School has never looked like so much FUN! I recently came across this adorable Vintage-Modern School Day theme from Anders Ruff Custom Designs. Almost all schools are back into the swing of things now but I had to share this wonderful party/theme. Your little ones will forget about summer and be ready for school with this party! Anders Ruff Custom Designs was inspired by their new School Day printable design collection, you’ll find lots of details here that can add a little bit of fun to their “everyday” school experience too… like cute bookmarks, note cards, book labels & more!
In addition to Back to School celebrations, this would also be a fabulous theme for Teacher Appreciation week… or as a birthday party theme for your favorite little bookworm!
They styled this photoshoot at an 1890 One Room Schoolhouse in Huntersville, North Carolina. It had been preserved and is used for field trips and other events. They used the space to show a fun “school day” play date or party. The ladies of Anders Ruff thought the classic old “school” vibe went along great with their new printable School Day collection. Photo’s were taken by their fabulous photographer, Becca Bond, and she captured every detail!
Label all your school supplies! A MUST!
They created fun packaged lunches for all of the kids to eat after playing. Sandwiches where wrapped in waxed paper and twine and embellished with their printables. Apples were stuck into cupcake wrappers that they filled with some natural shred and added a printable party flag. They also included some cookies and pretzels in a cello bag and topped it off with a bag topper that has spaces to check off descriptive words for the foods inside (Salty, sweet, delicious, healthy, etc) The juice boxes where wrapped with the ABC patterned papers. And they used their printable party logo as an embellishment for the striped straws.

Thanks again to the creative ladies at One Charming Party for sharing these labels. Happy Back to School everyone!!
Back to school time is here and it’s time to think about your little ones lunch box. At least in my house we are thinking about getting new lunch boxes (and backpacks) for the upcoming school year. My girls are entering into preschool (so scary…they are getting too big too quickly). Last year’s lunch box was great but a little small for two little girls with a growing appetite. I recently came across PlanetBox, a very cool lunch box for both kids and adults that was designed by two parents. PlanetBox, is an eco-friendly lunchbox made out of high quality food-grade stainless steel and saves parents out there from buying sandwich bags and other lunch packing containers.
PlanetBox was designed to help parents pack healthy, well-balanced lunches their kids will love. Part Japanese Bento box, part TV dinner tray, PlanetBox’s individual compartments ensure that foods do not “touch each other.” The sandwich compartment guarantees no more squished sandwiches. There’s plenty of room for fruit and veggies, and even a small spot for a little tasty treat. The right-sized compartments guide parents on how to pack a variety of foods, and get the portions right. At the end of the day, the whole thing can go in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
PlanetBox’s kid-friendly design features one easy to use latch that little fingers can open and close on their own. Food arrives at school neatly displayed in one super stylish looking tray. And here’s the coolest part–kids get to personalize their own kits with ultra-hip “rocket”, “under the sea”, or “retro kitty” themed magnet designs (11 styles to choose from). What better way for kids to express their personality!
Definitely not your old-fashioned metal lunch box, PlanetBox is truly lunch transportation for the green generation. I can’t wait to receive ours!
I recently spotted this adorable idea over on a wonderful blog called eighteen25, a Good Deed Card! What a fabulous idea! Reminds me when I was in high school and had my smoothie card. Every time I went I made sure to get it punched so I could get that free smoothie. Amazing how a little card and a simple punch made you so happy. The ladies at eighteen25 put this same idea into a card for your little ones. Every good deed, you get a punch or a stamp. Once you get to 13, you get a treat….whatever that may be between you and your little one. A trip to the movies, a new toy, miniture golf, etc. All I have to say is genius! Thanks ladies! Nothing like a little bribery.
And to make it better the ladies have a free download so you can use these cards right away with your kids. To get your cards, download cards here.
This Strawberry Shortcake Party is actually a bridal shower but I thought how fun this would be for and idea for a baby shower party or even a child’s (older child of course) birthday party. This was featured on The Wedding Chicks blog and I just couldn’t help to share. I love the colors love the flowers and just think it’s a beautiful party idea.
Here is a look inside this fabulous party
Absolutely adored the cookies on the table in the adorable strawberry baskets. And the flowers…beautiful!
