Welcome the First Day of Spring

“Spring is nature’s way of saying – Let’s Party”

– Robin Williams

We can’t agree more! At Table Ambiance, it is always about a party, and now you have a perfect excuse to have a ‘Spring Fling’ or ‘Bring on Spring’ party.
Along with the light and bright colors of spring, your menu should be the same, keep it light and fresh. Your menu should include dishes such as a variety of salads, rice dishes with fish or chicken. If the day or evening permits set your table up outside so nature’s sounds can create the audio ambiance of our Spring party. Set your table with tablecloths, placemats and napkins that reflect lots of bright colors. Choose flowers that bloom bright with the welcoming of spring. Daffodils are wonderful for their color and cost. You can purchase them relatively cheap (shop Trader Joe’s) and display them in a variety different shaped vases throughout your table along with small votives candles to create the ultimate ambiance (TIP: To preserve the life of daffodils, cut the stem of your daffodils a bit and hold a lit candle to the bottom on the stem to seal the sap. The best way to buy your daffodils is with almost closed buds; because once they have opened they have a fairly short lifespan). Another spring tablescape idea is to have the symbols of spring displayed on your table. The birds, nests, gardening, and colorful flowers are all associated with Spring.
