stephmodo: Nie's Back to School Feast

Nie's Back to School Feast

• 31 August 2010

I love Nie Nie's back-to-school feast this year (and every other year really). She is such an inspiring mother and the fact that she goes to all this effort to do something so utterly special for her children makes her a great example to me. What a fine, family tradition, don't you think? Maybe next year I'll have my act together and make something like this happen.

p.s. did you see her fabulous basement makeover by Alice Lane Home? Uh-mazing...both her living space and the store, which is a healthy mix of luxury and affordable ($15-ish) pieces.

  1. She truly is inspiring and I simply love the crowns she made. I hope to be as cool a mother as her!

  2. i love this tradition...i'm with you, need to start doing this to kick off the school years.

    nie is endlessly inspiring!!!

  3. I love the tradition too. We started it with our girls in Kindergarten last year only we do a first day celebration instead of a night before celebration.

    Here's the link to this year's first grade celebration:

    It was a good excuse for me to learn how to make origami flowers!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
