Back to School Party {2012}

I feel like this post should have been titled "the little party that could..." after one of my favorite classics, because the reality is it almost didn't happen. But Noonie came to the rescue and I'm so glad she did!

You see, I've been in kind of a "party funk" lately and I didn't see the point in really having a "party" if I didn't even have school supplies to present the littles (we bought the prepaid pack through the school and had it directly delivered to the classroom since it was a fundraiser for the PTA). But then, Noonie reminded me that it didn't need to be big or fancy, just a little way to kick-off the year and make the day before school started extra special.

And she was right!
Shhhh, don't tell her but she usually is! :)

So a little after midnight on Thursday - the day before school started - I decided to start shopping my house and seeing what I could come up with. And this is the result. Not too bad for a $3.00 {the cost of the cupcake mix} mini party, huh?
Yes, a lot of the props came from our {back to school photo shoot} and I repurposed the hanging paper decorations from {Grace's 5th birthday}.  My shabby vintage quilt played center stage once again.
The littles wore their first day of school outfits from {last}{year} and we were ready to par-tay!
I'm excited for cooler weather so we can enjoy picnics outside once again...I think next time I'll pack everything in brown paper bags...the littles went nuts over them.
I love repurposing stuff and this little chalkboard was the perfect serving tray.
Is it just me or does milk taste better in a glass bottle??? This little pumpkin sure thinks so!
Oh my, this little girl LOOOOOVES her milk! She drank 3 out of the 4 bottles on the table in just a couple of minutes...funny because Hudson won't touch milk unless it's chocolate milk. But you know what he does love??
Yup, he's got my sweet tooth, alright!
And the little pumpkin so does NOT! I asked her recently what her favorite food was and she said it was a tie between hummus, black olives, and broccoli!
She does like brownies though and I guess these red velvet cupcakes were pretty yummy because she ate one and said the cream cheese frosting was "yummalicious".
My two favorite little people in the whole wide world...
Earlier in the Summer, Noonie said she wanted to get the littles something for back-to-school and she ended up getting them their backpacks and lunchboxes. Thank you, Noonie!
Time to check out that backpack...
When I saw this book at Barnes & Noble I knew I had to get it for the little pumpkin...it fits her perfectly!
This may or may not have been a birthday present we misplaced and just recently found again...Grace is so excited for Noonie to teach her how to sew! ;)
I love how Grace's lunchbox turned out!
Hudson's orange-and-blue-are-my-two-favorite-colors gear...
Hmmm...what's in here?
{We ended up having to get Hudson a bigger backpack - hence the lack of a monogram on this one - because even though this is supposed to be the "preschool" size backpack from PBK, it is TINY and his lunchbox doesn't fit inside...a requirement for his preschool.}
I want to eat my lunch now! ;)
Hudson loves all my vintage Junior Elf and Little Golden Books, so I added these two to our collection...
I think we're ready for school!!!
Can't belive we have a KiNdeRGaRtenER and a PrESchOOleR!!
Here's wishing all of you with littles starting school a WONDERFUL 2012-2013 year!!

I am ordering "Crafty Chloe" for my Chlo as we speak! I can't believe I haven't seen this book before and can't wait to read it to my sweetie and the 25 in my classroom! I love all of your ideas and sweet style:) Wishing your kiddos a blessed school year!
