Back to School Teachers Luncheon

Banner hanging - from the TomKat Studio

This year I'm incharge of all of the Teacher Appreciation activities for the PTO at our school.

We seriously have the BEST teachers and staff at our elementary school so this little responsibility of mine is FUN!
{Plus....I really LOVE spoiling teachers.}

To kick-off the new year, we threw a 
Back to School Luncheon 
for all of the teachers, 
a few days before school started.  

I decorated the tables with red and white wrapping paper {Hobby Lobby has THE best!} along with school supplies in chalkboard pails.  

We had Port of Subs cater the lunch {seriously YUMMY!} and in order to differentiate all of the different types of sandwiches, I made place cards out of apples, pencils and blank printable tags from the TomKat Studio.

Water bottle labels are from A Blissful Nest.
{Such an easy way to spruce up the decor!}

I made apple shaped sugar cookies to serve for dessert and I might've just had 1 {or 8} of them each myself.

How cute is Carson's teacher?
So blessed to have such fabulous teachers
 in our children's lives.

I had each teacher fill out a questionnaire while they ate - - telling me things like their:
favorite soda
favorite restaurant
favorite dessert

We also had a raffle for all of the teachers to enter.
The Grand Prize was basket full of 
classroom supplies worth $50.

We also had 4 'smaller' prizes of gift cards.
I think? the teachers really liked that.
We just had them write their name down and then we drew the names at the end of the lunch.

Fun times!
Happy Back to School-ing.


  1. This looks GREAT, Marci!! I can't wait to use some of these ideas for the back to school breakfast I am throwing for our teachers. I have a question for you though- do you get to pick which teacher your kids get each year? Like, can you go request to the principal who you want? Our principal just started that option this year and I LOVE it! I mean all our teachers are fabulous, but I kinda love that I can pick my very favorite one for them :)

    1. In years past, we've gotten to put down a first and second request for our kiddos teachers. However, they say that it's not necessarily guaranteed that you'll get them. We seem to have lucked out though! We just got a new principal though so this may all change this next year.
