There’s nothing like celebrating a special occasion and if you don’t have one, why not celebrate the season? Spring brings colorful flowers and fresh life to nature. If this wonderful season charms your senses, throw a spring lunch to really get into the spring mood. Even a birthday or anniversary in spring could be spiced up with a little bit of spring flavor.
A spring brunch, luncheon or tea is one of the best ways to celebrate this season. You can have your celebration outdoors or inside a house or an inn. But be sure to introduce the spring theme in your celebrations.
An outdoor spring luncheon requires very little in terms of decorations as nature has already taken care of most of the work. If the lunch is in your own garden or backyard, ensure a lovely ambience with some cleaning and trimming.
Let the environs reflect a host of colors against a bright green sheet of grass. Wicker chairs adorned with a ribbon add a lovely touch to this scenery.
To make up for any natural lack of color, add table cloths, napkins, table runners and centerpieces. Go with light shades of blue, green, pink and yellow and blend them in exotic patterns and combinations.
For a party indoors, fresh flowers from the garden or a florist ought to brighten up your house. Instead of just placing them in vases, sprinkle them around the room. Shower a coffee table with petals, place individual flowers next to each plate, make wreaths and garlands of spring blossoms for people to wear.
Decide on a dress code: the guests need to wear clothes that reflect the color of a flower. Or they can wear dresses with flower patterns.
Keep the menu simple and straightforward. Light appetizers, finger sandwiches, fruits, cheese, salads, soups, iced tea, and cakes for dessert sound good enough to put together a delicious fare.
Stress less and have fun at your spring luncheon!
