Fall Inspired Vintage Back to School Celebration

With the start of a new school year, a great way to get the kids excited for their new classes, teachers & of course, back to school shopping, is to throw a little surprise party for them! Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties and Candace Miller from Lillypaul Designs get an A+ for their cleverly styled Fall-Inspired Vintage Back to School Celebration! I love the old schoolhouse in the background & the school subject inspired dessert table sections (especially the ‘cafeteria’ lunches). Parents everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief that summer “boredom” is now over ;).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– School themed joke cards & encouraging words for school lunches + ‘explore’ & ‘learn’ themed party flags
– A world map dessert table backdrop + metallic globe cookies & vintage globe decor
– Number 2 pencil candy skewers, addition & subtraction flashcard cookies & ‘molecule’ sixlet test tubes
– Vintage books, red apples, wooden crates & rag tie bunting + a vintage school desk bench

{New Series} Parties in a Pinch: First Birthday

{Quick Note from HWTM} We are thrilled to have Rachel Scott from RV Parties here today as our newest guest contributor, kicking off an exciting new series — Parties in a Pinch! It’s easy to feel a lot of pressure to put together a Pinterest-perfect event and then become overwhelmed by the planning process. Rachel’s advice will equip you with some tips and tricks to help you pull off a special, memorable party — in a pinch! Take it away, Rachel…

*****

One of my favorite sayings is: It can be good, cheap or fast, but it can’t be all three. This can definitely be applied to party planning!

This series will highlight how to throw a party that’s GOOD and either fast or cheap. (If you figure out how to throw party that’s all 3 — let me know!) First up? A good party that’s FAST. (For the sake of this post, we’re going to assume that a good party is one that has a bit of the wow-factor and makes the guest of honor feel celebrated.)

{New Series} Parties in a Pinch: First Birthday

My baby turned one a few days after we moved cross country. As a party planner, I couldn’t bear to miss the chance to celebrate him, but our house was in shambles and there wasn’t time to put together a huge bash like I normally would. The most important thing? Celebrating this sweet boy and a full year with him. And the other most important thing — getting a few pictures so that he’ll know he’s loved when he’s big enough to care!

Make sure to read below for some tips on how you too can put together a fast, memorable party.

So when a Dutch friend of hers wanted to include Miffy in her son’s first […]

This Up, Up and Away Hot Air Balloon Birthday will make you feel like you’re floating among the clouds! Bruna Sanches, the amazing photographer of Simply Lace Photography, had this theme picked out months before her son’s first birthday, so with all that planning time, it’s no wonder this party turned out beautifully!
