Graduation and Back to School Party at Home
I can’t believe Summer is winding down and the kids will be back to school soon. As much fun as we’ve had this Summer, with the kids I am looking forward to settling back into our regular routine. Before school started, I thought it would be fun to host one more big play date. Hosting a graduation and back to school party at home was the perfect thing.
The party was hosted at our home, and I made it a back yard pool party. If you’ve been following me, you can probably guess where the decorations came from see here, here, and here. The decorations are from my local Dollar Tree. You can also order decorations online here.
I had water guns and water balloons for
What to serve graduation and back to school party at home.
When I have a party I try to make the food simple and easy for guests to help themselves. I created a taco bar with tortillas, chips, and all of the common taco and nacho toppings. I also had chick fila for the kids.
For dessert, I got chocolate and vanilla cupcakes from Whole Foods. Don’t sleep on Whole Foods. Their cupcakes are delicious and very reasonably priced compared to your local bakery.
I created a favor station with vases and candy I found in Dollar Tree. I made the print outs on my computer that went well with the Back to School theme. How cute are these class ring pops!
The kids had fun and enjoyed one last hooray before heading back to school. This was also a great way to celebrate and acknowledge my kids transitioning from one school to the next. My son starting elementary and my daughter starting pre-school.
Let me know if you have any ideas for celebrating graduation and back to school at home.
