I wanted to start a tradition of having a little back to school party for my grandchildren now that my oldest grandchild is beginning her school career in preschool. I had this little school desk from a certain doll collection that served as inspiration for my centerpiece. (Not to mention that my granddaughter would love it as it comes from her favorite dolls!)Black and white was the perfect color scheme, and besides I only have white or yellow chargers - so far:-)
Toile plates from TJMaxx - where else!
Little pencil vases - I think I will glue the pencils on because they are hard to keep straight! I also added my white everyday dishes that I love.
Adding the bowl just because it is cute. We won't be eating anything that needs a bowl:-)
Flatware from Ballard Designs.
Places for the grandchildren with their little chalkboard names.
Finally 2 little friends join us in their back to school clothes, sorry the picture is blurry - I can't figure out how to delete it from my post. I am very new to this blogging world! (not in reading blogs - just in having one)
The end - Preschool here we come!! (She actually started last week and had a great time)
