Host A Garden Party To Welcome Spring

I can’t think of a better way to officially welcome spring than to host a fabulous little garden soiree. The temps might still be a tad fickle but with any luck, the sun will shine bright enough for you to arrange a few spring blossoms, lay out some simple place settings, and invite a few friends over for a little celebration to welcome back the warmer weather.

I’ve put together a fabulous gallery of inspirations to help you get started below!
