I'm going to do my part. I've come up with a little treat that even has a maypole!
What do you think? This was pretty darn easy to do (so I need to go make a few more to share) and it's quite festive. I simply twisted some ribbons together and stuffed them into the jumbo straw. Then I just added a flag and flower - both on toothpicks. I held it in the nutcup and poured in the M&Ms. The M&Ms are heavy enough that they hold it in place.
I love this sweet maypole image! It's by Mary Blair - she did a lot of fun stuff for Disney in the 50s and 60s. While we're talking about May Day, I've got a suggestion for you:
Visit my daughter, Lauren! Her blog is Lovely. You'll find out some interesting things about May Day and get a recipe for a very pretty May Day salad. Have you ever made anything with edible flowers? I'd like to try after seeing Lauren's post.

So, let me know if you celebrate May Day and what you do. And somebody find me a Maypole!! Happy May Day to you!
