Now is the Time to Dream of Spring!

There are a few reasons why we love February, and the list doesn’t just involve Valentine’s Day. We love cozy, cold evenings; that last day of playing in the snow; and enjoying piping hot lattes before the temperature rises and we all switch back to iced drinks make February quite grand. Our favorite thing about February, is that soon the snow will melt and we can all agree that now is the time to dream of spring.

Time to Dream of Spring Time

Whether it’s a wedding, an engagement, or a few bridal showers, springtime is the perfect time to celebrate. The weather is wonderful and the world seems to come back to life. Here are a few of our best party ideas and tips for any event you’re planning this spring.

Embrace Color. Fall and winter events lend themselves to dark and heavy color palettes that enhance the mood of your fête. (Or, for the truly adventurous, see our post on Winter White Weddings.) Springtime events cry out for bright and sophisticated color palettes that include rich and glowing greens, bright pinks and oranges, and smooth taupes and whites for texture. When you plan an event with a March, April, or May date, consider diving into all sides of the color wheel and have some fun!

Get Your Spring Drink On! Because Spring begins the start of the growing season, many classic fruits and vegetables become brighter, healthier, and better during this time of year. When you plan a party, a fun signature cocktail can make a great addition to any menu. Think about your favorite gin and vodka cocktails with a splash of cucumber, lavender, or thyme to make something truly unique and worthy of the season.

It’s Time to Consider Your Bridal Bod. It’s true, every bride worries about what she will look like in her wedding dress. There is still time in the depth of winter’s doldrums to start a new exercise and dieting plan to look your absolute best on your big day. While it may be too late for New Year’s Resolutions, keep an eye out for February deals and coupons to your local gyms and yoga studios. Also, consider adding a trip to a spin class or yoga class as part of your bachelorette party or weekend. It’s a fun and healthy way to diversify your plans for the weekend.

Never Fear the Great Outdoors. Sure, we live in Tennessee where seasonal allergies can be the end of us all. But even if you live in the most pollen free state in the union, there’s no argument that springtime is the perfect time to move any party out of doors. Whatever the occasion, even the backyard can be turned into a royal engagement party courtyard with a little tender loving care. Consider pitching a tent at any venue, or add a spread of tables and chairs to the lawn so that your guests can eat outside.

Add a Few Outdoor Games. Parties are fun. Food is good. Great drink is better. But nothing really spices up an afternoon or evening affair like a few outdoor party games. Springtime is the perfect time have corn hole, bocci, or even badminton available to your guests. If your party is informal (or maybe even if it’s not), you may consider putting up a net for volleyball. Because spring weather is warm, but not hot, it’s the perfect time to add a few extra activities for your guests.

No matter what the occasion, it is never too early to plan and to dream. Start thinking about where you would like to have your next party and plan it for the spring. It’s a beautiful time of year!
