May Day

 

May Day is today! I believe this fun holiday is not celebrated by all but it should be! What a wonderful day… a day I dedicate to flowers. I thought, “what a better way to ring in the holiday than to post all of my favorite flowers?” As I curated this list I realized that all of these flowers make dynamic bouquets all by there lonesome. I am drawn to anything that is intricate in its own simplicity.

My grandmother is the one who has instilled my love of May Day. She would help me compile a basket of handmade paper flowers to leave on my own home’s front porch for my mother. Here is a checklist for your May Day…

Please enjoy the inspiring floral photos below to spark your basket-making!
