Celebrate the spring by hosting a Spring Party for your kids or friends and family.
My daughters and I have a tradition to welcome the spring by having a Spring Party on the first day of spring.
The ideas here are great for Easter too. Easter fun for kids!
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 Ideas for Kids
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.
1. Spring Banner
Make a beautiful spring banner or buy one from here. Hang it on the wall or in the doorway and be greeted by this happy banner when you walk by.
Hang a few cute butterflies in the children’s bedrooms. Or maybe they would like to make their own from card stock. Imagine how lovely the room will look with butterflies hanging from the ceiling.
3. Spring Block Letters
Spring is in the air! Yes, it surely is or will be when it is spring. Spring is such a fun time with all the trees coming to life and flowers beginning to bloom. Celebrate the season with fun spring block letters from ZAM Handmade Market.
4. Paper Flowers
Cute spring flower set from Sew Love The Day makes it easy to create a fun backdrop for taking spring photos. Bring the spring inside by having a flower wall.
Spring Party Food
1. Bunny Cake
Last time we had the party we only made a cake. As you can see we are not professional cake decorators…
The plastic eggs were filled with chocolate and we did have more than four :).
Here are some other fun ideas for Spring Party Food:
2. Spring Confetti Bars
