My Simple Back To School Tablescape
I know some of you have already went back to school. We go back on the 21st. I actually go back too, yes I am going back to substitute teaching. I have a simple tablescape to celebrate the new school year. I think I will plan an extra special meal, to enjoy our last official day of Summer vacation.
Oh I love photographing colored pencils, is that weird?
It only took a few minutes to set up our back to school table. I grabbed three mason jars, and filled them with crayons, colored pencils, and markers, all from my son's art set. I grabbed an apple from the fridge to further accessorize the center of the table.
I realize now I forgot our silverware, but that's okay, it will give you a better shot of the cute school themed bandannas I found at Hobby Lobby. I often use bandannas as napkins, because they are inexpensive and come in so many fun styles. These were only 99 cents a piece
These bandannas turned napkins are so cute, I might need to get more, for teacher gifts.
Inspired by my youngest starting Kindergarten, I used tiny little chalkboard clips, to write our first initials on, and use as place cards.
Shortly after painting my dining set teal, I found these dishes on clearance at Walmart. It was meant to be, I bought the entire set for only $30.
Well that's one of many things I have been up to, what about you? Come share at our Anything Goes weekly linky party.
