I can’t believe we are a month out from school starting. Here in Indianapolis schools head back on the first of August! If you’ve been a reader for a while though, you know we home school. So our back to school timing is a little different. I have our official start date as August 8th! I am so excited.
I spent the better half of the last month preparing a fun Back to School Party for the kids in our family. On Jake’s side the family is huge, so his grandmother has always had really fun (and large) get-togethers to bring the family together. I talked to her about hosting a party for the grandchildren and she was very excited! This was also my first time putting together a decent sized party on my own, so this past weekend was really fun for me in a lot of ways.
We were lucky enough to have our party sponsored by Orange Leaf frozen yogurt. The kids and adults really loved the froyo. I personally loved that Orange Leaf made my life super easy from the get-go. Everything was easy to do, from securing the yogurt for the party to getting it on the table. I just let them know which flavors and toppings we wanted and they put together this adorable Pop-Up Party Box! Not only was it great for transporting, it made serving really simple. The kids were able to scoop out whatever toppings they wanted all on their own. We chose Brownie Batter, Wedding Cake, Cookie Dough and then we also tried the super cute summer flavors: Spa Day Sorbet and Strawberry Serrano Lemonade!
Even though we are headed back to school soon, it is still the dead of Summer. So we focused a lot on water fun for our activities. We had a water balloon fight, sprinkler and eventually the kids got hold of the garden hose and just went to town with that. I also set up a fun little photo booth where the kids could take silly photos! Really, it was super simple to put together. Of course, my attendees were easy to please elementary aged kids and younger- but I realized I had stressed out for no real reason.
The party also gave me an excuse to stretch my DIY muscles a little bit, which was a lot of fun. I will be sharing the tutorials for the gift bags, pom poms and punch very soon here! Getting the coolest part of the party, the froyo, taken care of so smoothly made focusing on everything else a snap for me. All in all, I would definitely do it again and I’ll be turning to Orange Leaf for my sweet party snack needs from now on.
Plus, they are nice enough to give away some of their awesome frozen yogurt & swag to four of you! All you have to do is comment below with your favorite flavor of frozen yogurt and which toppings you’d chose. Four winners will receive a $25 gift card to Orange Leaf.
