Fruit Flowers: Watermelon with dried blueberry centers (attached with spaghetti – will soften by lunch)

Nuts: Almonds and walnuts

Basket of Flowers: Peanut butter sandwich, basket made with french bread dough, asparagus, plum tomato, radish with carrot and yellow pepper centers

    I love your May Day Bento! The little radish flowers look so sweet. Did you ever leave a flower basket on a door knob then ring the bell and run away on May Day? we grew up doing that to our neighbors!

  10. Beautiful bento. I love how you make everything in your bento! The basket is very clever. xx

    We made May Day baskets in school when I was a kid. My neighbors now (young girls) have given me paper May Day baskets in the past. I have a plan for tomorrow but not sure if it will happen. Thanks for sharing your experience. It is a fun holiday that not everyone knows about.

    Thank you Winnie! Your comment made me laugh. I am always thinking about what I can make into a bento next.

  13. Haha! I think it is amazing how you make your own pesto, bread, etc. For me that just takes the bento to a whole other level. 🙂 x
