Spring Into Summer

Though April showers may come your way, they bring the flowers that bloom in spring! Now it’s time to spring right on into summer!  With Ashlie’s “Smooth Sailing” and “Spring Scents” paintings on the calendar, all I can do is think of beautiful spring weather. This is a great time of year to get together with family and friends. So choose a masterpiece from The Paint Cellar’s calendar and plan a party!

Looking for an easy and refreshing drink for your party? Try Mint Lime Grapefruit Fizz. Combine juice from three limes and one orange, with a teaspoon of lime zest, one tablespoon of fresh mint, and three cups of fizzy grapefruit spritzer. Add ice and some mint leaves for a finishing touch. For an easy to eat treat, take some ice cream sugar cones (the ones shaped like a cone,) and fill them with a mixture of your favorite berries like raspberries and blueberries. It tastes wonderful and you don’t have to wash any bowls or plates!

To help decorate your party, buy some children’s plastic beach buckets at a dollar store. Fill them with dirt and plant annual flowers inside them. This is a quick way to add color and fragrance to your room. Many stores are carrying brightly colored annual flowers that are the perfect size to fit in these buckets, so you can plant them just a day or two before your party. Want something else to put on your table? Cut some flower shapes out of decorative cardstock, and lay them flat on the table. Glue or tape a pastel baking cup to the center of the flower. Fill the baking cup with colorful candy like jelly beans or skittles.
