Today I wanted to share with you our simple “Back to School” Breakfast that I whipped up last school year for my daughter and was featured at Everyday Party Magazine. With a new baby and the whole school thing being new to me, I had no idea what’s to expected when my daughter started preschool.
This was a simple breakfast that I set up for my daughter's first day of school. This was her official first day of preschool and I wanted to do something special for her. Of course sometimes we remember things or wanting to do something special for our kids or a significant other at the last minute.
It was the evening before her first day of preschool. I knew that she would be excited and nervous at the same time so I decided that I wanted to make her morning extra special. After searching Pinterest for ideas I realized that I would have to rely on items that I have already and free printables.
I knew that I will not have time to make warm breakfast in the morning so I decided to cook chocolate muffins the night before. In the morning I set the muffins on a cake stand on top of two books to elevate the stand holding the muffins. I placed her favorite yogurt in a whisky glass (classy, I know) and her chocolate milk in a clear bottle for a better visual. The cupcake toppers are part of a pack of free "Back to School" printables I found of Pinterest. The two prints "Back to School" and " You are Braver than you Believe..." I created and printed the night before. As a place mat I used Michael's scrapbooking paper, left over from a different project.
In all fairness to set up this special breakfast cost me nothing, but the excitement seen on my daughter's face that morning was priceless.
