Welcome to April! It’s the beginning of the month again, and I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you to set some goals! Also, I love reminding you about all of the upcoming holidays or special events this month that are a great reason to celebrate. Here’s April’s Party Round Up.
April 16th: Easter
The big holiday this month is obviously Easter. There are so many great ways to celebrate. I’ll be showing you lots of Easter inspiration over the next couple of weeks. Including tablescapes, recipes, and crafts. So stay tuned for that!
April 17th: Patriot’s Day
If you’re from the Northeast or live in New England, you know all about this day. However, if you don’t, Patriot’s Day is celebrated in New England to commemorate the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Both were fought near Boston. To celebrate, and maybe educate your family, why not have a New England Clam chowder night and read all about the battles? I think this recipe looks delicious. Putting together a lantern centerpiece is a great way to remember Paul Revere’s ride to warn that the Redcoats were coming. You know, “one if by land, two if by sea.”
April 22nd: Earth Day
I remember Earth Day being kind of a big deal growing up in school. But as I’ve gotten older, it doesn’t seem like it’s celebrated as much. I love these two Earth Day parties and how they really tried to incorporate the ideals of reduce, reuse, and recycle into the party. It’s a great day to do some volunteering and then celebrate with a party!
I love the use of washi tape covered bamboo utensils at this party. And those potted herbs make the perfect centerpiece or party favor.
After looking at this party, I want to go there and play around on the tree house that is the backdrop for this party. So much fun! The use of furniture outside is great, and I love the globes that were used.
April 27th: Take Your Daughter to Work Day
Unfortunately, I never really got to do this when I was growing up because school seemed to be more important. However, I love the idea of celebrating this day with your daughter or son! A few ways I’d recommend celebrating the day:
- A special picture to commemorate the occasion
- Creating a personalized work space for your daughter/son to “work” at while in your office
- Matching outfits, or a more professional outfit for your child
- A special work lunch with coworkers and their children
April 28th: Arbor Day
This day is probably not on many people’s radar, but it’s a great day to help educate your family or teach your children something. There are typically a lot of volunteer opportunities throughout different communities to help plant trees. If that’s not an option for your area another great idea is to go on a nature walk to collect tree branches or sticks and then complete a craft using them. I love the idea of making a hanging picture display like the one below. Pictures could be switched out for your child’s art or inspirational quotes in your work space.
That’s April in a nutshell, I hope you decide to celebrate some of these occasions. If you do be sure to tell me in the comments, or on my Facebook page. I’d love to see how you interpret each holiday. Like I said before, stay tuned the next couple of weeks for a lot of Easter inspiration!
