Back to School Watercolor Dessert Table on www.iheartnaptime.com #desserttable My daughter just started Kindergarten. On the first day of school the PTA had a “Boohoo or Yahoo” Breakfast and asked if we were boohooing or yahooing. I have to admit I was doing a little bit of both. I’m sad she’s growing up so fast, but it is actually really nice to have a little more freedom during the day. That’s why I created this Back to School Watercolor Dessert Table for me and my friends to celebrate #TGIBTS (Thank Goodness it’s Back to School)! It was nice playing games, having girl talk and eating desserts that were made for adults!

Back to School Watercolor Dessert Table on www.iheartnaptime.com #TGIBTS #FruitoftheLoom #desserttable I invited friends from my neighborhood and these are the sweetest ladies! Seriously, so lucky to call them friends! Everyone either had all their kids in school or hired babysitters. My friend on the right also has the best baby in the world and he didn’t make a peep the whole time.Back to School Watercolor Dessert Table on www.iheartnaptime.com #TGIBTS #FruitoftheLoom #desserttable Fruit of the Loom® sent me a fun party pack with a “Pin the Kids on the Bus” Game, T-Shirts for everyone, Balloons, #TGIBTS  signs, a tote bag and coupons Fruit of the Loom underwear that I could give to my guests (and keep for myself!) The T-shirts are so comfy and having adults play “Pin the Kids on the Bus” is pretty much a riot, but having the coupons was my favorite part! Anyone else have kids that wear a hundred pairs of underwear a week? I could use all the help I can get :)Back to School Watercolor Dessert Table on www.iheartnaptime.com  #desserttable For my #TGIBTS party, I served coconut lemon parfaits with fruit topping and whipped cream, craisin cookies and strawberry cake pops. The parfaits were so good! The bottom layer was coconut tapioca pudding, then I added lemon sponge cake and then I let the guests choose their own toppings. It’s such a refreshing dessert, so it’s perfect for an adult party (and honestly, my kids loved the leftovers too).

I made the background by cutting out 4X4″ squares of different colored construction paper with my watercolor paper and taped them together. Super easy and it turned out beautiful! Start Happy®!

    My kids start school in a week.  I’m feeling little sad…I love summer!  I think it would be so fun to get girls together and have a party!  I think I would serve some fruit pizzas, but I am loving the parfait idea….maybe I would have to do that!  :)  It’s such a cute idea!

    Well, this year will be my last “Thank God Its Back to School”. My third child is a Senior. I have been sending children off since 1993! This is a year of Boohoo and yahoo. Thank God I am done, Not counting college, and I can’t beleve my baby is a senior. I would definately serve memosas and bloody marys for drinks. Food fruit, cheeses, crepes, hummus and a decadent dessert such as chocolate lasagna with peanut butter frosting.

    My girls don’t start until next Thursday but this would be a great idea for a neighborhood get together since we have several families raanging from high school to preschool.  I’d love to serve some mamosas to cheer for a successful summer and relief that the kids are back in school, then lots of light finger food so the champagne doesn’t go straight to our heads!
