Goodbye snow, hello SPRING! Now that we are finally seeing some warmer temperatures, we can usher in the season of outdoor parties, showers, and celebrations! No matter what you’re celebrating, I know you’ll find lots of unique inspiration in this pink and yellow spring party. It’s full of bright colors, sweet details, and easy-to-recreate decorations.
While I was recently browsing the aisles of a craft store, I came across corsage boxes in the wedding aisle. They were just simple plastic containers that closed at the top. Hello! Cute lunch boxes for outdoor parties! If you’re worried about using breakable plates and china outside and are looking for an alternative to paper plates, these corsage boxes are fabulous when repurposed for lunch containers. I jazzed them up in a few steps!
- Line plastic corsage boxes with fun parchment paper liners. I chose a yellow + white check.
- Fill with a delicious lunch! Serve salads in clear plastic cups and cookies in cupcake liners.
- Close box and tie with a yellow and white striped ribbon, flower detail, and simple white fork!
When looking for a tablecloth, skip the vinyl as it never looks fully smooth. Visit your fabric store and grab some simple cotton, iron, and it’s ready to go! I chose a hot pink to usher in the cheery, spring season! The fabric is easily washable and reusable for parties to come. Keep your color scheme simple-two colors (pink and yellow) with touches of white.
A simple cake stand topped with a vase of pink peonies makes an easy centerpiece. Use extra greenery under the corsage boxes. Spring is all about the flowers so don’t be afraid to let them shine!
My favorite detail from the party was the drink stirrers! Top a bamboo skewer with a silk flower (use hot glue to keep in place if necessary). Slide on berries for a delicious twist to your drink of choice!
Pick and choose from these simple party ideas to create a gorgeous and colorful spring party or recreate the look for your own celebration! For more entertaining tips and ideas visit the Homes.com Idea Gallery. Happy celebrating!
