My daughters and I have a tradition to welcome the spring by having a Spring Party on the first day of spring.

We also have a Fall Party on the first day of autumn. It is always a fun day of getting ready for the fall.
Spring Party & Cleaning…
Traditionally the first day of spring is the day when we get the home ready for the spring. We put all the winter decorations away and bring out the spring decorations.
So for us it is an all day celebration. Yeah, cleaning is a part of our party. If you invite friends they may only want to join in the other fun…
Spring Party Decorations
Anything spring goes! Bring out the pastel colored curtains, table runners, pillows, and blankets. Buy some fresh flowers or get the fake ones that are available in many stores. You might even find some cute ones at a dollar store.

Last time we had the party we only made a cake. As you can see I’m not professional cake decorator or gifted in that area in any way.
Notice the cute bunny plate? The plastic eggs on it were filled with chocolate. That was another little treat in addition to the cake.
