10 Design Ideas for Receptions This Spring

Posted by Ryan Owens on Jan 4th 2014

The season of rebirth and new beginnings ushers forth a sense of freshness and simplicity. Capture these essential elements in your event receptions this spring. No matter what type of event you’re hosting – a wedding, a corporate milestone, an once-in-a-lifetime anniversary – let the colors, aromas and essence of spring guide your design decisions. Then call us for durable and well-crafted banquet tables, stylish Chiavari chairs and an assortment of metal, plastic and wood folding chairs that will complement your event decor in every way.

Go for Color

With gardens in full bloom and green grass everywhere, be sure to incorporate the vibrant colors of spring on your tablescapes, background fabric swaths, chair covers, etc. Be inspired by the colors of the season and let your event come alive with color!

Floral Centerpiece

Choose flowers that are readily available during spring instead of those that are forced into bloom. Seasonal flowers are not only more affordable, but they will also stay fresh-looking longer, assuring you of a colorful event area until the last guest leaves.

Seasonal Fruits

Set out fresh spring fruits as part of your table decor (of course, your guests can enjoy them or take them home after the reception). Your selection should depend on which part of the country you reside in, but choose the freshest assortment you can find.

Clear Tent

Hold your reception outdoors under a clear tent. This will give you and your guests a chance to be closer to Mother Nature and witness her spring awakening more intimately.

Spring-Inspired Table Decor

From seasonal flowers and fruits to pastel ribbons, butterflies and even a robin’s nest or two, use the different elements of spring to liven up the tables at your event reception.

Fill the Air with Spring

If you’re decorating with spring flowers, your guests will already enjoy the sweet aroma of freshly cut blooms. You can further infuse the air with your favorite spring scent with aromatic candles as well as using linen sprays on your tablecloths just before the guests arrive.

Individual Bouquets and Boutonnieres

Place a token of spring to mark each guest’s place at the table – a small cluster of flowers for the ladies perhaps, or a simple boutonniere for the gentlemen. It’s a simple gesture, but one they will likely notice and appreciate.

Spring Giveaways

A miniature potted plant is an excellent spring-themed giveaway, especially for nuptials. Simply place your name and the wedding date on the pot with a short verse or quote and use them as part of your table decor until it’s time for your guests to take them home.

Wedding Cake Decoration

If it’s a wedding you’re celebrating, consider decorating your wedding cake with fresh flowers. You can use edible flowers (such as nasturtiums or pansies) and wow your guests with your ingeniousness.

Serve Vegetarian Dishes

Though not strictly a decor idea, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the seasonal vegetables that abound during spring in your event menu. Find a caterer that understands and practices the farm-to-table principle and discover freshness with every bite.

Let us provide you with top-quality event furniture, including stylish banquet chairs and sturdy wood folding tables. You can count on us to do everything we can to help make your event successful and truly memorable.
