While it may technically still be winter, that doesn’t mean we can’t start getting excited for spring! Along with spring cleaning, it’s important to welcome the season with fun activities that are inspired by fresh blooms and nature’s scents.
Here are a few activities you can start looking forward to:
Are you always incredibly impressed by the stunning arrangements from your local florist? Arranging florals is more complicated than placing stems in a vase. It involves a discerning eye, an understanding of color theory, and a focus on texture. Luckily, you can learn these skills and more with an online workshop. Flower School 101 teaches virtual classes that reveal the secrets behind creating their most stunning arrangements. Fill your Lincoln home with beautiful homemade bouquets or gift one to a friend!
Try a Spring Recipe
It’s no secret that one of the best ways to celebrate a new season is with food. Get into the warm weather spirit by preparing a special dish that sings of spring. For those with a sweet tooth, these lavender Earl Grey cookies hit the spot with floral and buttery flavors. For a more savory dish, try this lemon braised chicken with mint pesto. With bright citrus flavors complemented by herbaceous mint, this meal celebrates the fresh produce of the season.
Host a Picnic
It’s almost picnic season! To celebrate the warm weather, take advantage of the many picnic and barbecue areas in Lincoln communities. With grills already on-site, it will be easy to prepare classic barbecue dishes. For those who prefer dining on a blanket in the grass, this waterproof blanket from Etsy is both cute and easy to transport. If you’re feeling antsy and the weather is not yet suitable for outdoor snacking, treat yourself to an indoor setup. You can lay out a blanket in the living room, make sandwiches, and play nature sounds. This way, you can turn your apartment into your own springtime oasis to get excited for the season.
