Orlando 2016 TpT-Teacher Meet Up!

25 July 2016

Our 2016 Teacher Meet Up in Orlando was so much fun. This was our 5th year hosting and thanks to our very generous event sponsors (Teachers Pay TeachersGoNoodle, and many others) over 700 hundred teachers enjoyed a night filled with hugs, laughter, and of course prizes! This meet up would not have been possible without the support of all our 2016 Teacher Meet Up Sponsors. 


Please take a look at all our generous sponsors, see the prizes they donated, and give them some love for supporting teachers!!

No meet up would be complete without our amazing planning team. These ladies helped with planning, getting sponsors, filling 700 swag bags, and setting up! We couldn't do it without everyone of these amazing ladies!

Black and White Polka Dot Classroom Decor Ideas

21 July 2016

I just finished a huge Black and White Polka Dot Decor bundle and thought it would be a great time share some of my black and white polka dot decor ideas.   

The fabulous thing about black and white polka dots is that they never go out of style and you can find black and white polka dot items just about anywhere!  I purchased a ton of black and white polka dot fabric from Jo-Ann's and made all my seat covers and table cloths.  I used a staple gun to cover the chair below with polka dot fabric.  It was an easy fix!

The bench cushion below was also made with fabric from Jo-Ann's.  The "Elementary Cool" pillow is from Dirtsa Studios on Etsy. 

I purchased a ton of black and white polka dot ribbon.  I believe the ribbon I used below, to secure my pocket chart, was from Michaels.

Not into sewing?  I purchased this tablecloth below from Amazon {click here} and then covered it with two yards of clear plastic from Jo-Ann's.

I like to mix brights with the black and white polka dots.  You can find the Bright Polka Dot labels {HERE}.

HomeGoods is always a great source of decor finds!

My classroom library is labeled in all black and white polka dots!  You can purchase the classroom library book bin labels {HERE} & the leveled library book bin labels {HERE}.

The bright sturdy bins below are from Big Lots a few seasons back.  I have also seen some at Ocean State Job Lot. 

Another decor tip I learned from Melanie of Schoolgirl Style is to use wrapping paper as a background!

When decorating your classroom, don't forget to decorate your door!  I like to layer my borders.

Here are some more decor packets you might be interested in, just click on the images:

*This packet is included in my Black and White Polka Dot Decor Bundle

I would love to see photos of your polka dot classroom.  Feel free to tag me on social media @EricaBohrer!  Thanks for stopping by.
