Themed party, Great ideas, and Inspiration Fridays! T.G.I.F.!
With the kiddos back in school and the list of things to do growing at an exponential rate, you might need an extra cup of coffee to get it all done! Coffee also provides a great party atmosphere- warmth, yummy aromas, and a little boost of energy! You could use a few of these ideas and start your Saturday morning off right this weekend, or you could plan it out and mail invitations for your own private Coffee House next week! Either way, Fridays are perfect for getting into the party spirit, and this Friday we're back at school (and needing a cup o' Joe).
Today's theme: Back to School Coffee Break
Reasons to have one:
If you're missing interaction with other adults since school started (but can't seem to find the time after school hours), invite a handful of friends over on a weekday morning (once the kids are out of your hair and that first school bell rings). You can sit around enjoying a cup of coffee, swapping summer stories, and exchanging "back to school" tales with the other moms.
You could also have a "Fall Coffee" just to celebrate the changing seasons! Enjoy a sunset-watching evening on the porch with a warm cup of coffee followed by a good old s'mores roast.
A little festive wording will really "perk up" your invitation:
"With the kids back in school and schedules filled up, you'll be needing more coffee... so join us for a cup!"
"Let's FALL into fun...with a warm cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun!"
When you've got a great pot of coffee brewing, all you really need to make it a party are a few flavored creamers, sugar, and some light breakfast-type items. If you want to go the easy route, pick up donuts or bagels from your local bakery. If you're feeling domestic, you can always slice up a tray of fresh fruit, pop some cinnamon rolls in the oven or bake blueberry muffins.
Just take the time to enjoy a silent moment over a cup of warm, comforting goodness. You deserve it!
Happy Friday, and happy party planning!
