SPRING into entertaining this season
29 Thursday Mar 2012
April is only a few days away, so put away those dark table cloths and get ready to introduce a fresh and bright feel to your spring entertaining! Whether you’re throwing an indoor barbecue or tea party, keep your style dainty and your foods flavorful.
Get in the spring spirit with a nice luncheon for friends. Customize invitations to guests with a floral flair by making copies of a vintage floral greeting card and print details on the back. Make sure to adorn your cocktail and kitchen tables with fresh flowers or fruit. In other words, bring the outdoors IN!
For those nice cooler spring evenings, have another couple over for a barbeque dinner. Grill out and then bring the meal inside to enjoy quality time with friends in your home. To decorate for the get-together, purchase some simple plants and small potted flowers that blend with the other spring colors in your living area.
Who doesn’t love a good tea party? Incorporate rose motifs and vintage china. Treat guests to teas they love as well as those that they’ve never tried before. Utilize your bar or buffet to display the teas and finger foods. Make sure to set out milk, honey and sugar, either in cubes or pastel-colored sweetner packages. Don’t forget the petits fours, tea sandwiches and tarts!
