When spring arrives, most people cannot wait to celebrate because they remained indoors for months while snow and ice covered the ground.
Spring is the season to get outdoors and spend time with friends and family.
This calls for a celebration and though many people would love to play host, most of them do not have large entertainment budgets.
With these inexpensive decorating ideas, anyone can afford to host a spring celebration.
Begin With The Table
Most parties center around a table filled with an array of delicious food. Make this area even more appealing by creating an attractive spring-themed centerpiece. Add pastel-colored rocks to a large vase or bowl and fill the container with water. Slice lemons, limes, and oranges and float the slices to create a fresh centerpiece that smells delightful.
Create a fruit bouquet by following online instructions for cutting fruit into flower shapes and arranging it in a vase. Watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, cherries, and strawberries are perfect fruits to include. Guests will enjoy looking at this centerpiece almost as much as they do eating it, which is something they cannot do with a flower centerpiece that is much more expensive.
Add a cup of yogurt fruit dip or a fondue pot filled with chocolate and watch this centerpiece become the most popular item on the table!
Children love to dye Easter eggs so let them help create a festive centerpiece. Blow the yolks and white out of some eggs, rinse the insides, and have children dye or paint the shells beautiful springtime colors. Place the eggshells in a footed bowl with a wide mouth and fill in the gaps with cuttings from mums and delphiniums.
Complete The Look
Spring is the season of growth so bring the garden indoors by placing containers of planted herbs around the room. The aromas are delicious and the greenery livens any room. Some herbs feature delicate flowers that accent the décor and these can even be harvested and placed in small vases or hollowed out halves of eggshells put at place settings on a dining table.
Purchase some wooden blocks and spring-themed scrapbooking supplies from a store and use these to create spring-themed block displays for mantles, end tables, and accent tables. Adorn rabbit and chick figurines with cuttings of flowers from the garden attached with floral wire or wired picks.
Even teacups make beautiful springtime containers for flowers when they are decorated with pastel-colored ribbon.
