Spring Entertaining On Your Budget

By Shannon Hanrahan  •  March 09, 2016

The first day of spring is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited for everything that is on the way. But as the days get longer and the air gets warmer, we are starting to get restless sitting inside. Luckily spring is filled with fun holidays, momentous milestones, and new incentives to get out of the house and enjoy the company of family and friends. If winter left you with a little less cash than you’d prefer, don’t panic. We are here to make sure that you have your best spring yet, on the budget that you can afford. Here are a few of our favorite ways to spring into this season:

The next few months bring us some of the best celebrations of the year:

  • Easter (if you celebrate)
  • April Fools Day
  • Mother’s Day
  • Graduation
  • Father’s Day
  • And endless spring birthdays

Cooking in Spring

With all of the holidays and celebrations, food is probably going to be a huge part of your life yet again the next few months. As if that wasn’t already the case all winter long. On the bright side, the options tend to be healthier this time of year, so your beach body doesn’t have to worry too much. Whether you are hosting this year’s Easter brunch or throwing the graduation party to beat all graduation parties, planning out the perfect meal can be time consuming and expensive. Don’t let it overwhelm you. Instead of spending hours at the store, or (god forbid) sending someone else to do your shopping, get all of it done online with Peapod. All you have to do is plan out your menu and then sign onto Peapod.com and place your order. It is super easy and convenient, and you can either pick it up or schedule a Peapod delivery. With a wide variety of options, amazing prices, and an easy way to track spending, you will be left wondering why you haven’t tried it before. They even deliver to businesses, so if your office has been low on those healthy snacks everyone loves, have them set up a delivery! Give it a try with our Peapod coupon for $20 off your first order of $90 or more! Your satisfaction is guaranteed with them, so there is no reason not to try!



Decorating for Spring

Once you have your menus set, it is time to decorate like a champ, without breaking your bank. Even the simplest of decorations can completely change the way your table looks. If buying new table settings is just not in the budget, add a few spring bouquets to the table. They will bring the essence of the spring into your home and will completely brighten up the room. The Bouqs delivers farm fresh flowers right to your doorstep, and they have bouquets to match every mood. So whether you are celebrating life or the beginning of a new journey, you can find flowers to say exactly what you are feelings. Plus, they are not only beautiful, but they also last an incredibly long time, making them worth every penny. We promise you, everyone will be impressed with your taste in flowers. Pair your bouquets with handmade Easter eggs, DIY Graduation light bulb party favors, or themed mason jar drinks to complete the look, all with things you already have at home!

Documenting Your Spring

Last but not least, don’t forget to record all of the awesome memories you are going to make this season. As great as Facebook and Instagram are for storing pictures, make it a little more official with a beautiful Mixbook photo book. Send it as a gift or keep it as a coffee table book, either way you will not be disappointed with your final product. You can even create custom calendars and cards from the photos you take and have them as sweet reminders to use throughout the year. It will be a gift that keeps giving, and we have Mixbook coupons to make it even more affordable for you.

There is no better time than now to come out of hibernation, so get outside, enjoy the sunshine, and start having fun again! It is the perfect time for a fresh start, and we are here to make sure that nothing, not even money, can hold you back from that! Happy springtime everyone!
