Back to School Party Ideas

Many many moons ago I was an elementary school teacher, and loved it! I actually never imagined myself NOT being a teacher. But my husband’s job transferred us to Arizona from California during the height of the recession, and trying to get a teaching job was nearly impossible. It seems it was all Gods plan, because now I get to be home with my little man, and I am counting the days down until I can be room mom when he starts school. In any case, school and kiddos hold a special place in my heart.

I can still remember how excited, nervous, and happy I would get as a kid before the first day of school. As I am sure many kids feel this same way, why not ease those back to school jitters with a party?! Whether you throw a party for just your kids, your kids and their friends, or their whole class, here’s some party inspiration for you! Even if it’s only a special first day breakfast, a back to school party is sure to be a hit! Check out these Back to School Party Ideas…

I love this pencil and rubber band cake from One Charming Party!
