Let’s all remember way back…..to your 1st middle school dance. What kind of music was playing? Did you have refreshments? Were the boys awkwardly lined up on one side of the room and girls on the other?
It’s funny how the perspective changes when you are the parent of a middle school teen rather than the teen. Last Friday night my oldest daughter attended a Valentine’s dance, complete with hired DJ, photo booth and concession stand. Rather than being the one at the dance wondering who was going to ask who to dance, I was the parent busy hoping the boys would keep their distance from my daughter!! All was well, Miss M. had a wonderful time with her friends. She is student body president so she had to work at various times through the dance keeping her busy…..I like busy. 🙂
So how does all this relate to my review? Glad you asked. At the door where the admission table was set up, Miss M. used some cool Chalkboard Planter Buckets from DOT & BO to hold candy for entering guests. It was a small token of student counsel appreciation. Small chalk board spray painted planter stakes on the set of three buckets added character to the welcome table. Since my buckets are Red, they’ll coordinate well with so many holidays, and I can envision them holding eating utensils or goodie bags.
I love scavenging for unique and interesting decor for my home. And, anytime pieces can pull double duty to be used at a party or event I’m thrilled. At DOT & BO you can find curated modern inspired accessories, furniture, art work and so much more. Laid out in themed series, each collection on the site contains pieces that are style specific, yet ready to mingle with any eclectic spirit. Unlike some other home decor sites, there isn’t restraint on how long the items remain available, so you have time to think about your purchases. I’m one who will visit a store multiple times and look at the item I’m thinking about purchasing to make sure I still adore it each time, so this feature is welcomed. Dot & Bo also offers a 30 money back guarantee on most items.
