I love a good dinner party. It’s always fun to see your friends while indulging in a delicious meal! Part of the fun of dinner parties is coming up with a cool theme, but a good theme can be tricky to come up with. Fortunately, I’ve rounded up the best Spring dinner party ideas for you. Your guests are sure to have tons of fun at any one of these!
Spring Dinner Party Ideas
Choosing a theme can be hard, but I’ve really fallen in love with this Casino dinner party theme. Taking the inspiration from a deck of playing cards, this red and black themed party will have everyone ready to play a few fun games…
Or, if a casino theme isn’t quite your style, how about a garden party? If your tulips have popped up, and your hyacinth bulbs are smelling fantastic, why not take the dinner festivities outside? Go with a color scheme that matches elements of your garden, and tell your guests to come in garden party attire. Hats are CERTAINLY required…
Other theme ideas include a Taco Tuesday party (margaritas included), a Wine and Cheese party, or even a classic Murder Mystery soiree!
When hosting a spring dinner party, I really like to plan my menu around my theme. For example, if you were going with a Casino theme (as mentioned above) I would serve classic Vegas-esque items like shrimp cocktails and steak. Don’t forget to have a plethora of real cocktails available, too.
Or, if you were having a spring garden party, why not serve foods that were part of your spring garden harvest? Serve bright green salads, root veggies, peas, and even winter squash. I don’t know about you, but tasty salads get me excited for spring!
Some other food options include sushi, breakfast for dinner, barbecue, or even classic homemade pizza.
Naturally, your decor should match your theme quite closely. Decorate with red and black for a casino themed party, and use a deck of cards as your inspiration. Don’t forget that when in Vegas (or in your living room for a casino themed dinner party) gaudier is better. Don’t be afraid to really go wild! You could even decorate your dinner table like a huge poker table!
For a garden party, I find it best to choose decorations that fit with a natural theme. I think a lavender and sage colored table would look absolutely beautiful, especially with stunning floral arrangements down the middle. Remember: it’s spring, and you can never have too many flowers.
No matter how what kind of spring dinner party you decide to throw, make your evening magical by picking a theme and weaving those elements into the party wherever possible. It’s the little things that matter!
