This teacher's lounge is quite a bit older and a bit more in rough shape. We needed to cover a lot of tables cheaply so we did end up using plastic...not my favorite, but I have to be realistic. We also did repeat the waffle and yogurt bar idea because it was a nice change from our usual breakfast casseroles. (Plus, I am a terrible caterer and had waffles and yogurt coming out of my ears....who eats just one waffle???)
For this shower, we showered her with books....fitting for a school! We also created a book for her. Each teacher completed gave her advice on what to teach your child before kindergarten. My favorite was "Before kindergarten, be sure to teach your child that the cookie found on the playground should not be eaten, no matter how good it looks."
I must say, the teachers ate more at this shower than the other one....but I still have three boxes of waffles in my freezer and four large containers of yogurt in my refrigerator. Anyone have a great recipe for toaster waffles and yogurt?
