We're partnering with Rosanna this week to bring you some fun ideas on spring and Easter Entertaining! You definitely need to stop on by and read their post on simple Spring Décor ideas plus a very yummy Coconut Crème pie recipe. You don’t want to miss this one!!!
Spring is just around the corner so let’s shake off the winter blues and bound into spring’s warm and friendly social schedule. Spring parties are for celebrating any number of occasions: Easter, birthdays, spring break, graduations and more. Spring is a time of renewal and optimism; so now that you’ve begun to thaw out and warm-up, invite your friends over for an intimate spring brunch.
Start with the invitation. Choose a colorful, personalized invite with a simple floral motif. One clever idea is to combine a favor and an invitation all in one, especially if it is an intimate affair. Purchase paper butterflies then print the party information on colorful tags and tie them onto the butterflies. Your guests will be so impressed when you drop them off (or send them).
Choose an easy menu that celebrates the bounty of the season’s produce, decorate your table with fresh blooms, and serve fizzy fruity cocktails.
Design a sophisticated and fresh look with a spring palette made-up of vibrant greens, brilliant whites and sunny yellows. Start by covering a table with a white tablecloth and bright placemats then add a rattan runner (a patterned, spring scarf can also double as a runner). Top the runner with colorful vases like these great and inexpensive Blumeboxes (like the ones pictured above) filled with spring blooms (like tulips or hyacinths). Little bouquets are easy and less intimidating to make. When you are choosing your flowers: stay seasonal, and don’t be afraid to mix your bouquet. Cinch napkins with our preppy grosgrain napkin rings.
If you are entertaining on a budget then go for a simple but charming grass centerpiece and place white tea lights in clear glass votives in the grass.
Paper lanterns are a simple way to make your party feel intimate yet very festive. Add colorful nylon butterflies to your paper lanterns and you will instantly give these lanterns a lift.
The key to a great party - for any season - is appropriate coordination. With so many spring party themes to choose from, it can be challenging to limit the party to one cohesive focal point, but with proper planning a spring party can bloom magnificently into a splendid occasion.
Keep decorations subtle and let Mother Nature do the rest with fresh flowers, bright green grass and crisp blue sky.
Coordinate activities with the party theme, including party games and appetizers.
