Back to School Segment

 Yesterday I had the pleasure of going on the Morning Show on WCFN to share some cute back to school ideas and cupcakes.  In case you missed it, click HERE to watch the clip.

 I found the idea for the pencil vase over on Shindig Parties TO GO.
It was super EASY and turned out really cute.
To see a tutorial, you can get all the details over on Shindig's blog HERE.

 Can you really go wrong with oreos and melted chocolate?
I found this idea via Shindig's blog, too!  
To see a tutorial on how to make these you can find it HERE.
She also has some FREE back to school printables you can download, too!

 I found these cute cupcake liners and toppers at Williams-Sonoma.

 These "I'm So Lucky to Have You" tags are so cute! 
I found them via The Girls at Eighteen25.  
You can download your FREE set HERE.

 My grandma passed two chalkboards down to me when she was doing some cleaning awhile back, and as soon as I got them I KNEW what I was going to do with them.  I'd seen back on Living Locurto last year that you can put what grade your child is going into and the year, and have them pose with the chalkboard on the first day of school each year for a picture.  It would be a fun tradition each year and would make for some cute photos to display at the high school graduation party!  I've had a few people ask me where to find these chalkboards, and I actually saw some today at Hobby Lobby so look there!  :)
For the high lighters, I found this cute tag that says, You are the Hi-Lite of my day!  Super cute and what teacher can't use some new high lighters?  To get your FREE printable, head over to One Charming Party's blog HERE.

I love these cupcakes!
They turned out so cute.
I had seen the idea in my Martha Stewart cupcake cookbook and have also seen them on pinterest, where they linked back to Betty Crocker.  They are super easy to make and very kid friendly.  To get a demo on how to make them, go watch the clip!  :)
