Bring Spring into Your Celebration!
No matter how you serve it, this is one party that even your most straitlaced friends will leave with some spring in their step. From Poached Salmon Fillets to dainty Tea Sandwiches to Vanilla Cupcakes, this spring buffet is light and easy.

Short on prep time? You can make the dishes in advance so you'll be ready to host anything from a friend's bridal shower to Mother's Day brunch. Use this handy guide for what to make when.

To get things started, plan on passing around flutes of Champagne (or add peaches to make Peach Bellinis). For nondrinkers, you might also offer a fruity Iced Tea or Lavender Lemonade.
