Spring is in the air: a time of growth, new beginnings and the beauty of nature… not to mention spring party planning. What better time is there to get together with friends and celebrate? Indeed, spring is the season where people emerge from their winter hibernation and start preparing for the beautiful weather ahead.
If you’re looking to plan a spring party, here are three tips to help you along the way:
Bring it Outside
With the birds chirping and the sun finally making an appearance, there’s no better time to have a backyard party. But as the adage goes, April showers are very real and very imminent. To make sure your backyard spring party goes without a hitch, plan ahead and invest in a tent rental to house all of your guests. Tent rentals create a versatility in your outdoor celebration, where guests can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors or kick it in the rental tents with the outdoor dance floors. And in the case of inclement weather, renting a tent means you’ll have automatic backup!
Get Food Festive
Behind us are the days of heavy winter appetizers that leave us feeling warm and sluggish. Instead, think light, bright and delicious for the bites at your spring soiree. Get creative with fusion dishes such as wonton tuna nachos, with tuna tartar served on wonton chips topped with avocado, soy sauce and spring greens. For dessert, create assorted fruit kebabs and rent a chocolate fountain so guests can dip and indulge to their liking. But don’t forget the table linen rentals or things could get messy! As a tip, have at least 200 napkins available for every 15 guests attending.
Keep Drinks Simple
If you’ve ever done spring party planning before, you know that booze can get expensive and complicated quickly. Experts recommend planning for two to three cocktails per guest at your party. To keep things as simple, succinct, and elegant as possible, create a signature cocktail that’s easy to put together and to serve at the party. In addition to that, provide another drink option, such as champagne. And if you’re serving coffee, make sure to make enough ahead of time, as 80% of people will say yes to tea or coffee if you offer it to them!
