Spring Break is officially just around the corner, and by this we mean it’s quickly approaching in the next few weeks and days for some, yikes! It’s a time for a little rest and relaxation if you’re lucky enough to have a few days off and if you’re not then you can pretend you are relaxing on the beaches of Mexico. As for us moms, spring break usually brings a little more chaos with school being out, but who doesn’t love a little a chaos every now and then to stir things up, especially when the chaos involves our kids!

Since we don’t have any fabulous Spring Break plans or destinations to visit, we thought why not try and make the most of it? With this in mind we wanted to bring the feeling of being on vacation to our homes and the only way we saw fitting was with a tabletop that oozes the feeling of spring break. Our main interest is to keep it easy breezy! Whether you are planning a pool party, Mexican fiesta, or a dinner outside we have you covered. Here is how we would put together tablescapes for these parties.
We love the idea of doing a Spring Break party theme based on destinations. Our favorites: Mexico, Miami, and the Bahamas.
When we think Mexico, we think of vibrant colors and warm sand under our feet. Our ideal table features our cross-back farm chairs and Mayflower farm table along with our Vintage Classic and Parisian Carnival Glassware. As a whole, it makes you feel like you are in Mexico even when you may be in your own backyard. Viva la Mexico!

HOT MIAMI NIGHTS
No other color seems to perfectly fit a Miami themed party other than white. The concept is so crisp and can easily translate to any table. One of our favorites items here at P.O.S.H. Couture Rentals are our ghost chairs, these are the perfect accent to an all white table. As far as the tabletop design goes, keep it simple, we suggest keeping the idea of modern and elegant in mind.

We are currently picturing the crystal clear blue water, ahh…paradise! You really could do just about anything with this concept. From beach themed to under the sea, if only we could bring all that beautiful sand to us, think beach chic. Our picks include our round rattan charger accompanied by blue and white china collection and blue-green swirl stem glassware. The blue hues really round out the look and give you the beachy theme!
BARBEQUE BY THE POOL
While thinking about travel for Spring Break and beautiful warm destinations is fun, sometimes it’s nice just to focus on the things you have at home and create a casual, fun environment in your backyard, usually in the form of a pool party or barbeque.
When planning a pool party or barbeque, there are certain go-to items that seem to always make it on the list. In terms of serving pieces, these items usually are paper plates and plastic silverware, simply because of their ease and the easy clean-up. Plain and simple, this idea is realistic, but we don’t love how plain it all seems and how wasteful these products are. Our solution is to purchase eco-friendly products, Party City has a great variety in all different colors and designs, and incorporate a rattan or acrylic charger from P.O.S.H. to provide stability and something special. It’s an easy way to incorporate something different than just regular old paper products.
