Fresh Ideas for Spring Entertaining

Your invitations, your way.
Spring is right around the corner, and we can't wait to host outdoor gatherings with friends and family! From Easter celebrations to spring bridal showers and garden parties, here are a few fresh party ideas for your next spring fling. mason_jars_spring Image by BeachBlues on Heart Love Weddings via Lover.ly. 1. Throw a blooming brunch. Spring is all about the flowers, so take a cue from Mother Nature and throw a flower-themed brunch. Encourage guests to wear their best spring floral dresses (think about how cute those pictures would be!) and serve a rose or violet-flavored cocktail. And don't forget the favors! We suggest sending guests home with a small potted plant, a bouquet of fresh flowers wrapped in brown kraft paper or a seed packet so they can plant their own. 2. Host a "fresh flavor" fete. Get your friends in the mood for spring by planning a party that focuses on sips and sweets inspired by the season. To start, serve up cocktails with a seasonal flair. Have a mimosa bar stocked with fresh orange, citrus, or peach juices and garnish the drinks with fresh flowers. For the main course, consider serving up a seasonal fruit or vegetable (apricots, rhubarb, avocados, and mangos are just a few of our favorites) and an herb-encrusted fish or meat. For dessert, try whipping up a refreshing homemade ice cream (we love mint and lavender). flower_crown_couple Photo by Ever After Studios on Bride and Breakfast via Loverly. 3. Plan a DIY and dinner party. Serve up small bites and drinks while you and your friends craft the night away! Invite guests to create an on-trend project like floral crowns. Arrange your buffet with finger foods, a cocktail station, and seasonal decor. Then set up a table for the project and outfit it with all of your craft supplies. (Don't forget to print out the DIY instructions; you don't want to spend the whole evening explaining how to make the project.)
