Tablescapes need not be limited to guests…I love spreading confetti on the kitchen table and tying some balloons onto their chirs to make the 1st day of school a celebration! Making the grade are these personalized Handwriting placemats from La Plates.
It’s back to school time! Some of you have children returning this week….others, like mine, start after Labor Day.
It truly seems like yesterday that Carter went off to Kindergarten – here he is on his first day!
He’s moving on to 3rd grade and his little brother is starting Kindergarten. So, with that….I want to make it a memorable day.
You may have heard of the German tradition called the Schultuete (Sugar Bag), a cone shaped gift bag that is stuffed with sweets and school related items, like pencils, sharpeners, crayones, etc…
You can make your own….or you can order one via Chasing Fireflies, which can be personalized with your child’s name. You can hang it on the back of their chair, so they see it when they come down for breakfast on the big day.
Packing their lunches? Check out the reusable ziplocks from Lunchskins and backpacks and labels from La Plates. They might just be tempted to eat something healthy when the packaging is this swell!
Loving this award winning alarm clock/nightlight I ordered Ty! It’s the Teach Me Clock, which is designed for 3+. Parents can set the clock to go from yellow to green – meaning it’s time to get up (or in the case of our early bird….it’s ok to come into mom and dad’s room).
And for all my mom friends, whose children are headed for Texas, Duke, Elon, Boston College and Miami of Ohio…..consider making their ringtone their college fight song! You’ll never have to guess who’s calling!
Here’s to a great school year everyone!
