a back to school party.

Post and giveaway sponsored by OshKosh B’gosh. All opinions are my own.  Thanks for reading!

Last weekend we hosted a little back to school party as part of my partnership with Oshkosh B'gosh.

The weather was absolutely perfect so I set up a craft/snack table for a few friends and the boys outside on our deck.

I limited myself one table...

With all the hustle and bustle of vacations and pre-season sports right before school started, I wanted to keep things as simple as possible!

Oshkosh B'gosh generously sent a box full of supplies and I shopped the house for the rest.

I'm always a little amazed by the party props I have on hand. ;) 

The plan for the party was to let the moms chit chat while the littles got to color lunch bags and totes for themselves.

It worked out just right!
A great ending to all of our summers!

The boys colored for a bit, snacked for a bit, and then ran off their boyish energy in our backyard.  

I'm learning as a mom/party host/human being in general to let go of some control.  

Soccer wasn't on my itinerary for this party.

We were going to sit at my cute, thought-out craft table and color lunch bags and totes darn it.

We were going to color the cute Camp B'gosh coloring sheets.

Then we were going to snack on goldfish crackers and festive alphabet Rice Krispie treats and sip chocolate milk.  

But the grass and the soccer goal was calling their name.

And parties are not about adhering to schedules and plans. 
They're about letting littles be littles and letting them have fun.
So soccer it was. :)

And now...
