Wish It Were Spring Party Theme
February 25, 2014 by Shanna Hatfield
As I mentioned yesterday, I recently held a “Wish It Were Spring” themed luncheon for my book club group.
Today, as I stare out at a fresh covering of snow on the ground, I truly wish it were spring.
Here are a few decorating ideas I incorporated to add some bright pops of spring color to the gathering.
Here’s the table, set with a cheerful tulip cloth and bright pink and yellow napkins.
I hauled out a set of antique Noritake china and some sherbert cups I found in an antique store when Captain Cavedweller and I were living in newly married poverty.
I used seed packets (Forget Me Nots) to make placecards. I thought they were fun and added a little charm of their own to the table.
The centerpiece was a nest with a bird and eggs (and a miniature nest with a teensy little bird).
And I risked life and limb entwining dogwood branches around the chandelier. I loved how it looked when I finished. One of the guests called it whimsical. I had to agree. In fact, I wish I’d left the branches up there.
Stay tuned the rest of the week for some of the recipes I made for the party!
