Wow! Is it really time for another school year? Is my firstborn really in 7th grade? Is summer really over?
All true!! In keeping with our family tradition, we had our usual “Back 2 School” Breakfast to celebrate or mourn (depending on personal perspective)!
The Table – I use my zebra print napkins with any bright colors – it kind of ties in the chalkboard, too. The flowers were a mixture that I have collected from different parties over the years. The pencils – a collection that I recently gathered while cleaning out drawers, closets, backpacks, purses, etc. Elle could even identify some of them from specific years, like the one given to her by her 3rd grade teacher – a little unexpected stroll down memory lane! I secured the pencils around a glass vase with a rubber band and tied with a ribbon – that’s all!
The Spread – it really wasn’t much of a spread at all – just chocolate chip muffins and assorted fruit. The muffins were yummy! HERE is the recipe!
The Banner – very simple to make – I just cut the flags from a pattern I made on Microsoft Word, wrote the letters in chalk, punched 2 holes in each flag and ran twine through each one before tying to my buffet lamps! HERE is the pattern!
The Note – each daughter has a composition notebook at their place with a personal message from me……just expressing how proud I am of them and all they have accomplished and how much I believe in them and will be supporting them this year! Praying for an awesome year for both girls!
To everyone starting back to school, at all levels, as student or teacher, may you be blessed with your best ever!
