Celebrate Spring With a Floral Spring Brunch

Winter is nearing its end, and with that comes the glorious spring season. With everything in bloom, floral eye candy is popping up in our gardens and at parks around town. We’ve got flowers on the mind, so today we’ve teamed up with Triscuit to help you welcome the season with spring-themed party ideas chock full of blooms and delicious treats. Floral attire is a must at this shindig, as are a bellini or two :) For the finishing touch, we’ve got three Triscuit appetizers topped with simple ingredients that will keep you coming

back for more. Dare I say we didn’t have any left at the end of our shoot!

This flavor combination will leave an aftertaste you’ll want to keep forever.
Party-Flowers-and-FigIngredients:
– Triscuit crackers
– Brie cheese
– fig jam
– Marcona almonds

We went for goat cheese brie!
Fig-Brie-Almond-Triscuit-RecipeFirst try to cut a wedge of Brie cheese to add to your Triscuit. If your cheese is too gooey, just smear some on top. Then add a touch of fig jam for some sweetness, and finish off with a single marcona almond.
Fig-FirstYou’ll have a spring in your step after you eat a few of these!

Triscuit + Smoked Salmon + Avocado + Lemon Juice

A classic pairing of smoked salmon and avocado tastes light and fresh atop a Triscuit. Douse it with a squeeze of lemon to bring out the flavors.
Salmon-FinalIngredients:
– Triscuit crackers
– smoked salmon
– avocado
do to check on the color. If it’s bright green, your avocado is perfectly ripe.
Salmon-Triscuit-RecipeAdd some smoked salmon to your cracker, then top it with a small slice of avocado. Simply add a few drops of lemon to the top for a citrus kick.
Salmon-Triscuit-FirstFlavor-packed FTW! Triscuit crackers are made for more… and more they get with these amazing toppings. Not a fan of salmon? Not a problem. There are so many topping combinations that taste great with Triscuit. The possibilities are endless!

Floral Centerpiece

Party-Overhead

To amp up our theme, we made a floral centerpiece in pink hues.
Flower-ArrangementPick up some seasonal flowers and greens from a nearby market, some floral foam and a vase. Start out by soaking your foam. Next, add your greens, then your focal flowers and finally your fillers. Check out our Floral Design Class for more tips and tricks.
Final-Flower-ArrangementSo pretty!

DIY Table Weights

Sometimes spring brings breezy weather, so to keep your tablecloth from blowing in the wind, use these DIY table weights.
WashersSimply grab a two-inch diameter washer from a hardware store, then print out our donut printables and tape them on top.

Spring Garland

A floral garland is a must!
Party-SetupFor this DIY, we got large flower pots and filled them with sand. Then we purchased two rods and had them cut to six and a half feet. We added eye hooks to the top, then strung flowers on twine and hung them between the eye hooks. Bury your rods in the sand to hold your garland up over the table. For extra cute points, get mini balloons that spell “spring,” and string them alongside the flowers.
Party-Flower-GarlandServe fairy bread and bellinis for a sweet finish. Your friends will just LOVE this little soirée.
Fairy-BreadWe cut out our fairy bread with flower-shaped cookie cutters to go the extra 

mile.
Party-CheersingCheers to the warmer weather!
