Spring soiree décor
Ditch Your grandma’s pastels and floral patterns when it comes to decor and instead use lush, earthy greens, natural elements and crisp whites.  Your tablescape as an example:  tablecloth, napkins or placemats could incorporate spring colors like orange marmalade and geometric patterns inspired by a 1960s “mod look.”
Add textures to your décor with elements such as wheat grass, curly willow, succulents, wood, moss in terrariums, and simple white floral to enhance the overall look while keeping things edgy and natural feeling, but still on trend.

Springtime hors d’oeurves
Ditch the full, seated dinner and heavy foods in favor of light, colorful passed dishes incorporating fresh spring ingredients.

Party favors and other sweet treats
Get creative and go luxe with desserts like apple pie in a mason jar, lavender and honey-kissed carrot cake, monogrammed sugar cookies.
Send your guests home with crisp, modern and fun spring party favors to leave a lasting impression!  Wrap a wine label with custom text around a box, wax stamp the top so it looks like the top of a wine bottle.  Fill it with truffle figs: figs hallowed out and filled with balsamic chocolate cream.
