Back to School dinner

Today I'm sharing my 
Back to school dinner!

back to school, lightbox, flashcards, letters

Every year I like to
throw a Back to School dinner for my family.

I usually start with a theme.

Our theme this year is Attitude.
I love this quote.
It's so true.

"So much in life 
depends on our Attitude."

This year we have all been working on
having the right mindset 
and being positive.

So this is the perfect theme for our 
2017-2018 School Year!

I love finding any excuse I can to decorate!
Life is so much fun when we celebrate the little things!

For my mantel I started with the black and white 
striped sign I use a lot!
Then I layered on my quote in the chalk paint frame.
I added some dried eucalyptus and my fave spindle candles.

I also used my *Heidi Swapp Letter board,
with black letters and 
to write another message about our attitude and choices!

I believe that we can each make the life we want.

These are the things I wish for my kids:
A Happy, Calm, Joyful and Fun Life

I used some supplies I had on hand to decorate the table.

I spray painted colorful magnetic letters in black and white.
I then layered them in a glass jar.

I made the flash cards in Word, then printed them
on cream colored paper.
I clipped them to wooden dowels with binder clips.

for a back to school message
sitting on top of books.  
What's more school themed than books?

For each place setting
I used a dry erase tracing board
underneath a basic white plate.

I used a black fabric napkin
with a small bowl of letter cookies (*similar here) on top.

Each place setting had a 
large binder clip with a small copy of the quote.
My kids were able to keep their quote and hopefully refer back to it!  


Do you throw a back to school dinner?
