Every year our PTA does a wonderful job spoiling our teachers for teacher appreciation week. Each day has a different theme to make sure they are treated to something special each day. One of my favorite days is the teacher luncheon. We pick a theme and transform the ordinary lunch room into an elegant meal. My fab. friend Becky selected a fun theme “our teachers are the tweetest”. I always love collaborating with Becky as she is an amazing shopper, she really likes to plan ahead. By picking her theme way in advance she is able to create magic with a small budget. Our color palette was robins egg blue, moss green, and grey. We used lots of textured burlap, moss, wood and wool to create a very rustic, but elegant, feel.
The table centerpieces were branches found in my yard. We used mason jars for flower vases; I decorated them by wrapping moss covered wire around the rim. (I great find by Becky at the Beverley’s outlet) My favorite element was the ruffled burlap table runners. I am definitely going to reuse these. They were easy to make, but your machine will need a deep cleaning to get rid of loose fibers.
The buffet table was filled with a variety of salads donated by our wonderful parents. A sushi and sandwich tray were added to make sure everyone had a variety of food.
Becky found this cute bird container to store the cutlery. I recycled an old Easter wreath by spray painting it blue, and adding moss and a burlap bow.
I cut a burlap bunting and hotglued it to the moss covered wire
As always the dessert table was the focus of the decor. Becky worked wonders creating many DIY projects for the table
Becky hand wrapped each letter to spell out “Tweet” ~ I am sure it took forever but the look is well worth the effort.
I am a huge fan of cake stands I especially love home made ones. Becky used a variety of logs glued to candle sticks to create fun stands for the desserts.
Homemade cookies look delicious in these super sized mason jars
I had so much fun working with Becky; she leaves no detail untouched. Can’t wait to see what we can come up with for our back to school teacher luncheon.
