Spring is Here, Let's Celebrate!
The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and it’s time to share this colorful and lovely season with your friends and family. Today, we’re helping you plan your party, and giving you some awesome tips on how to throw the perfect spring get-together. Keep reading for some fun and creative ideas!
Pick the Perfect Venue
The first step to throwing any party is figuring out where you’re going to host it. With lovely weather on the horizon, you can’t go wrong with an outdoor gathering. When you live in a Shea home, like Saffron in Yorba Linda, you can enjoy a backyard that has enough space for everyone on the guest list. Mingle, enjoy a delicious outdoor luncheon, and even play a game, like tag football or cornhole.
Become a Decorating Pro
No party is complete without seasonally-appropriate decorations. The first thing you should do is come up with a color scheme. We highly recommend using at least three complementary colors in pastel shades, such as purple, blue, and yellow. When you use a palette of pastel colors in your decorations—whether it’s for the tablecloths, flowers, or balloons—you embody the spirit of the season, and set a mood for your party that is as light and airy as a spring morning.
Create a Delicious Menu
When planning your menu, it’s important to consider what type of event you’re hosting. If it’s an intimate tea party, provide drink options for your guests, as well as a delectable array of small eats, such as cakes, sandwiches, and scones. However, if you’re expecting a lot of people, consider a simple menu featuring the best the season has to offer. From a refreshing strawberry salad with feta cheese to a cauliflower pizza topped with spring veggies, there are so many seasonally appropriate options that will surely delight your guests. Pro-Tip: Be sure to contact your friends and family and ask about allergies and dietary restrictions!
Provide Party Favors
Party favors are a great way to make sure your guests leave happy and eager to RSVP to your next invitation. Head to your local craft store and buy some small lace bags, perfect for holding all sorts of goodies. Fill them with potpourri, mini soaps, and even little plant kits, so everyone can continue to enjoy spring at home!
