We never need a reason to host a party at HOMETAINMENT (it is our thing after all) but if we did then spring being on the horizon is definitely a worthy cause. The warmer temperatures, new beginnings and lighter evenings means we’re coming out of our winter cocoons ready for alfresco entertaining, dinner parties with seasonal spring menus and a new focus after the winter months.
Throughout the spring months there is a glut of fresh produce in season from cauliflower, kale and tarragon through to asparagus, new potatoes and rhubarb. All of which make for some pretty delicious recipes. How about lemon, thyme and olive oil poached cod loin with charred spring greens, cauliflower puree and a lemon thyme oil? Or smoked duck breast with a cherry compote, tarragon powder and balsamic caviar followed by a rhubarb and ginger panna cotta?
If cooking isn’t your forte, but hosting (and eating!)is, then HOMEtainer Edward’s Premium 6-Course Spring Tasting Menu is just the ticket. All you have to do is book the experience, invite your friends and let Michelin trained private chef Edward and his talented team of waiters, assistant chefs and sommeliers look after you.
After other spring menus? Try a Premium 3 Course British Spring Menu or if it’s canapes you’re after then you have to check out HOMEtainer Mimi’s Luxury Seasonal Canapes.
Yes barbecues might be associated more with summer, but as we all know British summer weather is a hard one to predict, one minute it’s raining, the next glorious sunshine. So we’re getting ahead of the game and with the weather starting to warm up, we’re going to be hosting our first BBQs on those sunny spring afternoons.
Expert barbecuer, HOMEtainer Elliot, has an absolutely epic BBQ feast filled with dishes from around the world for you and your guests to get stuck into. We’re talking Kentucky pulled lamb shoulder, Korean chicken wings, 10 hour smoked and steamed New York Pastrami and Texan Pulled Beef Chilli. As for sides, there’s roasted cauliflower salad with pomegranate and tahini dressing, BBQ corn on the cob with smoked paprika butter and grilled broccoli with rose harissa, pickled onion and toasted almonds.

When it comes to parties if you want to really take them to the next level then it’s time to book your own bartender. Picture this, rather than your being stuck in your kitchen mixing up everyone’s cocktails, your guests are being served their favourite drinks and spring inspired serves by a talented mixologist. Sounds pretty good, right?
Our expert HOMEtainers can mix up the classics as well as bespoke creations or new favourites. Looking for some inspiration? Then check out these spring inspired cocktails.

Ready to spring clean your closet but don’t quite know where to start? Rather than just closing the doors and hoping by some small miracle it will have magically sorted itself out when you open them again, get in the experts. Our HOMEtainers can help you sustainably detox your wardrobe so that by the end of the session you only have pieces that you really love and will wear. Everything else will be sold or donated so you can help reduce fashion waste and get your closet in order.

We’re ready for our HOMEs to be filled with seasonal blooms - there’s nothing like a bunch of daffodils to cheer up your kitchen. This spring though we’re calling in HOMEtainer Shilpa to teach us how to fill our HOMEs with beautiful bouquets of flowers and, importantly, how to make them last.
This flower arranging class is for up to 30 guests so it’s ideal if you’re planning a hen-do in spring or birthday party!
Spring is a time of new beginnings. From the lambs in the fields, to the leaves turning green on the trees. Make it a time of new beginnings for you too with a Transformational Breathwork workshop. Hosted by HOMEtainer Aimée, the class will help you to release energy that has been locked up and stored in the body from past traumas and challenges. The result is greater energy, clarity, peace, joy and physiological balance.
