Fun Ways To Celebrate May Day At Home This Year

Apr 28, 2016

Have you been swamped at'work lately? Need a break to loosen up? Your prayers had been heard long back, you just didn't know how to use it right! May Day is coming Grab this opportunity, and make a fun day out of work, wait for it AT HOME! Call your colleagues over and bring together different cultures, music (and even cakes) to celebrate the one holiday that every employee in the world relates to!

    1. May Pole in your backyard: Perfecting the balance between ambience and refreshment could do the trick of making your garden the party venue! Place the famous May Pole smack in the middle of your patio and there goes your stream of creativity. Colourful strings or ribbons for each person to grab, dance and swirl! To emphasize on the cultural aspect of this holiday, why not give different dance forms such as Tanz in den Mai or Morris Dancing a shot. For a Spring feel, DG recommends decorating the top of the pole with vibrant and exotic flowers such as frangipanis, peonies and carnations! If you're feeling extremely creative make beautiful wreath out of these flowers and allow them to cascade from treetops or outside walls. Ah! VIBGYOR won't be enough to cover the colour spectrum of your carnival.

  1. Crown For the May Queen: As part of this tradition, a lady is chosen as the May Queen who represents Flora Roman Goddess of Flower and Fruit. Garlands, tiaras, exotic throne one could kill to be the May Queen! There might not be gold involved, but you sure can give Her Majesty a regal look with elegant pastel rather than exotic getup!

  2. May Day Food & Drinks: No, we are not giving out cocktail and starter recipes. We're here to match your food with the venue! Confused? Blend the colour of your cocktails with shades you've used to decorate your courtyard. As for food, mixing some food colour once in a while will only make you look like a star! DG suggests decorating the yard in shades of pink, red and blue to keep the Margaritas, May Punches and Blue Lagoons coming for your parched throats.
