Back To School

This is my take on a Back To School Tablescape.I've always wanted to try my hand at putting together
this flower arrangement. Not to bad for my first time...
if I might say so myself.

I bought these plaques at the Dollar Tree and spray painted
them with chalk board paint. That was fun!

Then I placed my basic white plate on top of my chalk boards.

Ironed and folded my black and white check napkin
into thirds, and placed over the white plate.

Next I placed the yellow salad plate on top the napkin.

I thought the mini tablets were so cute. I used these for my
place cards. Set an apple and a large paper clip with the tablet for favors.

Glassware and the candles.

Some of my favorite school books I've found in thift stores here and there.

Yummy! Chocolate cupcakes for dessert.

Flower arrangement on the center inland of the kitchen.

Thanks for visiting my Back To School Tablescape.
Hope you enjoyed your visit.
