Hallmark Makes our Back-to-School Cars Party a Dream Come True!

With 5 who are homeschooled, starting back into the new school year is a BIG deal.  In addition to ordering curriculum and supplies, we have paperwork to fill out and planning to do.  Add in the fact that we have all been working so hard in the yard and garden, and you have a reason to celebrate a new start.

We were asked by Walmart to throw a Back-to-School Cars Spaghetti Dinner party to help get the kids excited about entering the 9th, 4th, 2nd, and K grades.  We were provided with a huge bag of Hallmark "Dream Party" goodies, all designed to make our bash BIG and easy to set up.

While there were too many supplies to show them all here, I have picked out a few favorite features of the Dream Party line to share with you:

1. Set the Scene: This is an amazing assortment of items to make your party space look fabulous.  You wouldn't know it from these pics, but our kitchen/dining room is undergoing a remodel.  No problem, however, with the fun backdrops, banners, and tablecloths available in the Cars patterns.  We were able to cover all the ugly, and leave only the fun showing!

In addition to traditional decorations like balloons, table cloths, and backdrops, there was an adorable "Mater" snack holder that was perfect for keeping sweets at hand until time to eat them!

2. Create the Adventure.  If you don't have the time to scour Pinterest for fun party games, print everything out, and get it looking good, this line of products has you in mind.  We had fun Cars inspired games at our disposal, such as Balloon Drop!

3.  Remember the Fun.  What party would be complete without favors?  This was the best part of the party for my kids.  The assortment was unbelievable and contained everything from mini bubble wands to yo-yos to coloring books!  You can choose to get each party pack by individual type, or get a big pack with dozens of kid-friendly favors!

My kids may be just a few in the nation who love school and are excited to get started again.  We didn't need to have a party to get them pumped up, but it's nice to celebrate another milestone in their lives with the Dream Party merchandise from Hallmark.  You can find it at Walmart stores nationwide!
