This year, our PTA theme is classic board games and we kicked off the year with a Back to School breakfast for the entire staff.
These Hungry Hungry Hippos greeted teachers at the break fast buffet. I re-used the hippos later for a teacher’s “Hungry For Hard Workers” bulletin board.
Here’s a close up of some Monopoly food labels I created for the breakfast buffet:
Three years ago I did this banana breakfast for teachers the first week of school and it was such fun I decided to do it again.
I wrote fun messages on all of the bananas. It’s funny to watch teachers pick a banana based on what it says!
We served bottled water that we wrapped with Monopoly money and OJ. Water is always a hit because teachers can easily take it with them to their classroom. Those with higher dollar amounts went first, of course. ;)
For centerpieces, I opted to just use stacked games. Each centerpiece was 3-4 different games stacked up – enough for a little height but not so big they were in the way.
In between the stacked games, I put paper sacks that were decorated to look like dominoes. The sacks added color, height and were very inexpensive to make.
Here’s how everything looked on the tables before the teachers got there. Four different colored “table runners” from a Twister bulletin board were spread out among the tables. You can see the yellow one in this photo:
Hope you get some good ideas for when you’re hosting a teacher event!
Thanks for visiting!
