end of the school year party [storyboard]


A friend of mine is having an end of the school year party for her kiddos and she asked me to help her come up with some ideas - yippee! She's already got some outdoor games and a mini-pie eating contest in mind - the kids are gonna love it!  Read on for what I've come up with so far and don't forget to stop back Thursday for a yummy seasonal recipe.


decor:

Fun and fresh - buntings draped on the deck, pinwheels on the snack table, gender neutral summer colors like teal, red, and yellow. 

1) buntings by Starlit Nest

7) pinwheels by Elizabeth St.

photo booth:

I am totally hooked when it comes to the fun photo booth ideas floating around the internet these days! Large empty frames, jumbo sunglasses, fake mustaches, and chalkboard bubbles on a stick make for some super photo ops! How cute would it be to take those photos and pop them in a photo strip collage using picnik?!

2) jumbo sunglasses by Oriental Trading
  (I bet you could even find some at a thrift store!)

3) chalkboard speech bubble by mister mustache

4) fake mustache by stichesintime

snack time:

Since this party will take place after school, a light snack is a must. A while back I saw the cutest "make your own snack mix" idea and have been itching to use it!  I just ordered myself some fruit baskets (the ones shown, actually!  don't worry, she has more...) - they would make the cutest serving pieces at a party like this one.  Most aren't food safe, so make sure you pop a bowl inside before adding the food.

5) wooden berry baskets by paperjar

6) snack mix idea as seen on the blog avery and augustine
