Creating a welcoming and uplifting atmosphere is key for an event to remember. There are many tricks you can utilize right now to impress your guests, from choosing a beautiful venue to creating enticing menus.
Making your guests feel comfortable should be your priority. They should be in awe of your seamless planning and interesting venue.
The following tips will help you create an unforgettable Springtime celebration. The best part is that you can refer back to this article whenever you need to plan something amazing!
Pick the Perfect Venue
Your venue should be interesting yet still hold your guests comfortably. It is important to consider all the things, including your aesthetic, the needs of your guests, budget, etc. Picking the perfect venue should be one of the first things you do to prepare for your spring party. The location should fit your budget and your guests’. In other words, the venue shouldn’t be drastically far from your or the attendee’s homes.
Of course, everyone has a unique vision for their spring celebration. Picking a venue that fits your personal aesthetic relates to this! Think about what you want the lighting, atmosphere, and vibe to be throughout your guest’s stay.
Make Your Guest List
You can’t have a party without plenty of people! Formulate a guest list that includes acquaintances, friends, business associates, etc. People you know and get along with will likely want to attend your spring bash, so let them know quickly!
When sending your guest list, remember that your possible attendees will need enough time to respond. Everyone has their own life and they may need more time to decide. I recommend sending out your invitations 2-3 weeks before your celebration begins. This also gives you time to prep everything accordingly.
Decorate Your Space
Decorations are major. Finding pieces that are on-theme is crucial to enticing your guests and creating a cohesive space. Some interesting Spring-themed decorations are:
- Spring bouquet centerpieces
- Flower arches
- Balloon bunches
In short, find things that make your heart skip a beat, and will make your guests’ skip too! As mentioned, decorations may also have a color theme to tie your entire gathering together.
A color palette will make your event look more put-together and well thought out. If you are turning your spring celebration into a charity event, consider including a place for your guests to hand in donations of money or goods.
Plan a Festive Menu
What’s a party without good food? Scour the internet for delicious recipes to fill your menu with. If you are planning on hosting a more formal event, consider splitting your menu into courses. This works best if you are hosting a large number of people and will have them visiting for an extended period of time.
Because this is a spring party, why not throw in some egg-based dishes? Go simple with some deviled eggs, or show off your culinary skills with custard tarts.
Be sure to consider your guest’s dietary restrictions when planning your spring feast. Hiring a catering company you trust can make the dinner-planning process simple and stress-free.
Don’t Forget About Dessert
Don’t restrict your menu to just lunch and dinner dishes! Everybody likes a delicious dessert, and spring is the perfect time to give your guests a stunning themed treat.
If you’re planning on doing the baking yourself, think pastel colors and spring-themed shapes. Some fun examples include:
- Cupcakes with pastel-colored frosting
- Hot cross buns
- Chocolate-covered almonds
Desserts are a great way to bring some extra excitement to your party after dinner has been served. If you choose to work with a caterer, they can help you choose the perfect dessert for your spring celebration.
Organize Your Entertainment
Planning some fun, engaging activities for your guests is an essential part of throwing the perfect spring celebration.
The quintessential spring activity is an egg hunt; a great way to spend time with your guests, especially if some of them have children. You can hide colorful, dyed eggs for children to find, or opt for the plastic variety that can be filled with treats for an added layer of fun.
If you’ll be entertaining a more adult crowd, there are several activities you can set up to keep everyone engaged. Some fun adult spring games include:
- Baking exchange
Send Your Guests Home With a Keepsake
One of the best parts of attending a get-together is going home with a keepsake that reminds them of their closest friends and family. Giving your guests this same opportunity is an easy way to take your party to the next level.
Some easy ways to send guests home with a keepsake include:
- Setting up a photobooth
- Taking Polaroid photos
- Group crafting
With a personalized keepsake, your guests will remember your spring celebration for years to come.
