As soon as the warmer weather hits, it’s time to leap out of hibernation and into the fragrant air of spring. If you’re lucky enough to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or wedding at this time of year, or you simply want to use the flower-filled season as an excuse to host a party, you’ve come to the right place for inspiration!

Let’s take a look at a few fresh ideas for springtime celebrations.

Spring venues

If you dread the thought of spring cleaning, throwing a party might be just the motivation you need to tidy up your garden, outdoor entertaining area or verandah. Redecorate with hanging flower pots, colourful furniture and new tableware, ready for festive celebrations.

When you don’t have the space at home, Sydney is blessed with a number of local parks in full bloom. The Royal Botanic Garden is awash with colour, and you can picnic among flowers such as the butterfly amaryllis and the Sydney rock orchid. Centennial Park is perfect for large celebrations, and there’s a spot to suit every occasion, whether you want playgrounds, sports fields, flowering formal gardens and picturesque ponds.

Can’t wait to feel the sand between your toes again? It’s definitely the right time to slip, slop, slap and hit Sydney’s beaches for spring parties. Shelley Beach in Manly is perfect for adventure-seekers, with great conditions for swimming, snorkelling and stand-up paddle boarding, and there’s tables, bathrooms and shady trees.

And of course parks and beaches are the perfect place for activities like football, cricket and frisbee –  with a few eskies filled with ice-cold beer!

Spring finger food catering in Sydney

It’d be a shame to stay indoors for a spring celebration, whether it’s a day or night event. So forget about sit-down dinners, and opt for easy mobile catering in Sydney to fit with the breezy style of the season. Especially appropriate for large outdoor parties, hiring a hot dog stand means the food comes to you and your guests will love indulging in one of their favourite finger foods!

Sipping on cocktails, mocktails or anything colourful to match the theme of spring is refreshing and festive. Serve large pitchers of pink lemonade with floating strawberries or punch bowls filled with sparkling, fruit-filled Sangria. For desserts, stick with seasonal fruits, or make zingy lemon cupcakes or grapefruit mousse with mint sprigs and berries on top.

Spring theming

Whether you’re holding a garden celebration, a tea party or a 21st bash with a hundred guests, spring is the perfect excuse for whimsical decorations to highlight the beginning of new life. 

A palette of vibrant floral patterns or pastel blues, pinks, greens and yellows works well for dinnerware, table cloths, streamers and balloons.

Small décor touches can evoke the nature of spring, and your options are endless. Hang ornate birdcages or strings of paper butterflies from tree branches, fill vases with lemon slices and top with bunches of fresh wildflowers, or mix and match patio chairs and antique furniture for a shabby chic look at your house party.

Are you already designing your party invitations? We thought so! Dive in and welcome spring with the first of many fabulous, warm-weather celebrations.
