Ringing in Spring: 4 Party Ideas
Springtime doesn't just mean blooming flowers and warmer weather. It's a great excuse to get together with your fellow Parrotheads and celebrate. Here are a few foolproof spring party ideas that help you and your guests have the best possible time.
1. Celebrate the season
The spring is a common time for get-togethers with weddings, graduations and holidays, but you don't need an excuse - just celebrate the season itself.
Set up a party area outside where your guests can appreciate the warming weather. Use pastel- or bright-colored tablecloths, paper lanterns and festive dishware for a true springtime feeling. Incorporate flowers and greenery everywhere as well. Use tulips and other springy blooms for your centerpieces and accents.
While the spring is warmer than the winter, it can still get chilly when the sun drops. Use outdoor heaters or a fire pit to give your friends and family a place to gather and stay warm, keeping your outdoor party going for hours.
2. Make springy drinks
Use your frozen concoction maker to blend up some seasonal beverages that any guest could enjoy. Focus on using fresh ingredients that exude the essence of spring, like fruit or leafy greens.
When in doubt, just reach for a margarita. It's as green as the growing grass and refreshing all year long. Try garnishing it with a festive fruit and rimming the glass with a pastel-colored salt.

3. Include a springtime activity
Everyone's heard of a garden party, but what about a gardening party? Invite your friends over to get their hands dirty and plant some seeds with you in a fun atmosphere.
Of course there are plenty of other fun activities that don't feel like work. Play a quick game of spring softball, learn how to cook a complex dish together from an expert, swap some fun spring cleaning supplies or even tie-dye clothing out in the yard.
4. Serve seasonal food
Nothing's better than enjoying food that's in season. It tastes better, looks more appetizing and often costs less. Try to build a dish around vegetables like asparagus, artichokes, spinach and snow peas - all of which are in season. Pineapples, rhubarb, mango and avocado are also ready for harvest in the spring.
