True, the end of summer is bittersweet, but you can add a little saccharine goodness to this time of the year by throwing a fabulous back to school shindig. Whip up some lunch box classics like chocolate chip cookies, freshly sliced apples, and ice-cold milk to create a timeless classroom vibe. For young children heading back to school, plan fun activities such as board games; for college-goers off to the door room life, incorporate their university’s school colors and mascot into the decorations as you send them off. For kids of all ages, back to school soirees are the perfect last hoorah before summer turns to fall.
