When the first day of the month is a holiday, we welcome it with a dance and young men erect a tree as a sign of love for their sweethearts, it's already pretty clear: May really is something special! This month has always been a time for merriment, love, flowers and spring, plus it’s also very popular for weddings. There are lots of good reasons to love May, and we’ve summarised them for you here, along with some great ideas for fun and free time!
Few months are as dedicated to celebrating love as May. Spring is finally here and nature is in bloom, but that’s not all that’s happening, as our human senses are also coming out of hibernation. All over the world, people are falling in love and couples are saying “I do”. In many places, decorated maypoles are still erected on the 1st of May – in a tradition that harks back to the 16th century, when bachelors used to erect a young birch or spruce in front of the door or the window of their sweetheart.
But if you think that’s all going a bit too going too far, you can always surprise your sweetheart with breakfast in bed. Grab a CLASSIC tray and add an ELEA vacuum jug filled with aromatically hot coffee, some crunchy fruit salad in a VIENNA small bowl, and some freshly pressed orange juice in a cooling carafe. And don't forget the fresh croissants, bread rolls and jam!
May makes everything colourful – the same applies to the kitchen, plates and our taste buds. The first berries are gracing in our gardens again, while all sorts of asparagus (green or white) are also making a reappearance. May really is a treat.
The perfect dinner: a delicious strawberry and asparagus salad, served in an ACCENTA salad bowl with glass of cold white wine (tip: save yourself a trip to the fridge with the FLOW Slim bottle cooler). Finish with a helping of wonderfully moist rhubarb cake, which you can rustle up in a jiffy with the EMSA baking aids.
It's finally time for those firsts: time for that first ice cream, bike ride or boat trip, the first barbecue of the season – and, and, and... In other words: the world starts to get bigger again when May comes around and we all head for the great outdoors. The sun's already pretty powerful, so don't forget the sun cream and something to drink on that spontaneous trip to the park or the lake.
The MOBILITY vacuum flasks keep drinks pleasantly cool, or you can enjoy some ice tea or hot coffee to go in the ingenious TRAVEL MUG thermo mug. Snacks such as sliced fruit, vegetable sticks or nuts are incredibly easy to carry in the CLIP & GO snack box.
May is just around the corner – which means dancing, soaking up the atmosphere, having fun and being adventurous!
