Every been in a restaurant when it turns "Happy Hour?" You notice the mood instantly changes as everyone is ready for fun. Whenever I'm having a Bad Hair Day, my cure is always a personal Happy Hour. Of course, I'm hopeless addicted to interiors; so for me, this hour is all about decorating.
In this new series, we'll look at some quick and happy mood changers for our very own Happy Hour. Each should take about an hour - a mere 60 minutes - to perk up our minds and our rooms. Let's get the party started.
For this Happy Hour, how about bringing back May Day? I love the idea of May 1st being a day of celebration. In the 1950's, my Mom would make little flower bouquets that my brother and I would deliver to our Portland neighbors. We'd hang the flowers on the door, knock as loud as we could and then run fast. "Happy May Day" was meant to be a surprise. This year, why not bring back this sweet tradition? Here's some easy ways to spread some May Day cheer.
My go-to is a 4" pot of primroses, wrapped in colorful tissue and ribbons.
A paper cone hung on a door is a colorful surprise.
A small tin can makes a perfect vase.
