I think it’s safe to say that spring has officially sprung. One of my absolute favorite parts of spring is the colors. Trees burst with new leaves, the grass changes from brown to green, and flowers sprout up from the ground. It’s such a magical time. This change of seasons also means that more fresh fruits and berries are becoming available. I couldn’t be more ready for a handful of fresh blackberries or a slice of juicy watermelon. So today, I’m celebrating both the delicious return of gorgeous fruits as well as the colors of spring!
First things first .. fruit. Having a bit of a sweet tooth, I collected some of the best fruit-inspired desserts from the BHG archives. These recipes will certainly have you running to the kitchen to start baking. I mean, who doesn’t want a fabulous dessert that’s just right for the season. I’ll take two. Who am I kidding, give me a slice of each.

Secondly, I have fallen in love with many great new spring products for entertaining. This year, pastels are a thing of the past, as bold and energetic colors take center stage! From glassware to dishtowels, it seems that brighter truly is better. I’ve pulled some of my favorite new entertaining accessories to spark your creativity. So grab some fresh fruit, get in the kitchen, and take a moment to welcome this colorful time of year!
