Your kids may not think back-to-school time is something to celebrate but once they see these amazing parties, they'll change their tune!

I fell in love at first sight with this sweet school soiree thrown by Little Sooti using free printables from Bird's Party (find them HERE).

I don't know what I adore most - the chalkboard labels:

The pencil apple pops:

The arithmetic cupcakes:

Or the lunchbox favors.

Look at those alphabet cookies!  So adorable.

Our fab reader Jenny from Crossing the Bugger-Dixon Line threw a book swap party to celebrate the start of school with her little guys and the details are delightful!

This wreath welcomed all of the book worms:

Decorations included book-page bunting, personalized bookmarks and a book mobile.

The guests brought books to swap.

And they got to take home a few along with book plates designed by Bushel and Peck Paper:

And a coordinating tote:

And here's a back-to-school bash from One Charming Party that puts a whole new spin on things.

Everything on that "dessert" table is made from school supplies!  Eraser "candies":

Elmer's glue "milk":

And a pencil and rubber band cake!

These parties will surely take the of the sting out of heading back to school and start to get the kiddos excited about what's to come.  Are you planning some sort of celebration for yours?  We'd love to hear all about it!

If you have a party you'd like to share, e-mail me at and you just might see it in next week's PARTY PEEKS!
