Back-to-School with Pottery Barn Kids!!


Earlier this week, I had a fabulous opportunity to work with Pottery Barn Kids at Chandler Fashion Center on a Back to School Event! I styled a dessert table and tablescape using fabulous Pottery Barn Kids products, delicious desserts and our Printable Back to School Collection! What a dream to have access to all of the store's adorable furniture and decor. I decided to use the Madeline Desk as my "table" since it was perfectly fitting for the theme. The backdrop is a Mini Dot Panel in green, which was a perfect contrast for the apple banner and red apple on the cake. Apples were everywhere, including adorable cake pops by Inspired Occasions and the sweetest cake by Decadent Delights. I borrowed the white washed cake and cupcake stands from Williams Sonoma next door! {love} Laura from Laura Winslow Photography beautifully captured all of the details of the event!

I discovered these adorable acrylic jars which look like glass, but aren't! So much safer! We filled them with snacks and tied with ribbon and a cute tag.

This school bus frame was too cute not to use!

The cupcakes were made by Melissa from Decadent Delights and topped with our Printable Party Circles from our Back to School Collection.

Melissa also made some of the cupcakes with little fondant apples! Oh-so-cute!

The cake turned out so cute! I showed Melissa this cake that I recently spotted and she did a beautiful job making it perfect for our colors/theme. In addition to the dessert table, I styled a little tablescape for two using green farmhouse chairs and scallop table.

For the place settings, I used red and green melamine plates and bowls, along with cups from the new Eric Carle The Hungry Caterpillar collection! {darling} I couldn't resist the mini dollhouse desk and chair and topped it with an apple cupcake! The Hungry Caterpillar pillow dressed up the desk chair perfectly!

Swiss dot favor boxes by Party Starters were filled will popcorn and sealed with an apple party circle! We also set up a coloring table for the kids to make apple teacher cards I designed. Click the file image below to download!

It was so fun seeing The TomKat Studio on the store's chalkboard out front! I adore Pottery Barn Kids and truly believe it is the most inspiring brand for children. I am so excited to have the opportunity to work them.
