This is a fun theme to ring in Daylight Savings time as we head into warmer weather and more sunlight! Celebrate the unofficial start of spring by throwing a sun-inspired social!
Invitations and Decorations:
Make this event feel extra special by creating invitations to hand-deliver to residents. Consider using a sunshine notepad as the base of your invitation, using a marker to write in the details of the event. Or, design an invitation on your computer using sunshine clipart and an easy-to-read font.
To decorate your space, focus on the yellows and oranges of the sun. Try balloon bouquets as centrepieces and sunshine-inspired confetti for the tables. You can even use clear jars or vases of different sizes and fill them up with Lemonheads, yellow sprinkles, orange sprinkles, yellow and orange Starbursts, or other colourful candies.
What to Serve:
Keep the mood bright and shiny by having a lemonade bar. Include a few varieties of lemonade as well as mix-ins for the residents to use as they’d like.
For food, you can keep it simple with bright citrus wedges or kabobs; be sure to use more than just oranges. You can also incorporate grapefruit and blood oranges for a delicious complement to the oranges.
Work with dining to create a sunshine-inspired dessert bar that could include lemon bars, sunshine cupcakes, or even yellow macarons.
