TIPS & TRICKS
Spring Party Ideas for Adults and Kids
The long, cold months of winter are almost over and the thought of fresh flowers, sunny days, and outdoor adventures have us ready to throw off our heavy coats and celebrate! Welcome spring by throwing a festive party for both young and old family and friends. Read on for our favorite party ideas for adults, plus party themes for kids that help bring the season into full bloom.
Fairy Party Ideas for Kids
Little girls are sure to love a fairy birthday party. You can easily make dainty treats using flower and butterfly cookie cutters to cut out delicate sandwiches, slices of fruit, and snacks like cheese and veggies. Cupcakes and frosted cookies are great desserts, especially when decorated like small mushrooms, flowers, or woodland creatures. Decorate simply with bright bunting and streamers, flowers, and floral plates and utensils. Help your little ones and guests become fairies themselves with crafts to make and decorate their own floral crowns and wings. You can also keep the kids busy with activities like pin the horn on the unicorn, bubble wands, and options to make their own fairy gardens.
Baseball Party Themes for Kids
Batter up! With the end of winter, spring training and baseball games are finally here. Throw a baseball-themed birthday party for all your baseball-loving kids with creative treats and decorations. From a creatively carved watermelon to baseball bat pretzels and rice crispy baseballs there are great treats to keep guests well-fed and happy. Be sure to also serve up some hot dogs and Cracker Jacks for the real stadium game experience. You can also do easy, decorations for utensil holders, lighting, and party favors. And don’t forget to set up a game of wiffle ball to keep the guests entertained and let the fun begin!

Kentucky Derby Party Ideas for Adults
If you're looking for elegant party ideas for adults, get friends together to celebrate the opening of the races. Taste the Southern flavors with delicious bourbon-enhanced savory dishes and desserts and kick back with a classic mint julep. Keep the decorations understated and elegant with fresh flowers—rose and boxwood topiaries lend a particularly derby feel. You can also have guests get involved! Ask your friends to wear their best derby hats, sundresses, and suits for a festive and chic affair. You can even offer prizes for the best hat!
Peter Rabbit Themes for Parties
The Easter season is a great time to throw a children’s party themed after Peter Rabbit. Decorations and treats can all be extra healthy with a clever use of vegetables. Use cabbage and twine for centerpieces that any rabbit would be happy to munch on and use carrots and wildflowers for adorable, edible floral arrangements. You can also make bunny-shaped napkins and carrot utensil sets as well as hang little blue coats to keep Peter hopping around. For non-sweet treats, make vegetable baskets or chicken salad croissants shaped like carrots for a savory snack. When it comes to desserts, we have a garden full of fresh ideas for you. From easy bunny sugar cookies and carrot dirt cake to more involved red velvet radishes or carrot pudding cups, you can festively satisfy every sweet tooth. During the festivities, keep the kids busy with Peter Rabbit coloring pages, bunny-hop races, and adorable photo opportunities.
Picnic Party Ideas for Adults and Kids
Bring kids and adults together to celebrate winter fading and the improving weather. Get outdoors with a picnic-themed celebration. Serve up a range of barbequed and grilled foods from hot dogs and hamburgers to chicken and corn on the cob. Decorate with traditional gingham printed tablecloths and use red and white napkins and utensils, or choose other colors to include with bunting and balloons. Have traditional picnic games and activities like potato sack racing, horseshoes, and ring toss. Prizes and favors can be small picnic baskets filled with sweet treats and candies or six-packs of favorite adult beverages and sets of homemade BBQ rubs for grownups.
No matter how you make the most of your spring celebrations, we hope you enjoy the season with those who matter most. Don’t forget to bring your family and friends out to Welk Resorts’ annual Spring Fling Family Festival for a day of Wonderland adventures!
