First Day of School
Here in Germany, the first day school, to be exact the first day of first grade is a very very big deal. Said child gets a large “Zuckertüte” which is cone shaped and filled with treats! Usually the “Zuckertüte” matches the new school bag. There is a ceremony at school, followed by a mass for the catholic schools and then the famlies go home for a big party. Germans take the first day of school very seriously.
Thanks to my Cricut, I was able to cut out Abc´s and 123´s quickly and with ease.
The tablescape was just a little dark, so I sat down and made some paper flowers…I think it brightened up the table just fine.
The black rocks? Well, i just took some chalk board paint and upcycled some rocks out of the yard. Same for the charger plates, I just took some charger plates that I do not use anymore and painted them with chalkboard paint that I bought at Action Markt.
Wishing you all a happy week. Congratulations to all those new first graders and Good Luck to everyone else returning to school… Make the 2018-2019 School Year the best one yet!
A special shout out to all of the students out there starting their last year of schooling. Senior Year is full of special memories, ones that you will remember for a life time. The highlight of my senior year was playing a solo piece in the spring band concert. I know….geeky to no end, but it sure was special to me.
