Keep scrolling to see our best, budget-friendly ideas for pulling off a springtime soirée.
Floral Bridal Brunch
Food and champagne are a given—it’s a bridal brunch after all! So don’t worry if most of your budget goes toward bottles of bubbly and irresistible eats. You can still incorporate spring blooms into your décor (without the large price tag!) We love the look of a single floral stem display, like this beautiful arrangement featured on Modern Wedding! It’s simple, chic, and you can pull it off with fewer flowers.

Tea Party Baby Shower
Soft colors and delicate decorations, what’s not to love about a tea party baby shower? Plus, we’re excited to have come across yet another repurposing trend, this time with tea cups! You can visit your local thrift shop for inexpensive tea cups that can be beautifully repurposed into pretty candles or precious planters! We also love this welcome display, featured in Style Me Pretty.

Sometimes it’s the simplest of detailing that makes the brightest statement, like this lovely ribbon work, featured in Rock n Roll Bride. Because ribbon comes in all widths, hues, and patterns, it’s the perfect way to accentuate a color palette or party theme in a fun, playful way.

While celebrating something as special as an engagement is exciting and fun, parties like this tend to get expensive. Don’t worry if most of your budget needs to be spent on hors d’oeuvres and champagne, that’s all part of the fun! You can still incorporate simple décor that makes a statement, like these simple DIY balloon centerpieces featured on The House That Lars Built. It’s an easy way to ensure a celebratory pop of color!

What’s not to love about Easter? The morning typically starts with brunch classics—like honey glazed ham and warm, fluffy rolls—and ends with an afternoon Easter egg hunt.
