Back to School Ideas – Best of the Weekend 08-16-19
Have your kids gone back to school yet? Every day, people are posting all their first day of school photos on social media. To me it seems too early because here in New Jersey, most schools start after Labor Day. Just like every year, I am not quite ready to say goodbye to summer!
Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party! We are so happy you could join us! As always, we invite you to link up your inspiring posts which may include DIY, crafts, recipes, home decor, tip and more! Let’s get started…
Each week, when you link up to Best of the Weekend, your link will appear on both our blogs. Let’s meet your hosts…
If you don’t already follow our blogs, we would love for you to follow us in some way:

Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…
Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs. In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share. Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!
Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week! For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.
Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!
We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media! Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.

Thanks for hosting
Living in Waco my favorite time to visit Magnolia is during the holidays when the Silos are lined with sparkly, white lights. And my go to gift is any of their candles that’s wick makes a crackling sound—they supply the gift bag and tissue paper too! As far as back to school, it is definitely that time of year in Texas even though it is over 100 degrees. Enjoy your pool; I know we will this weekend!
Thank you for featuring my flower arrangement this week. Like you, I am savoring the last few weeks of summer.
Thank you for hosting. This week I served up: On Tuesday is a healthy Philadelphia Creamy Salsa Dip. Wednesday is my Cream Cheese Pepper Dip and ending up Appetizer week with another dip on Friday I am serving a Seven Layer Taco Dip.
Thanks for hosting, have a great weekend!
Fun to join in again — thanks for hosting!
Thank you for hosting the party. Enjoy your week.
Back to school looks a lot different for us as our kids go to college, but I love these awesome ideas for the littles – especially the art stations and organization!! Hope you are savoring the last few weeks before your boys go back Shelley! xx
