It’s already August and a new school year is just a few weeks away. Getting the kiddies geared up and excited about going back to school can be an tough task. One thing is for certain, kids LOVE to celebrate! What better way to get ready for September than hosting a ” Happy School Year” party? I’ve found some great inspiration to get you started!
Let’s start with the main table or “focal table scape” . To create a classic school room feel, hang black fabric as a backdrop or “chalkboard” and paint wooden letters in primary colors to display your greeting.
The Details :
Crayon printed fabric for table cloth
Classic + Simple snacks such as apple sauce, potato chips and Goldfish served
This wall hanging is an easy+fun DIY decor project for your party:
Lately I have been loving mash up designs like this one. The mix of tissue paper, round lanterns and vintage book paper fanned out will create excitement to any room! Attach words that will motivate your kids before the school year starts.
Every kid (big and small) loves cookies and cupcakes! How yummy are these sugar coated apple cupcakes? Give your guests gold stars (cookies) to start the year with an A+ .
Home Depot and Lowe’s now carry chalk board paint that can be used to create an authentic chalkboard backdrop for your focal table scape. Red apples are also great to add in for a “Happy School Year” party!

Toffee covered green apples on wooden pencils for sticks
Paper bag lunches
Stacked school books wrapped in brown paper used for cake stand
Milk served in classic glass milk bottles
Apple cake pops and cupcakes
School supplies are the perfect favors for your guests. Parents will appreciate the help with getting a jump starting on school supply shopping and the kids will enjoy the fun lunch box packaging .
Printables are always come in handy for personalizing decor, food labels and even invitations! Here is a FREE “Back To School” printables download from Tweedle Dee Designs.
With all this fun, what kid wouldn’t be excited about a new school year? What do you have planned to get your kids geared up?
