Back to School Party (22 photos)
There is no better way to end the summer than with a Back to School party! So to get everyone back in the school spirit we decided to have a party full of snacks and fun for Emma and her friends. I can't believe they are all off to kindergarten this year!
Party On! Designs created the cutest set of printables incorporating chalkboards, apples and the ABCs into her designs. We used a huge chalkboard in our playroom as the centerpiece of the party! The kids thought is was fun to pretend they were actually in school!
I found little galvanized tins in the dollar section of Target that mini chalkboard plaques on them. I filled them with pencils, chalk and rulers and placed them on the ledge of the chalkboard.
For snacks, we filled brown lunch bags with juice boxes (I covered with paper designed by Party On! Designs), applesauce and goldfish and Stephanie J's Creations made the most adorable school shaped cookies. Those were the first thing the kids ate! At a kid sized table, I used composition books as placemats and filled a berry basket with apples to use as a fun centerpiece.
For a fun treat, I (Michele of Sweet Threads Clothing Co) made all the kids back to school themed shirts they can wear on the first day of school. I even found fabric that was printed to look like lined notebook paper! Birdie Baby Boutique sent hair accessories for the girls. The kids loved posing with the "first day of kindergarten" sign that Party On! Designs created.
At the end of the party, everyone got their very own personalized pencil box sent over from I Have A Favor. I filled it with school supplies such as crayons, pencils and a glue stick. The kids had a blast and it was a great way to get them even more excited to start a new school year!
