Back to School Party Invitation

This creative BACK TO SCHOOL PARTY was submitted by Alice Nielsen of Styled-It.

You know the feeling–that somewhat undefined spark inside that is triggered by the smell of fresh, clean lined paper, the colorful array of notebooks, erasers, and crayons, and the point of a newly-sharpened pencil. New clothes are purchased, teachers are greeted, and lunches are packed–school is ready to start again.

But, not before we celebrate! A celebration of the old; a celebration of the new. A celebration to bid farewell to the sticky popsicle and waterlogged swimming suit days of summer. A celebration to welcome a new year of friendship, learning, and fun. And, what better way to mark this change than to party?!

What a cute and fun party indeed! This event is full of ideas that will get any child excited to go back to school, from the No. 2 pencil favor-boxes to the the darling flash card banner, and school themed stationery and labels, everything is delightful! This party is not only geared for fun, but learning as well!

The back to school party ideas and elements to take scrupulous notes on from this party include the following:

  • Parchment paper wrapped PB & J sandwiches
  • Adorable No. 2 pencil favor-boxes

Back to School Party Details:

This is what Alice said about designing and planning the party- “With the start of the school year right around, creating a little excitement and fun for the kids is a great way to get them motivated for the first day of school!
We created a tablescape with a healthy lunch that’s so fun, kids won’t even know how good this is for them! We started off with some fun DIY printables that were downloaded from the Olice Etsy shop.
This party pack included these adorable Invitations, a flash card party banner, food labels, and faux book covers. These were easy to download and inexpensive too!
For the decor we created an easy to make faux chalkboard by using a 24 x 36 frame purchased from Michael’s Crafts store, then inserted a black mat board of the same size. We used regular chalk to write on the mat board and it worked perfectly. After attaching the “Welcome” banner pieces to a red ribbon we strung it over the chalkboard for a fun and colorful backdrop! We wrapped three books (you can use boxes or foam pieces too) with our book cover paper and stacked them to create a focal point to our table. A fun Mason jar resembling a No. 2 pencil (found at Target stores ) was filled with autumn-colored flowers and placed on the books!

A medium size galvanized beverage bucket turned upside down was used to display PB & J sandwiches. For Party favors we found these adorable bags at Target that had a ruler print on the front, these were filled with crayons, glue, fun pencils, and a paintbrush because kids love school supplies! For our food we added healthy options in a fun and festive tablescape. Also at Target we found these cute favor boxes that had a pencil motif and filled them with healthy gluten-free granola! PB & J sandwiches were made from organic all natural peanut butter and jelly. Sandwiches were cut in half and wrapped with a wide band of natural parchment paper and tied with bakers twine to resemble cute little parcels. Small french-style milk bottles with straws were adorned with three yogurt covered pretzels– a healthier alternative to using cookies. And of course it wouldn’t be a back to school table without red apples! Additional party favors were arranged in a vintage wooden box was filled with mason jars holding, colored pencils, markers, and colorful scissors”.
