Spring is the season of new beginnings. The weather has finally started to warm up and all those negative feelings of winter have begun to melt away. You find yourself with a renewed sense of hope and must commemorate the turn of the seasons — with a fun springtime party! Here are a few ideas to help you and your loved ones celebrate the season to its fullest this year.
1. Spend Time in Your Garden
Your garden could make the perfect backdrop for any party. If you’re surrounded by greenery and blooms, you’re sure to feel more relaxed and improve your well-being, which people might need after a long winter of being inside. A proper garden party could be an excuse to dress up and serve tea. Tap into your creativity and play pretend for a bit.
2. Floral Design Party
If you don’t have your own flowers for everyone to enjoy, you can buy some fresh-cut flowers and let your guests go wild designing their own bouquets — which they can take home with them! Enjoy one another’s company while putting beautiful blooms together.
Some great flowers to include for this party would be:
- Daffodil: honesty, faith
- Tulip: aspiration, perfect love
- Primrose: new beginnings, protection
- Camellia: adoration, desire
- Peony: romance, prosperity
It doesn’t matter if your guests are well-versed in flower arrangements. Encourage their creativity and do what feels right to them. In the end, everyone will have a fabulous bouquet to take home and put on display. Once they wilt, your guests can dry out the flowers and press them to have them forever.
3. Pool Party
A great way to welcome spring in climates that have already warmed up is by throwing a pool party. Encourage others to bring their swimsuits and enjoy poolside favorites like hot dogs and hamburgers. Swimming can be an excellent way for your loved ones to jumpstart any spring fitness goals, as it’s an easy aerobic exercise that builds muscle while stretching your body. Even if nobody swims laps, you can still spend time together in the water.
4. Late-Night Bonfire
If the weather is still chilly but you’re ready to welcome spring, try hosting a bonfire party. Your bonfire doesn’t need to be large to create warmth. You can build a fire pit in your backyard or buy one to set up for smaller parties. Once there, you can roast marshmallows or create other fun snacks as you talk about stories and plans for the spring around the flames.
5. Spring Potluck
Are you planning a larger party? Don’t take all the food preparation responsibilities upon your shoulders. Instead, host a potluck, where everyone can bring their favorite spring-themed dish to share with others. Ensure you have enough food in each category — or else you might end up with many desserts or soups!
You may have a large spread depending on the number of people you invite. Try to keep the food out of the sun for too long by covering it with a frame canopy, which can keep out rain and shine due to its vinyl fabric properties. Plus, tents are large enough for your guests to duck under in case you experience a quick spring shower.
6. Fruit Spread
Spring is the season of fresh fruits. Some of the most delicious options are ripe for the picking right about now. Strawberries are an obvious choice and you can create so many fun decorations around the tasty morsel. Hues of reds and pinks — as well as baskets of strawberries and cherries — should adorn your tables. Offer water with freshly cut lemons and limes. These fruits could be just the thing to refresh you as you spend time outside, soaking up the sun.
7. Dream Party
What better way to celebrate your dreams than to share them with your friends while you gaze up at the clouds? A dream party is the best way to discuss your goals with your loved ones. Whether you’re in school or have long since graduated, you can dream up spring break trips or other vacations with a lowkey vibe to refresh your body and mind. You might talk to your friends about your career and revamp your 5-year plan.
Some of the best dreams to consider while throwing this party are as follows:
- Career goals
- Relationship or family intentions
- Bucket list destinations
- Preparing for a new pet
- Manifesting your dream home
No dream is too small to be featured in the dream party. Anything you want to aspire toward is welcome at the event, as are people who will support you endlessly. Find a creative way to display your dreams — like on a vision board — so everyone can have a piece of the party to take home.
Throw the Greatest Party of Spring
Springtime only comes once a year, but it can generate so much excitement and motivation in those who look for a reason to get back outside in the sun. Throw a party to remember by inspiring your guests with things to do or celebrate in the season of newness. By sticking to a theme that celebrates the qualities of being outside, you’ll help everyone celebrate the arrival of spring to the fullest. You’ll be a host to remember while having a great time with your loved ones.
