After the long months of winter make their exit I'm ready to celebrate. Not being a winter person, I whine and complain every year to whoever will listen about how terrible January, February and March are and how I can't wait for April to poke it's pretty little head into my life.
Birds chirping, new green leaves sprouting and comfortable temps - I'm happy again! Spring is my favorite season. It's just gives me so much to smile about.
While there will be plenty of celebrating the spring season with picnics, day trips and simply reading a good book in the sunlight, I'm planning a cocktail party at my place for a few friends for the actual Spring Equinox on March 20th.
Lately, there have been some pretty awesome cocktail recipes and DIY party ideas shared here, on Celebrations, and I've rounded up a few of my favorites for the spring cocktail party I'm planning to throw.

Though it bears the same name as a certain Hendrix song I like, this spring drink is actually called Purple Haze for it's color and the haze you'll probably find yourself in if you drink too many. Aside from it's dangerously delicious flavor I can't get over how much better it gets when served in a mason jar. Read More
Whenever I host cocktail parties I try to get at least 3 signature drinks on the menu. I want them to stand on their own, but it's also helpful if they're companionable enough to ensure an easy sip transition from one to the other. This is another Spring fruit drink recipe and it pairs well with the Purple Haze. Granted, the recipe isn't alcoholic, but nothing a bit of vodka can't cure! Read More
Because it's a cocktail party and no party of mine is complete without dessert, I'm opting to make and serve this boozy popsicles for a sweet and spiked ending to my celebration. I know mojitos are big during the summer, but seriously, after such a stretch of NOT drinking one, I'm starting early. Read More
At cocktail parties I skip the heavy menu and opt for an assortment of appetizers. One easy way I dress up food is with printable toppers, like these. The colors are pretty perfect for spring, too! Read More
We may be celebrating spring at this party, but the big star of the gathering are the cocktails. I've got a few older wooden cutting boards at home I plan to repurpose with this easy how-to. Colored chalk in coordinating shades to my toppers will tie food and drink displays in nicely! Read More
