With the warm air, and long awaited sunshine, we are starting to see that spring is finally here! There are so many things that come to mind when we think of spring: picnics, outdoor activities, baby and wedding showers, and one of our favorite activities-spring entertaining. With the combination of springtime and some helpful tips from Hickory Farms, you’ll be well on your way to hosting spring gatherings that are second to none.
Create the Perfect Table Spread
Spring is the perfect time to host a housewarming party or small gathering with your closest friends. Nothing brings friends together more than a colorful and delicious spread of snacks and beverages. To create a spread that appeals to everyone’s tastes, an array of colors and textures is key. Crunchy nuts, sweet candy, delicious seasonal fruit, and savory flavors like creamy cheese really create a springtime spread that appeals to every taste bud.
Now that it’s finally warming up, wait no longer to enjoy a picnic in the park with your loved ones. Bring a blanket and a picnic basket filled with your favorite quick, easy, and healthy lunches. Slicing sausage and cheese before you leave the house and packing it into your basket makes for a very easy snack in the park. Enjoy the fresh spring air with your loved ones all while sitting in the sun and enjoying great conversation.
Spring is the season of showers. Baby showers, wedding showers are in full bloom during the spring months. Have a friend who is having a shower, or are you hosting a shower? Create some cute spring themed party favors. By taking mini, transparent bags, fill them with your favorite candies. We’ve used our Mini Melt Away Mints to really showcase the colors of spring. When tying the bag, add a charm that coordinates with the event! Add a mini rattle for a baby shower or a rhinestone ring for a wedding shower. These personal touches to your homemade party favor will make it all the more special.
With spring, your creativity, and a little help from Hickory Farms, you are ready to utilize these great spring entertaining tips at your next party!
