Can you name the last time you devoured a Fruit Roll-Up? How about eighty? That’s how many stretchy, fruity, delectable childhood treats were incorporated into the centerpieces at our ModAcademy event where guests were greeted with a day of fashion industry knowledge, and surrounded by Schoolhouse Rock!-inspired decor. Though the ModAcademy audience was geared toward recent college grads, the decor was created with all ages in mind!
Do you have a party to host that could use a school-inspired touch? Look no further than your local flower market, grocery, and secondhand store to pull together these retro school-themed centerpieces that will charm everyone from candy-crazed children to the young at heart.
Retro School-Themed Centerpieces
What you’ll need
Listed above is everything that went into making the ModAcademy centerpieces. From the flowers to the candy, these centerpieces make a big, bright impact without costing much. The biggest spend you’ll incur is looking for one or more vintage thermos cups, but if you stick to sites like eBay or Etsy to curate your selection, you could very well luck out and find a set of twelve for cheap like we did — think twenty bucks! The ModAcademy centerpieces are simpler than getting an A in Phys. Ed., and once you have all of the materials, you’ll have a ball making them as wild and wonderful as you’d like!
