back to school partayIt’s time for the little ones to go back to school and I assume some parents are jumping for joy. (Editor’s note: that is very much correct.) Getting back into a routine can be a daunting task, especially for kids, so let’s start it off with a party! There are so many great ideas out there to make it extra special and extra handmade. Here are my favorite party ideas!

These are like a necessity! No kid will be sad with balloons and they add so much color when thrown around. I love this apple balloon diy! There are also some cute photos you can take to capture moments like this.

Yes, please! Send the kids home with some treats and an adorable gift jar full of school supplies! This DIY offers free printables too!

Every party needs a backdrop or a banner to spruce up the walls. I love this one because it’s simple and totally a congrats moment when you head back to school. It means you graduated Summer, right?

I love how pinatas are such a thing now. They are fun to make and you can stuff it with candy,  school supplies, and CONFETTI! These pencil pinatas will do quite nicely.

They make your guests feel welcomed with a personal touch. Now, edible place cards are on a whole new level of cool.

Anything mini is my jam! You can create a dessert for each guest and let them have at it. I saw this mini bundt cake shaped like an apple and i just about squealed.

I wish all those parents (and kids) out there the best of luck!
