest Challenge? Glad to be with you again on the tour. <3

    Happy spring to you,
    Barb 🙂

      I’m glad I sparked a good memory, Barbara:) Yes, I love being challenged with such creative, talented ladies!

  9. Well I certainly wish I lived on your block! One, we’d have so much fun together. Two, I’d get this adorable radish filled beauty and love it! Love your tutorials. Great job and thank you so much for joining in. Now I’m off to read about this May Day I’ve never heard of before!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad I introduced you to May Day, Cindy! There’s many who have never heard about it, and I think it’s worth bringing back!

    So sweet… love the dash of fresh items, too, Lora! Can’t wait to rejoin you all next month. (I actually had mine done… was just too sick to take the photos.) Pinned! (Be sure to link-up!)

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Such a bummer, Julie:( I’m so sorry you missed us! Luckily it comes around each month!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura!

  11. This is so pretty! Who wouldn’t want to get that? I would love to see this old tradition come back. Pinned.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Me, too, Vikki! Thanks for pinning!

  12. What a great idea. There are so many old traditions that I am convinced should be brought back to life and this is just one of them. Love the radishes in with the florals.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Me, too, Tara! Thanks!

  13. Lora, this is so pretty. Love the basket you made and how creative you are. Love working on the challenges and hops with you.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Terrie!

  14. This is really pretty. The radishes are such an unexpected fun pop of colour – made me smile 😃

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      They are such a pretty color, aren’t they, Sheila? They’re such a fun addition to flowers;)

  15. This is too cute. I love your radishes and those stunning branches bursting with new growth. Adorable.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Katie! I love snipping budded branches in the spring and bringing them indoors!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It was so easy, Christy. I’ve made cone-shaped ones in the past; this challenge was a good excuse to try something different.

  16. You are so clever to make your own basket! The whole design is so pretty and the radishes add a fun touch of whimsy. Reading about May Day reminded me of elementary school where we had a May Day celebration each year that included weaving long ribbon around the May pole.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad it sparked a fun memory, Paula! I’m just hoping others will be inspired to make their own May Day baskets to gift!
