How to Throw a Back to School Bash

Little Girl Amongst Bundle of BalloonsGrab your new backpack, favorite notebook, and fresh sharpened pencils: back-to-school season is officially here. It is time to trade in long summer evenings full of sunshine for early bed times in preparation of early mornings and after school activities.

Before summer officially ends, consider throwing a back-to-school bash for friends and family to celebrate the start of the school season.

AZ Party Mart has some party planning suggestions that will get everyone excited!

Consider the Type of Party

The hardest part of planning will be deciding what type of back-to-school bash you want to host with so many options to choose from. Consider celebrating the end of summer with a with a backyard campout. Instead of splurging on “one last summer vacation,” consider camping right at home! Let all the kids sleep in tents under the star-filled sky, wind down with a bonfire complete with s’mores fixings, and dust off the guitar to fill the night with the sound of campfire songs.

We also love the idea of hosting a classic picnic party to simply celebrate summer before schedules fill up. Host a classic picnic party with a back-to-school theme with crayon-themed cupcakes, name tag place settings, and brown paper bag favors stuffed with goodies.

Don’t Forget to Decorate

AZ Party Mart believes that no party is completed without themed decorations and party supplies. From a candy-red apple colored theme to the stunning yellow of a fresh #2 pencil, your options are unlimited.

Consider incorporating decorations related to your child’s favorite subject; for example, if your child loves to read, books can easily become decorations. If your child adores math decorate with numbers and calculators! We have number balloons that would be stunning staggered around a math-themed party.

We believe that balloons make perfect and timeless decoration for all parties and we offer a variety of customized balloon décor. Consider decorating your party space with school colors in arches, columns, and so much more!

Serve the Best School Snacks

 Although school lunches often get a bad reputation, there is something nostalgic about them. Whether you send lunch with your little one or they purchase lunch at school, consider “packing a lunch” for all your party guests. We love the idea of serving lunch in brown paper bags to your guests complete with traditional cuisine such as a peanut butter and jelly paired with a pudding cup and small milk carton. Don’t forget to purchase plates, cups, napkins, and silverware in your child’s school colors!

End the summer with a back-to-school bash that will be the talk of the classroom and make a big transition a little bit easier.
