Emoji Photo Booth for the Yahoo Boohoo Breakfast (+ Free Printables)

My sweet girls both started school on Monday. I am officially 'home alone'. I am not quite sure what I will do after I clean house, workout, and walk the dog. Who knows?! But I was about to cry my eyes out on the first day of school.


Thankfully, I was hosting the annual PTA Yahoo Boohoo Breakfast for all the parents, right after drop-off. And nothing makes you forget your 'troubles' like serving others. There were lots of new families and so many of my 'old' favorites.  I am so happy to be serving as Hospitality Chair again and I have a really awesome co-chair and committee that has already made my job so fun!



For the breakfast, we used the decorations from the "Teacher Back to School Luncheon" (see here) and added in lots of tissue boxes/mini tissue packs (for the bohoo) and party blowers (for the yahoo). We also served light munchies. The food included coffee, juice, water, strawberries, mini bananas, mini muffins, and donuts.


I should have taken this photo before everyone ate-- just imagine that all the platters are full of food :) 

I advertised the event with these signs. They were posted around school and on our facebook page.


To help people mingle (and because I love to take party pics!) I made these emoji signs.

                                                                  ---------------------------------
-----------------------------------

They were great conversation starters. I walked around the breakfast and asked people to pick an emoji sign that matched their current mood. Either 'yahoo' or 'boohoo'. (I am a big fan of emojis. I know that I should use 'real words' in my texts but I like to use pictures.)


Getting together with others is the best way to start their school year! (People need people!)

Teacher Luncheon + Free Printable

I hosted the annual "Back to School" Teacher Luncheon on Friday. The luncheon is put on each year by the PTA Hospitality Committee. It is a fun way to treat the teachers to a special lunch. The teachers are working so hard to get everything just right for our kiddos- they deserve a yummy lunch!


I had a lot of help this year. I am so thankful, because many hands make for a light load! These ladies and kiddos know how to get things done! Decor- check, food- check!



The theme of luncheon was "The Future is Bright" - so I made these printables for each table. You are free to download a copy and use it for your school too!

The color scheme was black, white and yellow. We used school supplies, butcher paper, fabric, apples, and flowers to decorate. Lunch came from Olive Garden. And let me just say-- they were wonderful to work with. I highly recommend their catering.






The event was a hit with the teachers. I think everyone is ready for the big day! Back to school here we come!

Free Monogram Binder Covers

School starts in one week! We are busy running around this week getting all those 'last minute' details taken care of. All those little things that make for a great start to the year :) A few new outfits, new shoes, and school supplies. My girls both had 'one inch white binders' on their school supply lists.
And as much as I love things that are 'simply white'- we felt like these binders needed to be jazzed up a bit.

A quick Pinterest search led us to my new favorite site, "Chicfetti Monograms". And friends, let me just say, this site is like the holy grail of monograms. My girls and I scrolled through pages and pages of the cutest monogram prints. Florals, pineapples, polka dots, watermelons, bows! They are all free downloads that can be used for whatever you can dream up. Frame them and give as personalized birthday, baby shower, wedding, or teacher gifts.


Or do what we did, and slide them into the front of a plain white binder.


After downloading the prints, we simply highlighted the letters and replaced them with the letters we chose. Free personalization?! I'll take it.  These were so easy to make, we will probably change them out every few months.

I did sign up for their newsletter in order to download all the prints for free. Which to me- is no big deal. Free downloads and a free newsletter with Chicfetti ideas and printables?  Perfect- because I love monograms!! Plus their website is full of fun things to make with their free monograms.

Have your kids gone back to school yet? Did you personalize any of their school supplies?
