Back 2 School Party

The kiddos started back to school here in Phoenix already. Wow, crazy fast summer....I was planning on having a monthly dive in movie party this summer. It's now the middle of August so it's very unlikely that I will have one at all! LOL Here is a too cute back to school party from Staci at Lizard & Ladybug. Loving how she used her kid's little people school bus to hold the snacks. I always look around the house to see things that I can use that I already own for parties. You will be amazed what you already have that can work in your theme with a little bit of creativity!
Simple and really cute centerpiece. You can buy flash cards, crayons and glass bowl all at Dollar Tree ~so economical as well.

I have those polka dot containers found them at Big Lots for $3. Staci used them as cupcake stands. The cupcake wrappers and labels came from Paper Glitter.
I love the "School Lunch" trays from Dollar Tree.

I LOVE the apple cars. My fellow party planning mommy extraordinaire Dawn from Not Just A Mommy is the genius behind these. BTW, do yourself a favor and check out her blog. It is wonderful and she has some really great original DIY ideas!!

I featured these babies before....can use these crayon pretzels for so many different themes.
Thanks so much Staci for sharing your kid's back to school party with us! For many more pics check out Staci's blog!


  1. Thank you so much for sharing my party!! It so made my day!

  2. Thanks for the shout-out! She did such a fab job; our party is next week and a few of her ideas are going to be shamelessly borrowed, and maybe a few of yours...

  3. We never had cute parties like this when I was a kid!

  4. great party! We are in AZ too and the kids are on their 2nd week of school.

  5. What are crayon pretzels? Can you please elaborate?

    they are small pretzel rods dipped in melted white chocolate chips colored w/food coloring. I found the labels online and printed on colored card stock.
    Everyone seemed to really like them :)
