Back to School Breakfast!

A couple of weeks ago, I hosted a Back to School Breakfast for the YW....I love me a good reason to have a party!!

These were the invites....the girls all ate the apples...ha ha!

 I thought they turned out pretty cute!
 Of course I forgot to take pictures when the girls were actually here and of all the place settings....but, I did remember to take a picture of an empty place setting once everyone was gone...ha ha!

I found most everything at the dollar that place!
 I found the water bottle labels online for free! 
 I got these little chalkboard buckets in the Target dollar bin....I'm excited for these little babies because I can use them for all sorts of parties!  At each place setting the girls had ABC coloring sheets that they colored while waiting for the breakfast to start...we also gave them a Back to School trivia sheet to work on...they did pretty well too!
 The counselors and I all made some yummy breakfast goodies...we had these Cinnamon roll recipe for me and they turned out awesome!!  Definitely making these for the fam again!  We also had muffins, fruit and a tator tot sausage casserole. I love to use the ONE piece of polish pottery that I bought in Germany...haha!  Someone from the church commissioned these and they actually made cool is that?

Each of us taught a "school subject" My first counselor taught social studies (making good friends), and P.E. (praying earnestly), the second counselor had Creative Writing (journal keeping) and English (no gossiping or cursing!) and I had Fashion Merchandising(dressing modestly...but cute...ha ha!)

I gave each girl this cute hand out at the end of the party.  I think everyone had a really good time and I really love bonding with these wonderful girls...I so enjoy my calling!
