It just doesn't seem right to be planning a back to school party in July but school is starting July 31 this year so there's not much I can do about it.
This year our theme was B is for Back To School. I always start with a color scheme and this party was all black and white with hints of red and yellow. I made the invitations to look like a sheet of paper. It gets an A+! I love the ruler tape found at Michaels and the paper clip with ribbon gives it some added fun.
We set up at the local park under a large gazebo. It was 800 degrees so the shade helped! Lunch was served in brown paper bags! I had some trouble making red frosting on the dessert so as a last minute save I dipped them in red chocolate. They actually turned out cuter that way. Oh and I used two bite brownies to save time.
