Spring Wreath Centerpiece- side view-lizbushong.comIt’s finally time to Celebrate Spring!  As a result of wintery snow and rain, tiny cherry blossoms with new leaves appear and the glories of spring unfold before our eyes.

Hence, singing birds busily build their nests and new life begins with the budding sentiment of the season, and hosting an outdoor luncheon for your garden club or special friends is a fun way to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Balance fun and formality with a nature inspired location and table setting to ensure every guest has a lovely view of God’s seasonal showcase. A table setting under a blooming tree or a garden bed full of blooming flowers would make a lovely venue for a spring luncheon.

Plaid & Patterns Make a Great Spring Mix

A plaid tablecloth enlivens the table-scape with bright cheery colors. Shades of pink, lavender, light green, purple, and yellow blend together and make a beautiful back ground for the blooming rose napkins at each place setting.

Each setting features a crackled charger with the classic white dinner plate and dessert plate with a small cup holding a rose folded napkin. Pink, dark pink and yellow rose napkins are positioned on the plates in small bowls that are reminiscent of a bed of blooming roses. ( Click on link for DIY Rose Napkin Fold)

As a mother bird gathers twigs and leaves for her nest we have gathered a lovely grapevine wreath with twigs and berries for our table centerpiece. Faux woven nests with momma bird hovering over her speckled eggs will draw your guests to the table as they listen for the sounds of baby birds singing their hunger songs. Beside the centerpiece are two tall bunny candlesticks with striped candles. The pink and white striped candles inspired the mini cheesecake dessert.

Celebrate Spring with a No- Bake Dessert 

Just one bite of this creamy mini cheesecake is sure to put a spring in your step, maybe even a hop and a jump!  The no-bake cheesecakes are easy to make and layer in jumbo silicone muffin pans. The pan makes perfectly round and easy to remove cheesecakes, just pack with graham cracker crumbs and filling, and then freeze solid. When ready to serve, pop them out of the mold and decorate with fresh whipped cream and berries. To mimic the table color scheme, electric pink, soft pink and white food coloring gel and unflavored gelatin were added to the cheesecake filling.  As a result, the gelatin adds much needed stability to the mini cheesecakes.
