Host A Garden Party To Welcome SpringGabrielle Blair
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!
Spring Blossoms 1 of 18A tablescape doesn't have to be elaborate, in fact, I think for a garden party-simple is best. A few blossoming branches for a centerpiece (or an orchid if you please), simple white linens and your'e in business.
