May

Wishing every one a very happy first of May! A day to wish happiness to all.  The tradition is to bring a lovely little bouquet to your nearest and dearest. It’s one of our favourite French traditions.

We are also getting ready to celebrate Mother’s Day and the place of Mothers in our lives. Whilst our great baskets are not the only for woman, they do make up the largest part of our client base. A basket is just the most perfect accessory in every womens life. From our classic baskets, round and rectangle baskets  to the blings we have got you covered.

Every where in France in May is the mois du Muguet – the festival of the Lily of the Valley. It heralds the beginning of spring and is one of my favourite traditions in France – everyone gives you a bouquet of muguet as gift of good luck. We will be in France from mid June for a few weeks and and so look forward to getting back in touch with these charming traditions.
