5 Trends for Spring 2021 Hosting

Spring, the time of year where you start to open up and reach for the sky. Temperatures are getting warmer and we are looking forward to finally being able to spend some time outside on a patio for brunch or a picnic in the park. As the days become longer, we begin to think about all the events we could have! While we still have to remain somewhat safe due to Covid, we can start having socially distanced outdoors events again and for those that have been vaccinated, at home soirees are slowly returning.

There are plenty of ideas on how to make these events outstanding so stay tuned for more inspiration on how to make the most out of those situations. With a new year and a new season comes new trends. We are predicting some of the top trends in spring entertaining this year and want to share them with you. These trends are a great way to get your home ready for entertaining this season and we have options that fit any budget

Fresh Scent Candles

This Is a no-brainer for anyone that is candle-obsessed as much as we are. Candles are the gatekeepers of the vibe. It is one of the first things people notice when they walk in. The scent is everything. Scents set the mood and elevate the ambiance. This is the time of year when we switch out the heavier scents for something fresher. You want people to walk in and be carried away by honeysuckles and dandelions not punched in the face by Apple pies and caramel. Put away the musky or dessert-smelling candles and opt for Clean lighter scents of fresh fruit and florals. We see scents like magnolia, lemon and sage dominating this season.

These light and airy fragrances are comfortable and fun without being overbearing. They sort of bring the outside indoors and blend well with the natural spring air. It's a wonderfully inviting fragrance to have while also having all the doors open for a backyard….. Soft scents such as these are subtle enough to be put on display and used in centerpieces or in vases. Here are two great examples:

Peony & Magnolia by Blossom

White Sage + Lavender by Unlax

Minimalist vases

Speaking of vases as decor,decor is something we thrive on. Although things such as balloons, banners, and bouquets are the first things we all start thinking to get when we begin planning the decor, there's nothing quite like a beautiful vase. They can be used as centerpieces or on a pedestal, with or without flowers, or even color-themed marbles in glass vases. Vases can become more of a talking point. The ideas are endless. Minimalist vases with their simplistic design and muted colors are the perfect accessory for any hostess. The great thing about the design of minimalist vases is the fact they go well with just about every style decor. So they are the best if needed in a clutch. Just grab and go! Vases such as

Bloomsbury’s Adelyn Table Vase

INGLENIX White Ceramic Vases

Rose-colored Glassware

There’s just something about springtime that makes mixing drinks and crafting cocktails more fun. The anticipation of sitting outside, drinking a nice cool cocktail is almost as intoxicating as that flute of champagne and dash of OJ you calling a mimosa. We tend to start drinking lighter and use more flora garnishes. Making drinks fancy enough for guests to consider them insta-worthy can be a daunting and draining task. This is the perfect time to make drinks extra pretty by using rose, blush and pink-tinted drinking glasses. This gives a fresh, romantic, and fancy feel and can make any drink, alcohol or none, seem instantly more interesting. Colored glassware is also a hostess hack for a quick way to zhoosh up a party last minute. So having glasses like these are a must:

Martha Stewart’s Blush Coupe Glasses

Fancy reusable straws

Ok, let's get into some real details here. No one and I mean no one should still be using plastic disposable straws when entertaining. I’m not going to list the reasons why so let’s move onto paper straws. They are definitely the better alternative and if you are anything like us, you know where to find any that will suit a vast array of color schemes and occasions. Paper straws are awesome for large events but what about smaller, more intimate shindigs? Hear us out - when things get back to normal we want to return to doing normal things like drinking from real cups and glasses. Reusable straws can provide a sanitary yet stylish alternative. Paper straws get soggy after a while and even though they are more environmentally friendly than plastic, they still aren't the most sustainable option.We simply adore these reusable straws:

Punch Bowls

Throwing it way back. Remember growing up and all the high school parties or proms on TV had punch bowls? I think they were onto something. Large batch drinks have become quite popular over the past few years because as much as we love trying to make a craft cocktail, no one has time to do that for 10 or 15 people throughout the night. So instead of hiring a bartender, large batch drinks, or punches work well for events. And while we love a good drink dispenser, there is something just a tad more elevated about having your drinks in a punch bowl. It’s reflective of a communal event and there is some dope inspiration for garnish and styling that is easier and much more time-efficient than making every individual drink look cute. Something like these can range from $50 to $300 depending
