Spring will soon grace us with its warm weather and beautiful flowers – I don’t care what Punxsutawney Phil has predicted this year! As events move outdoors, party planners take advantage of the abundance of colorful and cheerful decorations, appetizers, and centerpieces to throw truly remarkable events. Often times you know you want to throw a spectacular party for your friends and family but you just can’t figure out what do to! Because parties are what we love, we want to help you find a reason to host one! This month our event planners put their heads together to come up with innovative, fun, and entertaining reasons to have a spring party. There are just so many possibilities – whimsical tea parties, Easter egg-hunts, fresh cocktail recipes, and jaw-dropping floral designs. Below you will find some of our favorite ideas that are far from the normal party theme. We hope you enjoy!
Baseball Opening Day: The start of spring brings with it the start of baseball season! This All-American sport is the perfect way to bring family and friends together for a party. Have your event on your favorite team’s opening day so you can cheer them on. Decorate with banners, streamers, and table cloths in their colors and use baseball cards as coasters. If you don’t have a favorite team then go with a neutral red, white, and blue theme and ask your guests to come dressed to represent their team. Cracker jacks, peanuts, hotdogs, and soft pretzels are just some of the many ballpark-themed snacks you could serve up for your guests. Baseball decorated cake, cupcakes, and cookies are always fun dessert ideas and don’t forget refreshments like soda and juice for the kids and cold beers for the adults. Be sure to have the big game up on the TV and whiffle ball in the yard for the kids!
End of Tax Season: Who doesn’t love the end of tax season?! Mark the occasion with a relaxing get-together with friends and co-workers to wash away the stress. Simple finger foods can be a cost-effective way to provide your guests with a variety of options that won’t leave them feeling too stuffed. Refreshing fruit spritzers, light beer, and chilled rosé and white wine keep the drink options light. Classical, acoustic, and jazz music are all wonderful choices to play in the background to feed into the mood of the event. Tax themed Mad Libs, a good game of charades, and fake money confetti will have your guests laughing and enjoying the lighthearted get-together.
Spring Fever: If you are impatiently waiting for warmer weather, chances are your friends and family are too! Host a spring fever party to get everyone out of the house and in the mood. This party should be all about bright colors so encourage your guests to come dressed in their brightest and most colorful outfits. Serve drinks with fruits of every color and be sure to decorate with beautiful floral arrangements and contrasting linens. Play upbeat music and have fun group games at the ready to get your guests up and having a great time!
Earth Day: Celebrate Mother Earth and remind your guests how important our planet is with an Earth Day celebration. Recycle old jars and use them as drink glasses or flower vases, use newspapers as table cloths, and repurpose old magazines as hanging tassel decorations. Give your guests seedlings to plant in their home gardens and have the kids decorate bird houses and feeders. Provide your guests with healthy snacks such as carrot sticks and hummus, organic chips and spinach artichoke dip, fresh fruit cut in flower shapes, and a frozen yogurt dessert station. Make sure your plates, napkins, and flatware are all either made out of recycled material or are reusable. Show your partygoers how fun and easy it is to be green!
Whatever you decide, just remember that we can help you plan the perfect party and make it a stress-free event for you and your family. We look forward to celebrating with you!
