I’m so very excited about this. Literally dancing around my front yard excited.
For the first time every, I did May Day, and it was every bit as great as it seems.
I am a spring kid. Back when I lived up North, I waited all winter for the moment when the first flower bloomed and we could all go outside again. Now, that I am in Florida, I can go outside all year, but I still love Spring.
May Day was sort of a bucket list activity, and then my mom sent me a care package that includes streamers and a note being like “Why don’t you have a May Day Party?”
One week later, I am at Home Depot buying a 10-foot pole so I can be all like…
Totally worth it.
The pole was actually pretty easy to set up. A created a wire ring at the top that I attached all the ribbons to the night before. Then, I happened to have a piece hollow bamboo on had that I stuck in the ground. I inserted the pole into that, added some dirt in the bamboo to make it a little more stable and then I was good to go.
I’m pretty in love with how it turned out.
And of course, because it is a brunch there was plenty of food. We had a quiche, potatoes, coconut creme pie, fruit waffles, sweet potato waffles, five cup fruit salad and a blueberry crumble. Plus champagne (side note: I really think day drinking is more fun than night drinking).

The whole thing was super fun. We each walked (danced) .3 miles around the pole before we got the streamers all wrapped up. We weaved in and out, and twirled. I’m sure the neighbors thought we were a little crazy and maybe pagans, but I think it is good to keep people guessing. I would rather be a little wild than small.
Plus, life is prettier with flower crowns and streamers.
