Spring Party Ideas on Popular Crafts Magazine

| Nancy's Parties, Party Planning

I’m excited to share these new Spring party ideas!

Thank you to Popular Crafts magazine for the amazing feature in their March issue.

These ideas are super simple and affordable. I didn’t use any printables. You can find a cute spring invite on I decided to go with a yellow and green color scheme. I love these fun, bright colors for Spring!

TIP: go around your house and gather all your Spring decorations before setting up your table.


Believe it or not, several pieces on this table are from garage sales, Goodwill and the Dollar Tree.

Yellow dish where you see fruit skewers – garage sale $1

Mason jars – Goodwill $4

Yellow favor boxes – Dollar Tree $1

Yellow flower pot – garage sale $.50 cents

Glass jars at each end with flower decor – garage sale $1 each.



Green paper straws from Cakes And Kids Too‘s Etsy shop.


The adorable cupcake stands are from Cupcake Stand

Cupcakes from Buttercream Bling




I thought it’d be great to show you how you can take this table, change a few things and you have another set up for a baby shower.

Theme: It’s a Girl, Daisy! 

I changed the banner and table runner…..that’s it!






The backdrop on the wall is scrapbook paper. Each sheet is 12X12. If you buy the sheets when they are on sale, you can get 4 for $1.

I made the banners, ribbon garland and table runners. You can purchase all of them in my shop, A to Zebra Celebrations.

What do you think?  What’s your favorite detail?
