Having The Best Spring Party

I am ecstatic by the fact that I can count the number of days until spring on one hand! With daylight saving time behind us and the sunset coming later and later it makes me itch to get outside and throw this years first spring party! Below I will go into detail about some great tips I have learned over the years on throwing what some may call the BEST spring party ever!

√ Send Out The Invites

The best way to have a great party is to have great people there, so don’t forget to invite all of your friends and family! Make sure to send out an invitation at least three weeks prior to the party. You don’t want to send them out too early though; it won’t be fun if your friends bury your invite in the old mail pile. IMPORTANT: make sure to put an RSVP on your invite!

√ Esthetics Of The Party

This does not need to be a major concern but a little effort will go a very long way. You can go anywhere from a full out themed spring fling to a casual laid back get together. No matter what you choose some set up would be nice and will not go unnoticed. Lets admit that no one really has a beautiful folding table or plastic chairs so just make sure to set out your seat cushions on the chairs that need it and a simple tablecloth will bring that ugly table up to party status. Put out some citronella candles to keep those pesky mosquitos out of your party and some twinkle lights will create the perfect atmosphere at dusk. If you really want to commit you can even get festive plates, cups and napkins!

√ Timing Is Everything

At an outdoor party stress is the last thing that you want to find there. To make sure there is a casual atmosphere with you and your guests give a window of time for your guests to arrive. A rigid schedule will only bring the dreaded unwanted stress. Set up your party to kick off sometime in the early afternoon around 1pm and mention in your invite for your guests to arrive anytime after one. They will start showing up anywhere from on time to an hour or so later, this way you won’t be bombarded with everyone arriving at once.

√ Don’t Catch Yourself Off Guard

With sending out the invites (of course including the RSVP) you will have a good idea of who is attending. With that prep ahead as much as possible! Nothing is worse than having all of your friends and family around you and you’re running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to get things set up. Plan out your menu well in advance, and get a variety of things that can be prepared ahead of time. A great option for that is the Incredible Party Favorites or the Deli Direct Grand Holiday Happiness. It is important to prep the gilled items ahead of time so that grilling is the only step left to do. Also make sure you have enough charcoal for the day and make sure you heat the grill so its set to go when guests arrive.

√ Lets Not Forget The Meat

It’s not like the four previous points weren’t important, but lets get onto what is really important here. Meat! Barbecuing is a must for me, especially with my opening spring party! My main rule with barbecuing is making easy, quick to cook, and delicious food! Some great options that I find fill my criteria above is the Cookout Trio Gift which includes your chose of any three of; Deli Direct All Beef Wieners, Polish Kielbasa, German Style Cooked White Bratwurst, and the ever delicious Cheddar and Jalapeño Smoked Bratwurst. If you want to branch out with more grilling options a great choice is Grilling Bonanza. This delectable option includes 4 USDA boneless New York Strip Steaks, 4 USDA boneless Pork Chops, Smoked Polish Kielbasa, German Style Sheboygan Brats, Pure Beef Hot Dogs, BBQ Sauce, Southwestern Mustard, and Cutting Board.

√ Last But Definitely Not Least

A great party needs to include some alcohol. You can go two ways on this. On one hand you can provide all of the refreshments from beer to other libations or you can leave this up to your guests. It is a great way to have them contribute to the day and that way they will definitely have what they want. The cost of a party can sneak up on you so I find that option two is the way to go and it has always worked out perfectly. With that being said I always make sure to have a little something to get us going.

It’s important to remember that a party is not a party without some good tunes! Make a playlist of some great songs that will keep your party on the right track!
