My Name is Spring




The days are longer, the sun is shining brighter, there is a hint of fresh flowers in the air, the snow is turning to rain, the surrounded gray tones are quickly shedding... The world around us is coming to life again as it is reborn ... 
Nature is changing her face ...
Hello , 
my name is Spring ! Let's Party !



  
Let's welcome the season and gather together to celebrate the first day of Spring.
But...
How to organize  a ''Spring party'' inside when I know that the perfect environment for it is the outdoor ??? How to make the occasion special ??? What can give the immediate feel of Spring ??? 
 
Yes, Spring has always arrived with those happy memories of my bright childhood; 
those happy memories of one curious free-spirited little girl drawing spring flowers and butterflies on her notebook; 
those vivid memories of my grandma's garden full of dew pink tulips and  white daffodils; 
those memories of friends secretly cutting hyacinths from the public parks just to smell the spring scent  for a long time ...
That's it...!
The table setting should provide masses of color, fun and excitement. The party table should embrace all that spring shades of purple, blue, green, pink ...  









My son helped me to made this Spring banner from tissue paper 



The abundance of colors is the key to the cheerful childishly charming spring table which I want to create:



 



the color of the flowers (No party looks its best without flowers),







the color of the carefully crafted teacups and saucers,








the charm of lemon & cranberry cupcakes topped with colorful sugar flowers,  


 


 the color of specially decorated shortbread cookies,







the natural colors of attractively arranged fruits (Isn't all about the presentation?!),




the color of the all spring touches and details that make the party bright and festive,




 and 
the color of the small gifts for the guests as the symbolic gesture of simply saying "Thank you for the wonderful time I spent with you, My Friend " 






How I hope that these vivid, joyful colors of my table setting are loudly shouting ''Party! Let's celebrate SPRING! Let's be Happy!"
How I want this celebration of the season to encourage friendships to bloom all year/life/ long !






Dear Friend , 
Thank you for being my guest !








                                       Happy Spring !

           


It is  a great pleasure to join these lovely  ladies
