I am so excited for spring. For the past few weeks I haven’t been able to resist buying flowers whenever I’m at the store. I’m sure I can blame it on the anticipation of spring almost being here.

Spring Cupcakes

In honor of spring, add a little floral spring to your cupcakes! Paper flowers are always popular, but let’s try something different today. Let’s make some adorable little spring flower cupcakes out of silk flowers. These little flower toppers would be perfect for a spring shower, brunch, or even an early summer picnic.

You Will Need: small silk flowers, mod podge, tooth picks, scissors

Directions: First, cut the flower off the stem near the top. Dip the tooth pick into the mod podge. Stick the tooth pick into the bottom of the silk flower. Let the glue dry. Once it is dry, top your cupcakes with a small garden of flowers.

Enjoy the beautiful spring weather by going on a picnic! Pack an adorable lunch with these fun downloadable lunch labels and spring picnic ideas.

For a special dessert, a sweet and easy strawberry shortcake in a jar is a perfect way to go!

For each dessert you will need:
8 oz. Mason Jar
1 vanilla pudding cup
angel food cake

Layer your shortcake in the jar. Start with the angel food cake, next add half of the pudding and top with strawberries. Repeat the layers again to fill up your jar. Put the lid on your jar and top with a cupcake liner, twine and the 2″ circle label for some added cuteness.

Pinwheels are such a fun site for spring! Add a little pinwheel fun in your life by making this adorable pinwheel matching game with your child.

You will need:
5 sets of 2 matching 4″x4″ square pieces of scrapbook patterned paper
10 4″x4″ square pieces of solid color paper
paper straws

Glue the back sides of the patterned scrapbook paper and the solid color paper together. All of the pinwheels need to have the same color back. Then, cut 1 1/2 inches in at the corners in a diagonal. Fold in the corners to form a pinwheel. Repeat this step with all 10 4″x4″ squares. Glue the paper straws on to the back of the pinwheels.

To play, flip all of the pinwheels over and take turns picking up pinwheels to find the matching patterns. The person, in the end, with the most matching pinwheel sets wins. It’s a fun and easy twist on an old loved game! A perfect activity to bring along to any spring time outing or picnic.

As your Spring Party winds down, let guests write birthday messages on the sidewalk with chalk. And don’t forget a take home favor. These sweet little lollipops are wrapped in small squares of fabric in different patterns and tied with bakers twine. Perfect for handing out to guests as they leave.

A great tip for your next party: keep parties small in number. Match the age of the birthday child with the number of guests–for a 6th birthday invite 6 friends. This allows your party to be rich in detail without breaking the bank.
