Back To School Party

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to share with you some pictures from a party I had for my daughter.  She is starting back to school on Tuesday and I thought it would be fun to throw a little back to school party for her and some of her littlest North East Grape Picker friends.  Yeah, we live in North East, PA and since we are in the heart of wine country here in Pennsylvania, our kids are affectionately known as Grape Pickers.  Anyway, it was kind of last minute, my daughter and I were sitting at Moe's last Sunday, one of our favorite spots, and I asked her if she would like to get a few of her classmates together for a back to school bash and she of course said "YES!!"

This was of course all I needed to get me into the party mode.  I hit Target and Walgreen's since their back to school supplies were such a great price, I couldn't pass them up for goodie bags!  I also made a stop at Hobby Lobby for their fantastic party bags, very big and sturdy.  Next up, the Internet!!  I found a fabulous free printable here.  I just printed, cut and assembled some goodies and voila!  Being such short notice, I didn't send out invites, I just called the moms and invited their daughters so that was one less step.  I also tried my hand at making tissue paper pom poms.  How fun and easy, I of course watched a YouTube video to learn how to do it.  Very inexpensive and a huge impact!

The girls has a blast! They had pizza and little snacks, played some games, played on the swing set and danced to loud music.  All said an done, I think it was a success.

A glimpse of what was inside of the goodie bags!

I also took a picture of each girl holding a sign showing what grade they will be in this year.  I had them printed out and now I just have to deliver them.  What a sweet keepsake from the party!  The signs were from here.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Thank you so much for stopping by:)

So cute Amy! I'm sure those little Pickers won't mind going back to school with a kick-off like that. I think I may have even recognized one of my old preschoolers :)
