Spring is here, and that means goodbye to the cold, winter weather and hello to sunny days and cool breezes! The comfortable climate makes it the perfect time to throw an outdoor party, celebrating not only new life, but also the friends and family we have made along the way. Keep reading for tips on how you can become the host with the most.

Give a Good Spread
The aesthetic of charcuterie boards has really skyrocketed in the last few years. They offer a simple and sophisticated way of serving your guests! We love the rustic look of a wooden cheese board. Opt for a large board, so you have plenty of space to arrange a delicious and eye-catching spread everyone will love

Make Sure Everyone Feels Comfortable
There’s nothing worse than feeling cramped at a party, so it’s important to make sure your guests are comfortable and relaxed. Take a look at this Plan 1 backyard from Cetara at Orchard Hills! These hanging lights bathe everyone in a warm, comfortable glow, while the long table gives everyone room to eat, drink, and socialize.

Movie Time!
Invite friends and family for a screening of your favorite flick(s), and theme-up your décor and snacks. Instead of gathering everyone inside to watch on your television, be a little unique and invest in a projector! It doesn’t take up too much space, but it has a big impact. Just lay out some spaces to lounge, pop some popcorn, and let the good times roll.

A Nice, Cozy Space
Give your friends a cozy area where you can just hang out. Check out this living room at the Plan 1 model of Camila in Placentia! It is perfect for a small, intimate gathering, whether you’re catching up, playing charades, or having a weekly board game night.

End the Night with Cake and Coffee!
End the night on a high note! Retire to the living room and serve the tried-and-true pairing of coffee and cake. Your guests will feel warm, full, and comfortable, and you’ll feel proud for throwing such an amazing party. In fact, as you say goodbye to your friends, you’ll probably already be thinking about your next soiree.
