Back to School: Creative Lunches & Bento Boxes (Part 2)

Can you believe it? Almost exactly to this day a year ago (just one day off, but who’s really counting!), we posted some fun lunch and bento box ideas for back to school (check out the post here). We’re back with a part 2 because that post was just so fun to write, and so many more lunch ideas have surfaced that we just had to share them!

For those of you that are not familiar with bento box lunches, let’s do a little bit of a recap from last year:

This creative way of lunching comes straight to us from Japan, and is now seen in many countries (and cafeterias around the globe). Many Japanese children bring elaborately decorated lunches (known as bento boxes) to school.

Without further ado, here are some fun lunch and bento box ideas for 2013 back to school!

Don’t you wish you had these back in school, cause we do! If you know a kid starting school soon, surprise them on the first day of school with a cute bento box. We adults may not be going back to school exactly, but it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy these cute lunches, as well!

Cool Party Decor Ideas Using Balloons

As long as we can remember, balloons were one of our favorite parts about decorating for a party. Not only are they easy to find in every color imaginable, but they’re also fun for the kids to play with (or even us adults, too)!

Though balloons only require helium and a string, there are so many ways out there to that can take regular balloons to the next level. We’re going to share some cool (and different) balloon decorating ideas in today’s blog today, perfect for any summer party (or birthday party)!

Decorating Summer Parties with Lanterns

When summer rolls around, we start stocking up on multicolored paper lanterns to prepare ourselves for the summer parties coming our way. They’re inexpensive to buy in bulk, and can do so much when you need to decorate for a large space on a budget.

They’re also great for summer parties because of all the colors they come in, and work great hanging in the breeze. We’ve seen many fun inspiration pictures of people using lanterns for their summer party, and we’re going to share them with you today!

Lanterns also make great party decor for other seasons because of the wide variety of colors they come in. Orange, brown and yellow are great for fall, and white and blue (or red and green), are perfect for winter. Give lanterns a try this year!

By the way, this is our 400th post!
