nuts about school {nutty inspiration for back to school}

Ah...the smell of back to school is in the air for the little hipsters.
Was daydreaming one fine day and thought that a back to school peanut butter + jelly tasting would be the coolest way to get ready to roll back down the hallways of higher learning. It evolved into a squirrel + nut theme-come on, you know that's funny.

So I gathered up some of my ridiculously talented Lovas and assembled some nutty inspiration for a back to school playdate. A tiny sandwich tasting for an afternoon of giggles, high drama and Nutella.

You know I think outside the crayon box-I love to transform the ordinary into extraordinary. With glitta. Hope you find some dazzling inspiration. Wishing you and your little hipsters a stellar school year.

Class dismissed. xo
