spring party ideasIf you’re hosting a party or shower this spring, the Spring Parties Ideas gallery on marthastewart.com is full of inspiration! I especially love the idea of the butterflies on the paper lanterns (pictured above), and would love to try a super contemporary approach to this idea: maybe all-white butterflies on vividly colored lanterns like fuschia, bright orange, and lime, or vice versa – vibrant butterflies on white lanterns. Click here to check out the ideas gallery!
