Everything is starting to get coated in a thick yellow layer and if you are from Atlanta, you know what that means… It is spring! Yup, that is right – the pollen is awful, but once we get through this tough phase, the weather will be amazing, the flowers will be gorgeous, and everyone will want to spend time outside.
What better way to celebrate than throwing a great spring party? If you want to throw one this year, here are my best tips on how to throw a great spring party:
Take advantage of the weather
First of all, it is spring and the weather is warming up nicely, so make sure you take advantage of the weather by having the party outdoors. If you or your friends and family are concerned about COVID, this is also a great way to stay somewhat socially distanced from others, while still enjoying a really great spring party! You can do so much outside: bring out a TV, light up the BBQ, set out tables and chairs, and bring the lawn games! Anything you can do inside, you can also do outside.
Add in a few decorations
Since the theme of your party will be focused on spring weather, it is important to decorate the entertainment areas accordingly, if you want decorations, that is. There would be no better way to decorate than to use flowers to welcome the start of spring. Go for colorful flowers that represent the time when plants begin to bloom and produce their beauty. If this is too much for you, you can consider buying colorful paper at the local stationary shop and cutting out petals to make your flowers. If you want to go big, you can also do a fun craft and make flower ice cubes for your spring themed party!
It’s pretty easy to find edible flowers in Atlanta now, just go to a farmers market or check out a specialty ordering store like Fresh Harvest or maybe Garnish and Gather. Simply place a flower into an ice cube tray, fill with water, and freeze for a stunning effect when you serve drinks at your party this year. You could even fill the tray with pink lemonade instead of water, if you wanted to spruce it up even more. Honestly, though, your decorations do not have to be much. The people and the connections that you make are what matter most!
Think about easy food
Undoubtedly, you want to make the most of one of the first sunny days of the year. Of course, there is no better way to do this than with your grill. Break out the barbecue and spend the day serving burgers and hotdogs and chicken to your guests. Not only is this easy, but it calls out, “SPRING” to me!
Create your guest list
Creating the guest list is important. It’s a bit easier if it is a family event, but when you are inviting friends and family, or just friends, it can be a bit harder to navigate. Start by writing down your must-invite people. This may be your best friend, or your sister. Whoever it is, start there and go down your list of friends. Make sure you are inviting people that get along and will keep the party flowing, instead of stopping it. The worst thing you can do is to invite a few people that will not get along. Another tip that is very important, in my opinion, is to know that you should not feel obligated to invite anyone – this is your party and you get the final say. Invite the people you want to invite and do not invite those that you do not want in your home.
