Happy May Day!!

Annapolis is a town heaped in tradition. One of our favorites is the celebration of May Day. Today, the Garden Club hosted their 55th Annual May Basket Competition.

First, you want to start with the basket. Try to find one that is unique.

Every May Basket is required to have cut flowers. Go with a nice variety in height, color and texture. However much you think your basket can hold, buy a little more then that.

Soaked Floral Foam is a great for getting perfect stem placement and keeping the flowers hydrated. Wilting on May 2nd is not cool!

Happy May Day!!

Be sure to take a stroll through town to check out this years best. Let us know which you think takes top basket!!
