april entertaining tips

For April parties, let's focus on all things floral. The trees are slowly starting to bloom again and the flowers are beginning to pop up everywhere. Keep reading for spring and floral themed entertaining tips. If you find that you need more inspiration, check out this article from Brit & Co for more ideas.

MAKE IT EASY: Use cute paper plates and napkins.
While I typically suggest opting for reusable plates in order to stay eco-conscious, some parties can be made easier (and cuter) by using a selection of adorable paper plates and napkins. Oh Happy Day has the cutest party supplies like these metallic flower plates, French stripe plates, and cherry napkins.

DRINK OF CHOICE: Floral Ice-Cubes
Serve glasses of rosé or sparkling water with homemade floral ice cubes for a special, spring-themed touch.

HOSTESS GIFT: Painted Mason Jar + Flowers
In keeping with the floral theme, a cute and easy hostess gift idea is to paint a few Mason jars and fill them with a few blooms (real or faux). For the matte look, use chalk paint on the jars and then a bit of sandpaper to distress them.

DECOR STAPLE: Paper Tassels
For spring, I love the look of a paper tassel garland using bright, happy pastels. They are super easy to make with tissue paper and ribbon/cord, plus you can get really creative with your color combinations. As always, I like the combination of a neutral + bright pastel + metallic.

EASY APPETIZER: Peach Bruschetta with Lemon Ricotta + Honey
Bruschetta is quite possibly the easiest and most versatile appetizer out there. There are so many flavor combinations, but for spring I really like the idea of this grilled peach bruschetta topped with lemon ricotta and a drizzle of honey. This is the perfect little bite to enjoy outdoors with your friends.

PARTY LOOK:
For an April party look, try pairing shades of white together. A bright white kick-flare jean looks super cute with a knotted t-shirt layered under a a light, neutral cardigan. To celebrate the warmer weather, style this look with a pair of wedge espadrilles.
