Each year, I have a Back-to-School dinner celebration for our school-aged grandchildren. (You can see my fireplace mantel back-to-school décor here.) This year, for the first time, they will all be attending the same school.
Their school colors are blue and gold. I didn't have a solid blue table covering. I remembered one of the felt pieces we use for one of the Wise Men in our nativity pageant each Christmas. So, they will be dining on one of the Wise Men's robes! A gold napkin, centered on the table, provides the gold color. I used my Vietri plates and topped them with gold ball fringe edged blue napkins. Chalk boards serve as placemats.
The more you read, the more you'll know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go. Dr. Seuss.
Since she brings good luck for the school year, our "back-to-school fairy" presides over the table each year.
Each student will take home a bundle of pencils and a sharpener.
My mother's Language book seems like an appropriate addition for a back-to-school table.
I'm so glad you stopped by for our back-to-school celebration.
