Junie B. Jones makes my girls -- and all their friends -- laugh out loud. So I knew a Junie B. theme was the perfect choice for a back to school bash.

You can create my party for back to school or a birthday with my PARTY PLAN or PARTY KIT.

PRINTABLES
Since so many of Junie B.’s adventures are set at school, I decided to create a school day in Room One for our guests. Black boards and primary colors and polka dots, oh my!

I immediately thought of Catherine from Serendipity Soiree for creating a Junie B.-inspired illustration and printables collection. I adore how she incorporated black boards and the checkerboard book border! (Visit Catherine’s shop to find the printables.)

DECORATIONS
I turned my dining room mirror into a black board using fadeless bulletin board paper and polka dot borders. The idea of the Junie B illustration was for it to look like it had been drawn on the black board. I added two of Junie B.’s favorite friends, Phillip Johnny Bob and Raggedy Ruth, to the dessert table.

Throughout the party, I added stacks and stacks of Junie B. books.

DESSERT TABLE
On the dessert table, I used school locker-style drawers to display cake pops from Cake Pop Fusion. The pops are made to look like little ABC, 123 books — and they were so good! (The little straw flags with Junie B.’s favorite exclamations are from Serendipity Soiree.)

The monogram cookies are from CookieXchange, because Junie loves her B.

Peep cupcakes were inspired by Junie B. Jones Has a Peep in Her Pocket with fondant “peeps” by Scrumdiddlyumptious Bakery.

Our birthday cake was Junie B’s favorite chocolate cake with white icing and strawberry ice cream. I love dressing up a simple cake with an amazing fondant topper from Brittany at Edible Details. Her little first grader is holding an elephant like Phillip Johnny Bob, Junie B.’s stuffed friend.

TABLE SETTINGS
On the dining room table, I dressed each place setting with a cafeteria style tray, plus lunch in a yellow paper sack, closed with the yellow paper clip. Utensils and napkins were stored in pencil cases. At each place was a nameplate with the guest’s first name and middle initial.

Each place also had a “first grade journal,” which was a great filler activity during the party.

ACTIVITIES
Our crafts and activities followed a typical school day.

- Art: Decorate your own party hat
- Health: Guests read an eye chart and received hand-painted purple glasses, just like Junie B. in Junie B. Jones, First Grader (At Last!)
- Reading: Quiz of Junie B. trivia
- Specials: Picture day like in Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed. We were sure to take pictures when the girls “weren’t ready” – just like Junie B.
- Recess: jump rope, homemade sidewalk chalk paint, hopscotch, four square, punch balls
- Math: guess the number of gumballs

PARTY FAVORS
At the end of the party, we handed out report cards that I designed in library card pockets.

The girls went home with party favors: a Junie B. Jones book with a bookplate designed by Serendipity Soiree, packaged in brown paper lunch sacks, topped with a thank you tag and red-painted clothespin.
