We can’t believe we’re already saying this, but it’s almost back to school time! Moms everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief, while children all around are wishing that summer vacation could last just a little bit longer. Before it’s time to get serious and back in the swing of school, a back-to-school picnic is the perfect way to celebrate the end of the summer!

Welcome the start of the new school year with these back-to-school picnic ideas :picnics stamford

Ice Cream Social: Because let’s face it, who doesn’t love ice cream? Keep it simple by arranging for an ice cream truck to serve cold treats to your guests, or go wild and set up a full service ice cream sundae bar with tons of toppings to choose from. Bananas and  sprinkles and whipped cream, oh my–and don’t forget the cherry on top! This will be a fun and easy way to cool off in the dog days of summer, while allowing kids and their parents to meet before the school year.

Breakfast Picnic: A fun and low-maintenance way to have all of your children’s friends together is by throwing a breakfast picnic! Arrange for baskets of muffins and bagels, and platters of fruit and yogurt! In true picnic fashion, red checkered tablecloths are the perfect decor for the event. You can even go crazy by adding these composition style notebook napkins to make them feel like they are ready for school.

Pool Party Picnic: Want to make a real splash with your kids? If you have access to a pool, throwing a pool party picnic is perhaps one of the most fun ways to get your kids in the back to school spirit. Serve up pizza and finger foods, and don’t forget the desserts! These beach ball ice cream sandwiches are the perfect way to satisfy your kid’s sweet tooth and stick to your pool theme!
