5 Party Ideas For A Back-To-School Bash


School is fast approaching, and students will be complaining about it. They are absorbed in the idea of getting less sleep and having to do homework. You know that this is something to be celebrated, though. It is another step into the future and a further widening of your kid's potential. Why not celebrate the return of school with an outdoor party? That will get folks excited for the coming year and spice up an otherwise dull Summer day.

To give you some ideas, here are 5 ideas to get your Back-To-School party started.


Fairy Lighting On Your Patios

Having your party at night? Nothing quite says great party like fairy lights strung all along the patio. Your guests will appreciate the extra lighting for one thing, and, for another, it will look as transient and magical as the last days of summer. You can get them in school-themed shapes or colors to fit your theme for an extra touch of festiveness.


School Color Banners Over The Outdoor Furniture

If you have blankets or banners in the colors of your school, you can drape them around or on your outdoor chairs or benches. That will give your backyard the perfect school-party look. It will also protect your backdoor furniture from the party, so you are doing two things at once: decorating royally and making it easy to clean up once the party is over.

Trivia Quizzes

You know what is fun? Proving that you are smarter than a grade-school student. Set up a chalkboard or clipboard with questions and have people answer them for prizes. You can set it up like Jeopardy or hand out candy to people who get the answers right. This will not only be fun for the guests, but it will dust off the old cobwebs of the mind before the students enter the classroom.

Decorate Your Patio Cover In School Colors

As you can see from this HGTV article, there are a number of ways to decorate your patio so that your patio is beautifully shaded. One great idea is to make or buy curtains in your school's colors and hang them around your patio. Or perhaps you can pin a 'welcome back to school banner' on your awning. Decorating the patio cover will declare your school spirit loud and clear throughout the party and make your guests comfortable there at the same time.

Serve Dinner On The Patio Or In The Sunroom

This is the fading days of Summer, and you will want to catch all the warmth and light that you can before Autumn hits. Your guests will enjoy taking in the view of your backyard and soaking in the sunlight while they eat.



Everybody should celebrate school, and these five ideas should make it fun. Either way, it will certainly spice your Summer up.
