I was feeling ambitious and went with a little bit of a candy theme, thanks to all of these great ideas I saw floating around on Pinterest. The library tables were covered in these fun, candy-colored tablecloths and I made these cute, dum-dum lollipop bouquets for centerpieces that were given to each of the teachers, too. (Original idea HERE)
It is just a styrofoam ball in a painted terra cotta pot with lollipops shoved in there all over. I cut the ball in half because those things are expensive, but they were a little top-heavy and a few of them had accidents. So, if you ever make these, don't cheap out - use the whole ball.
They wanted me to come up with favors and I couldn't decide what to do, so I went with an assortment of candies and let them choose their own favor.
Gummy peach rings- You're a real "Peach!" Thank you for everything you do for our school.
Lifesavers- You are a "Lifesaver!" Thank you... (yadda yadda)
Swedish Fish- You are "O-FISH-ALLY" the best! Thank you... (you get the idea) (Found it HERE)
Gummy bears- Thank you "Beary" much for everything you do for our school.
Starburst- Your STAR service has us BURSTing with thanks!
They were a pretty big hit, and besides the dum dums flipping out of the pots and falling all over the place for a few teachers, things went well!
