A Spring Soiree🌸

“We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are”

– Max Depree

Hello, sweet friend…

I hope you are well…

Spring is a wonderful time of year to host a gathering with friends…the weather is warming up…flowers are in bloom…and everyone is ready to go outside and enjoy the sunshine. However, spring weather can also be unpredictable… that being said let me share about how I recently hosted a small gathering inside.

A few easy tips…

1. Plan your venue…(outside/inside)

2. Create a guest list…

3. Menu: a spring soiree calls for light, fresh, and colorful food options.

4. Decorate your Space: Springtime is all about bright colors and fresh blooms…use pastel colors, floral patterns, and fresh flowers to create a festive atmosphere.

5. Most importantly enjoy this fun memorable experience of celebrating the season.

Serving a variety of sandwiches is a wonderful way to feed your guests. This easy crab salad recipe is always a favorite.

Crab Salad Sandwich


  • ▢ 1 pound imitation crab , krab meat
  • ▢ 1 shallot , minced (you can use red onion if you need)
