Hello Spring!

From the desk of: Carrie Dirats

While it hasn’t seemed like it over the last couple of weeks (yikes!), spring is actually HERE. I don’t know about you, but I always feel a sense of excitement as the days lengthen and the world wakes up. To help you through the next Nor’easter, here are two of my favorite spring things:

Pretty flowers: Okay, so they aren’t really coming up yet. But there’s no reason why we can’t bring them into our homes, offices, and especially into our events. The soft colors and gentle scents of our earliest blooms are a real mood lifter:

If you worry about the waste of cut flowers, your favorite spring bulbs can be forced and used as centerpieces, while dormant bulbs make a nice “living” take away…

Fresh Spring Veggies:  After a long winter of manky old storage vegetables, who doesn’t love the bright flavors and colors of asparagus, peas, pea tendrils, baby beets, scallions, new carrots, radishes, spinach, lettuce, arugula, fiddlehead ferns, and spring herbs?  These should all be appearing in local farmers’ markets, or your garden, in the next month or two!

You can even include them in your table décor…

Cheers to Spring, whenever it decides to arrive!


Food Fun!

In the world of events, there are many important pieces that tie together to make the experience memorable. This blog is about one of my favorites…whether it’s a wedding, fundraiser, conference…there must be food!  If guests are hungry and find themselves searching for nibbles, I can almost guarantee those guests will become HANGRY – and that’s not what we’re after.

Here are a few fun ideas to get guests excited:

Donuts are a personal favorite – I can never resist!

Cheese please!

Fries are the perfect late night snack!

Don’t forget about drinks too!

Or perhaps a rainbow of colors for the health conscious?

And remember to keep guests warm in the winter season!

All good things must come to an end…at least there is always dessert to look forward to at the end!
