Need A Fresh Flower Decorating Tip For A Back-To-School Party?
Back to school parties are the highlight of the summer. They set the tone for the rest of the school year. After a long summer's vacation (or a short one for year-round schools), it's always nice to throw a little celebration that welcomes in the new school year and says goodbye to summer vacation. It's not a time to mope though! Back to school parties are fun, exciting, refreshing gettogethers with friends. Where's a cause for sadness in that??
So now that we're up to speed on the tone of a back to school party it's time to talk about decorating. Fresh flowers are, as with any party, the best way to bring life and vitality to the celebration. Streamers, balloons, and party utensils are all well and good. What really gets the party decorations bumping though--why, that's flowers of course!
Here Are Some Clever Fresh Flower Decorating Tips for A Back To School Party
Match the color of the flower arrangement to the decorations. If the team colors are black and gold, live it up with black and gold flowers! (Yes, it CAN be done!) If they are red and white, use red and white. And so on and so forth.
Use your child's favorite color(s) as the theme of the flower arrangements. This will help your child feel like they had a special hand in the party and that it really is something to celebrate part of their life.
Ask each child to bring one fresh flower to the party. Use these to create a bouquet or two. Place these at the center of the room so that each child will be able to view their contribution. If an outdoor party, create a centerpiece for the picnic table or food table using the same idea.
Decorate the main table with fresh flowers then give each child one as they leave. Stems of flowers are excellent gifts for young middle school children and older children. Young children are easily amused and glad to receive any gift. Older children recognize the significance and may choose to preserve the flowers, especially if it's the Back To School Party for their senior year.
