Lately I have been dreaming of all things spring. I get giddy when I see flowers for sale outside the grocery store. I slow down when I drive past a tree in bloom in our neighborhood. Spring comes early here in Texas, and I am soaking up every sign of it that I can! So when Glade asked me to create a playful party inspired by their new Poppy Groove candle, I knew exactly what I wanted to do - a spring potting party for my girlfriends!
Never heard of a potting party you say? It is a chance to get together and plant a pretty flower arrangement to take home while enjoying some yummy food and conversation and friends - my kind of party! The bright floral scents of the Poppy Groove candle provided the perfect party inspiration. Not only does the candle smell like spring in a jar, its pretty pink color inspired the color palette for the decor and food (like these yummy pomegranate orange spritzers!).
Since the weather has been chilly here lately, I decided play it safe and hold the party indoors by setting up this pretty serving cart from hayneedle.com with all the supplies next to our kitchen table.
To protect our kitchen table, I used a painter's drop cloth that I stenciled in a bold floral pattern (one of my favorite tricks for an inexpensive, custom tablecloth that washes up great!).
I kept food simple but delicious with pomegranate orange spritzers in mason jar glasses, and clementine goat cheese crostini - one of my go-to party foods thanks to a recipe from my sister-in-law!
