For many children and teens, going back to school means no more pool parties, water parks visits, and sleeping in. It can be a bummer, but school is an integral part of growing up and showing them how fun and exciting it is can turn their frown upside down. That's why Lisa Wakefield with Prairie Hive Magazine has creative ideas for a "last supper." "It is a great way to spend one last evening together as a family before the chaos of the school year begins, and it also helps reinforce the excitement and importance of going back to school," she said. Wakefield gathered school supplies from Target and Staples and used them as part of the table setting. "The runner and the pencil cup are made from wrapping paper that I already had, but it can be found anywhere!" she said.

The key to a fun tablesetting is to keep it simple. "Incorporate what works best with your personality and in this case, your children's personalities," she said. "Be sure not to try to incorporate too many things. There still needs to be room for food and people, so choose a few key colors to tie everything together and make your centerpiece simple and bold, but not too big."
