The time has come, when vacations are ending and camps are over. The excitement from summer is being redirected back to school! Going back to school brings a mixture of emotions, from the excitement of seeing friends and the newness of the school year, to the fear of getting back into the swing of things. Year after year, preparing for class is always a fun activity for families to get excited for the upcoming school year. From backpacks to school supplies there is no shortage of back to school gear. Pottery Barn Kids teamed up with Beijos Events to throw a celebration for the beginning of the school year.
Going back to school is exciting for your kids, it is another stepping stone in your child’s life that should be celebrated! Beijos Events put a fun spin on a back to school party, taking it old school style. What better way to celebrate a new school year than a party?
As the kids arrived, they were greeted by an old school chalk board to add more personal touches. The tables were absolutely picture perfect. Each child could find their spot at the table on an apple with their names beautifully printed on them.
Our White Cambria tabletop plate and bowl created a playful yet simple look along with the apple place mats and our Primary Dot utensils. Creating an inviting tabletop, makes it fun for the kids and more approachable. Additionally, each place setting had a notebook and pencil to garner more school spirit, and who doesn’t love new school supplies? Our tabletop items can add a fun touch to any party.
The kids geared up for school with a range of prints from our backpack and lunchbox collections. Our variety of gear allows any kid to choose their style based on their personality. There are a range of styles for each line that allows you to customize the fit based on your kid’s needs and style. If your kids are required to wear a uniform, our gear is a great way to show off their personality. From unicorns to solar systems to glitter, there are plenty of options to choose from! Each item can be personalized with your child’s name, so it does not get lost in the sea of backpacks in the classroom. Do not be afraid to have fun with it!
A party is not complete without school-themed desserts. Let’s face it, what kid doesn’t have a sweet tooth? From apple macaroons to a chalkboard themed cake, there is no shortage of mouth watering sweets. If you are throwing your own back to school party, get the kids involved and let them help prepare desserts for their friends. You can never have too much of a good thing. Now it’s time to grab your friends and throw a celebration to kick off your year in style!
