If you have school-aged children in your home, the month of May brings all types of closure. The end of seasons, recitals, honor roll, performances, rising-up ceremonies, graduations – and the list goes on. It’s a wonderful to time to throw a party and celebrate these milestones.
If throwing a party for the nursery school set, your friend is butcher paper or vinyl tablecloths. Roll them out and let the kids go wild. Don’t over plan the offerings but make sure to have a main event. I always have back-up stickers and crayons for those lulls and to cover my butcher paper tablecloths.
A favorite fete among the lower school circuit is always a slumber party. Level up with Dreamy Tee-Pee, who will supply personal tents or tee-pees, themed decorations and bedding options.
Once in high school, enlist your teenaged co-host in throwing a dinner party. Linens and a planned menu set the stage for a memorable and sophisticated evening. Hide the booze and get out of the way!
For a teen dinner party, decorate your table but add some personal favorites to make it their own. Harry Styles Idol Candle, Hazelnut, hazelnutneworleans.com.
