Fiesta Friday - Back To School 2010 Edition

There are so many interesting directions to take your Back To School party's theme; normally it's about using school supplies and such for a more generic feel. But no one said you couldn't focus on an aspect of school like a school bus or your child's favorite subject. Here are a few inspiration boards to...inspire you. And the beauty of it all, you can mix and match to your heart's delight.

Breakfast/Snack Time
What's more quintessentially 'school' than milk & cookies for snack? Plan a whole party around it; check out my post on cookie buffets.
How in love am I with The Purple Pug's breakfast bar; it makes a perfect neighborhood Back To School party. Wanting to do something simplier? Donuts, juice and milk are always appreciated, but take your donuts to a classy level by displaying them on a nice stand. Or personalize individual packages with a fun logo like this one from Got 2 Have Faith.
