Springtime has arrived and spring is a wonderful thing. Here at Gold Leaf we’re excited, actually, straight giddy for the new season. Spring is without a doubt the most visually expressive time of year. So, with that in mind, shed off some layers, put on some brighter ones, and let’s have a bit of fun.
Here are some of our favorites this spring:
Mint Marvel: Freshen up with a mint, white rum concoction: the classic mojito. Keep the libation simple with the basic ingredients or give it a spring theme by adding strawberries and basil leaves.
Pink Madness: Just embrace the pink. We know we are! March, April, and May are the perfect months to wake up and smell the hydrangeas and roses. This season, we recommend putting these flowers in a cascade bouquet for a group of beautiful bridesmaids or a lavish table scape.
Botanical Settings: Nothing looks more breathtaking centered on a table then orchids in water. Surround the flowers with candles or extra lighting underneath for a special glow. Plus, radiant orchid is the color of the year and one of the prettiest tones this flower comes in.
Citrus Treat: A lemon cake tastes like spring and has the look to match it. This is one of our favorite desserts that brightens up any party and satisfies all sour and sweet cravings. It’s the perfect indulgence for the next bridal or baby shower you attend.
For the boys: This is no time to shy away from pastels, guys. An attractive, orange boutonniere like this one goes superbly against a black or dark grey suit.
