If you keep within the beloved themed symbols, like chalkboards, apples, crayons, pencils and the alphabet, you’ll get straight A’s for your party look! Just as in these adorable examples we discovered on party sites we love.

6 simple ways to plan a fun back to school party.

Send out actual school-themed invitations (1) to get the kiddies all excited to spend fun time with their friends again. Like a warm-up for school!

For the party prep, keep things stress-free by planning a snacks and treats station (2) ahead, with a DIY party banner made of paper cutouts of school supplies. Offer up colorful platters and bowls of healthy munchies like fruits, veggie sticks and mini skewers with a homemade ranch dip (4), little sandwiches, home-baked cookies and cupcakes, and fresh juices in dispensers.

Extra fun touches would be school-inspired labels (3) around the juice packs, and chalkboard-style food labels, mason jar stickers, and mini-bunting to top a simple white cake (5) trimmed with colored fondant apple cutouts. So easy and perfectly in theme!

For party favors, we love these DIY ideas of candy pencils, while for activities, how perfect are these back-to-school bingo cards? You can complement these with store-bought school supplies, stickers and edibles—and you have instant, adorable favor bag fillers!
