The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and people are ready to enjoy the outdoors! So what better way to entertain all of your friends than with a spring or Easter social.
Here are just a few of the ways that you can make your spring social an event to remember.
Tip #1 Plan out Your Menu
A good rule of thumb is to match the menu to the mood you want to convey, so if you want to keep the party light, then prepare a menu of delicious finger foods and tea sandwiches.
These tasty treats will have your guests coming back for more while keeping them free to wander around and socialize.
Tip #2 Embrace the Outdoors
Whether it’s bouquets made at home or planters from a trip to the florist, your party is all about the flourishing spring and you should embrace it!
Small vases at each table will do the trick and provide a nice scent, but don’t be afraid to surround your party site with hanging planters or larger pots.
Tip #3 Make Your Table a Site to See
Table plants will definitely make your tables more seasonal, but don’t hesitate to wow your guests with your decorating skills.
Your guests will be spending time at their tables, so make sure the settings are pleasing to the eye by including plating and cutlery with floral patterns, cloth napkins, and fresh-smelling candles.
Tip #4 Prepare Your Playlist
There’s nothing worse for a party than a group of people standing around awkwardly in a silent room, so avoid that by creating and curating a playlist to get the party going!
Just like with food, music should be picked for the mood. If you’re hoping to create a casual and relaxing environment, then classical or bossa nova would be a great choice.
Tip #5 Location, Location, Location
Before you start planning your food and table settings, you need to find a party location that will accommodate your group.
Having your social in your backyard can create a cozy environment, but choosing a venue with stunning interiors and experienced staff will leave a great impression and take a lot of the party planning stress off of you!
