Whimsical Summer Tea Parties

We’ve been a fan of tea parties since we were young. This may have a little something to do with watching Alice in Wonderland on repeat, but who knows! Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to host a tea party in the outdoors with all the flowers in bloom.

Since we still have a month left of summer, we’re going to share some of our favorite tea party ideas to inspire you to have your own before fall begins. Get ready for whimsy and pretty overload!

Chalk It Up – Chalkboard Themed Back to School Ideas

We’re reaching the end of our back to school themed posts! Though we’re sad that we’re going to have to wait a whole year to blog more about back to school, we’re still excited to share a few more ideas with everyone before we pack away our school supplies.

Back in elementary school, I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up because I loved drawing on the chalkboard. Fast forward (many, many) years later, and the obsession is still ever so present. There’s just something about the chalkboard that brings back so many memories! So in today’s post, we’re dedicating it to chalkboard themed ideas that are perfect for back to school!

Apple Themed Back to School Snack Ideas

We love our themed posts, especially for back to school because they’re reminiscent of our younger days (check out our previous post on Pencil Themed Back to School Snack¬†Ideas)! One theme we couldn’t wait to blog about for BTS is apples.¬† It used to be tradition to bring an apple on the first day of school for the teacher. That soon evolved to other back to school gifts, but apples always made an appearance in the classroom.

In today’s post, we’re going to bring back the BTS apple idea, but with a twist! Instead of real apples, we’re going to share some fun apple themed food ideas for back to school, perfect for students and teachers!

Rainbow Party Decor Ideas for Summer

One way to have a colorful summer party is to incorporate all the colors of the rainbow into your party decor.

So before summer comes to an end, let’s all host a fun rainbow themed party! We’re sharing our favorite multicolored party ideas in today’s blog post. Give these ideas a try this weekend to brighten your day!
