Back To School (T)

It's that time of year when the kids go back to school so I decided to do a tablescape with school in mind.

Had to include some apples for the teacher!

I chose primary colors, red, yellow, blue and green….

I added a pencil too!

 After school dinner could include some cool fruit smoothies to go in the big yellow mugs, homemade mac'n cheese with ham followed by apple crisp for dessert to enjoy too!

 Sunlit pictures add some cheerfulness!

 I didn't notice the rooster in the background until I saw these on the computer- added a nice country flair!

Tablescape details:
Tablecloth from Kohl's earlier this summer
Red placemats from Juliska (watch for sales)
Green dishes by Park- Village Collection
White dishes by Mikasa called Antique White
Yellow mugs from Pier 1 last year
Napkins from Pier 1- Two years ago
Napkin rings from Pier 1 a while back
Blue flatware from Horchow

    Adorable Back~to~School post, dear friend!
    I, still to this day, love YELLOW No. 2 Pencils with red erasers!
    Your thought of Apple Crisps made me remember School Cafeteria Lunch.
    Think that was the first time I ate Apple Crisp!
    Love your color scheme. . .and the apples are quite appealing!

  2. Sounds so yummy, Liz.
    I'd love to come to your house after school,to a cheery table and delicious food.
