With spring in the air and Easter on it’s way, I just want everything to be covered in peach, mint green, and soft yellow. During this time of year, nothing is prettier than pastels. Any occasion or party can benefit from a pastel color palette.

It’s also pretty easy to get all the food, table decor, and snacks rocking the same soft-hued look. Here’s how you can incorporate this delicate palette into your next party.

 

THE CAKE

Surprise guests by offering milkshakes. Mixing up classic vanilla or strawberry shakes is a wonderful way to welcome spring and get everyone excited about the promise of warmer weather.

 

THE TABLE

Upgrade fresh cut flowers by placing them in a glass vase filled with cut lemons. Super simple, yet immediately eye-catching. Plus, the lemons helps improve water flow in the stems of the flowers.

Using a succulent in a tiny votive to serve as a place card is the epitome of adorable. Plus, it can double as a party favor thank you!

Another way to add a hint of spring to the table of course involves more flowers. However, placing delicate petals in an ice cream cone steps outside of the conventional.

It’s a gorgeous, fun take on two classic symbols.

 

THE DECOR

Nothing spruces up a wall like some garland. Using card stock or paint swatches, you can apply a large hole punch to create perfect circles.

Then, simply sew the pieces together on a machine or by hand. Short on time? You can purchase pastel garland on Etsy.
