Guest Blogger: Lauren McKinsey, Back to School Fun!

Hi my name is Lauren McKinsey, happy to be blogging here today at Party Box Design.
I feel no matter how big or small, it’s every moment that counts.
It has always been my passion to design products to help my customers celebrate those moments.

With the first day of school quickly approaching and summer coming to an end, I could hardly wait to celebrate my nephew’s first day of Kindergarten. With children of my own who are too old for back to school cuteness, I was excited to design a collection that I knew my nephew would love.
Wanting to capture the excitement of the first day of school, I quickly fell in love with the idea of creating signs that celebrated the joy of entering a new grade. These signs could be held by the excited scholar for the back to school picture we all can’t wait to take on that early morning before school.
And then there are the fantastic school supplies! I always like keeping my very own on hand at home, and since presentation is everything, why not keep them in a cute container or pail. What a great way to keep supplies separated for multiple children since they can have their very own personalized tags.

Remind your little person how proud you are of their accomplishments with a special note just from you.
And, now comes the fun part! The after school treats. From fruits to cookies to ice cream, your little person is hungry after a long day of learning. I loved the idea of labeling canisters with after school treats, snacks and fruit tags. Fill a jar with back to school Hershey kiss stickers for an after homework treat!

Wouldn't it be cute to have a glass of milk and cookies sitting on the table when your little scholar arrives home from school? Wrap "milk" bottles in creative and inspiring tags and insert a fun and colorful straw.


This is such a fun and exciting time! It is a time of new beginnings, new friends being made, new skills being learned and a time to sit back and enjoy life's great adventures. I wish you a wonderful new school year as you celebrate your child!

Turning a love of all things cute and desire to celebrate life's moments with creative designs, Lauren McKinsey began her design company in the fall of 2010.
