5 Fun Back To School Centerpieces

It's that time again. New books, a new school year and to celebrate, how about some back to school decorating ideas.

I like to cheer the kids on and help get them excited by doing something special with apples, school themed decor, chalkboards, pencils. A back to school centerpiece adds a special touch to the new school year.

Homeschool Decorations for Motivation

As a homeschool mom for over 24 years, I need to get myself excited as well for the new year. I am schooling my 4th and last student right now so we like to jazz up our school table for the seasons and back to school decor is probably the most important of the year. You can find all my homeschooling posts here.

And finally, how about a couple ideas from us.
This first back to school display is really not a centerpiece but shows if you collect items with an educational them, you can make a sweet back to school vignette.

And this little back to school table idea I just threw together last year when school was upon us but I wanted to do something special for the girls.

Please check out our other back to school posts.


  1. So much fun.... I think I need to plan for crafts time next week. Your vignette is adorable, Elaine. So cute! I love the little desk. Apple candles are perfect, too!!!

    Did y'all get started this week? This is our first full week.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
