There’s no better way to celebrate the end of winter than by throwing a bright and cheerful spring party! Planning a birthday party, baby shower, engagement party, or wedding in the spring means you can take advantage of all the beautiful blooming colors. We’ve gathered lots of spring party ideas so your celebration is the prettiest on the block!
Flowering Spring Decor
Planning a spring party is all about using what Mother Nature has given us! Embrace your floral side and pull in sunny colors like yellow, lime green, and sky blue. Hit up a local party retailer or try your hand at some DIY spring party decor.
Play with paper crafts
For these two cheerful crafts, all you need is paper and a pair of scissors. For a cost-effective but eye-catching decoration, DIY some huge paper flowers. Use them as photo props, wall decor, or even centerpieces. Create a super easy backdrop with inexpensive plastic tablecloths cut into strips and tied to a string. Add balloons for an extra pop of color!
📸 Strike a pose! Your beautiful props and backdrops create a perfect photo opportunity. Set up a selfie station for your guests, or rent a photo booth and let a professional handle the shoot.
Put out pretty displays
Set the table for your spring party with repurposed household items. Mason jars are a popular option for their versatility. You can paint the outside, or use dyed water to give it a beautiful spring feel. Use them for floral centerpieces, or to hold tableware like napkins and utensils. In addition to mason jars, you can also use watering cans, metal pails, or upcycled tin cans.
Personalize your decor
Make the party personal. These adorable DIY floral letters are perfect if you have a guest of honor! For brides-to-be, birthday girls, or new babies, they’re a wonderful, personalized addition to your spring party decor. They even make lovely wall decor for nurseries or bedrooms, too.

Refreshing Spring Menu
No spring party is complete without some tasty refreshments! When planning your spring party menu, the key is to keep things light and fresh. From the drinks to the food to the desserts, use variations of sweet and fruity recipes as well as crisp and healthy vegetable dishes.
Juicy spring drinks
Your drink options may need to vary depending on the occasion. For family-friendly events and baby showers, stick with a classic fruit punch. It’s refreshing and so easy to make! For bridal showers, birthdays, and more grown-up celebrations, add some spirits! Sweet and bubbly fruity cocktails are perfect for a spring party.
Healthy spring eats
When it comes to the food for your spring party, keep the fare light. Salads, finger sandwiches, and bite-size snacks are both simple to make and easy for your guests to eat as they mingle. Choose recipes with lots of greens and crisp spring vegetables for a colorful and delicious spread.
Sweet spring treats
Candies, cookies, cakes… you can’t go wrong when choosing tasty treats for your spring party menu. Stick with fruity options for some deliciously sweet and on-theme desserts. For a twist on a classic cheesecake, whip up a mouth-watering lemon cheesecake mousse. Or tie in your decor with a naked lemon cake decked out in lovely fresh blooms.

Don’t let your guests go home empty-handed! Send them away with a charming gift to remember your event by. These spring-themed party favors will ensure they leave with a smile.
Spring for self-care
One great theme for life, in general, is “treat yourself.” So why not treat your guests with a party favor they can enjoy while relaxing at home? Sugar scrubs and bath bombs with floral scents and essential oils are a lovely spring party idea.
Something for the sprouts
No one loves getting gifts more than children. If your spring party will have kids present, have something fun for them to take home. You can’t go wrong with toys or candy of some kind. We love these DIY sidewalk chalk bugs and lollipop flowers – and they’re so easy to make!
Grow and brew
Spring is all about new beginnings and spending quality time with loved ones. For lovers of tea and garden parties, herb plants and tea bag favors are an amazing spring party idea. Depending on the event, play around with some cute puns to tie in your gifts. “Watch love grow” is great for weddings, and “Something is brewing” is perfect for baby showers.

🍿 Movie night: Rent an outdoor movie screen, grab some blankets and chairs, and set up an epic movie party in the backyard.

🔎 Scavenger hunt: It’s like a grown-up Easter egg hunt! Hire a scavenger hunt company or write up your own clues to send your guests on a quest around the neighborhood or city.
Play a-may-zing music
Create the perfect soundtrack for your spring party with live music. If you’re hosting an upbeat birthday bash or engagement party, hire a singing guitarist or cover band to play all your favorite tunes. For a more low-key cocktail party or shower, a pianist or string quartet can provide beautiful background music.
