There’s a lot to celebrate in the spring: the return of warmer weather, the colorful blooms all around us, and the fun of holidays such as Easter and Mother’s Day. Now is the time to enjoy gathering with friends and family, savoring the moment, and looking forward to the lazy days of summer that will be here before we know it! Let’s begin the week by taking a look at 10 colorful party ideas that will put a unique stamp on your next event:
Since flowers are all around us throughout the spring, why not incorporate floral elements into your seasonal party decor?! When Camille Styles hosted a recent garden party, she called on Margot Blair Floral to create a floral table runner using Coral Charm peonies, Passion Vine, Juliette garden roses, apricot parrot tulips and ranunculus. Are you tempted to try and recreate the look?
