My son is finally going to Kindergarten this year! How exciting! Even though 2020 has been such a crazy year, I wanted to make sure that we mark this important milestone for him and start a new family tradition to celebrate First Day of School every year! 

Back to school party may be at a smaller scale due now to the situations this year but it can still be sweet and memorable! Today, I’m excited to share these cute back to school party ideas that Yao and I came up with. These ideas and tips are super easy to execute and set up at home.

Inspired by the elements of school supplies, we went with the main color scheme of green, yellow, and red but gave it some little modern twist by using the pastel colors of mint, light pink, light yellow and coral for the party. We love how these colors bring the cute vibes to young kid’s back to school party table! We created an adorable balloon garland with and incorporated this cute back to school globe foil balloon as a simple backdrop.Kids Back-to-School_Party Ideas and Inspirations by Momo Party

For the tabletops, inspired by notebooks and apples prepared for the first day of school, we used these adorable striped aqua plates and cups. We layered them with these round cherry red plates and topped with these leaf napkins, and ta-da! You’ve got some apples on the table! How cute are they?!First Day of School Back-to-School Party_Tablescape Ideas by Momo PartyBack to School First Day of School Party Table Ideas by Momo PartySnacks and Sweets 

Since it was a for mini at-home party, we prepared some simple cupcakes vs. a cake. If you’re setting up the celebration for breakfast, waffles or pancake are also great ideas for the little ones! 

We also had the pleasure to work with our favorite local cookie girl, Lilly from @lillyssugarcrumbs. She created these ah-mazing back-to-school themed sugar cookies in the shape of pencil, apple, notebook, ruler, etc. Oh boy, aren't they so stinking cute? My little one absolutely love them! First Day of School Ideas Back to School Party Sugar Cookies by Momo PartyFirst Day of School Back to School Cookies_Party Ideas by Momo PartyBoy seating on a desk with paper plates, ruler shaped cookie, drinking milk in a modern stripe cups at a Back-to-School Home partyChild eating Back to shcool themed Globe cookie seating in a dessert table at his Back to school Home party
