Spring Party Hospitality Challenge

from Carrie & crew

Spring is in the air! Crystal's post yesterday really inspired me to find a special way to celebrate the changing of the seasons with my family and so I'm about to pose another hospitality challenge to you.

It's been a little while since I've thrown my own family party (our last being an Alice in Wonderland party which took place almost a year ago! Shameful!!!)

Now, first and foremost, we want to care and tend to those who we are directly responsible to and for: our families. Doing special things and hosting fun events for others is all very well and good and is something we obviously make a point of promoting around these parts. But sometimes? Sometimes you just need to Focus on the Family and so our challenge to you all is to find a way to have a Fun Family Spring Party this month.

Here are the details: The first day of Spring is Sunday, March 20th.

Your mission (should you choose to accept it!) is to find a special way to acknowledge the day either on Sunday itself or thereabouts. You have over a week and a half to come up with a plan!

Then, we invite you to share what you did as a family on your blog or in the comment section which will be open on our link up post which will appear on Monday, March 21st.

PLAN a party (big or small!) for your family. CELEBRATE with those who are closest to you! Write up a blog post and/or come back and leave a comment on Monday, March 21st to share what you did.

Simple or complex, any little thing you do to celebrate with your family will be very much appreciate by them, we are certain, and will go towards making some very pleasant memories with those that you love.

Go forth! Be creative! Have fun! Make the most of it!

Happy Spring!!!


  1. I was already thinking I wanted to do a family activity to welcome spring. It has been a looong winter--we had more snow yesterday!

    We'll be with some extended family next weekend celebrating Natalie's birthday (2!), so it would be fun to include them in our festivities.

    FYI, at the bottom of your post, I think you meant to say "Monday" instead of Sunday.

  2. Yup, I did, so I changed it. THanks!

  3. Thanks for the Challenge Carrie! We'll be doing something, but not totally sure what yet. Thinking about a last day of winter party, since the first day of spring is on a Sunday.

  4. My sweet daughter will be 3 that day, so I will be hosting a flower/butterfly party to celebrate her!
