Congratulations—you made it through winter! With each warmer day, we take a barelegged step closer to cherry blossom-lined streets, colorful foods, and crisp drinks to complement. What better way to celebrate spring’s arrival than by throwing a luncheon to welcome new beginnings?
First, set the date. Whether you're planning a last-minute Easter brunch, inviting the entire family over for a Passover Seder, or just arranging a gathering to enjoy the sunny days ahead, our InStyle x Paperless Post shop features e-cards and paper designs to match any occasion.
Next, set the scene. We recommend giving your table a sentimental touch by personalizing small vases with chic tags as place cards and choosing a serene color scheme (think pale pink). Try adorning your cocktail of choice with cherrywood stirrers.
At last, set the menu. In our April issue, now available on newsstands and for digital download, food-blogging sisters Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley of Hemsley + Hemsley share some mouthwatering ideas for a light spring lunch. Their Supercharged Spinach Soup blends deep flavors and exquisite greens, while a simply prepared roasted salmon is served with an easy-to-prepare miso sauce.
