Today is a BIG day in our house!  It is Grace’s first day of high school.  She is a ninth grader…a high school freshman.  I’m still trying to figure out how summer flew by so quickly, let alone how she can be old enough to be in high school!

The first day of school calls for a special breakfast treat!  The tradition in our house is a monkey bread cake.  This gooey combination of sugar and cinnamon covered dough eases any anxiety about the first day of school.

To give the monkey bread an extra special touch for today, I made a small bunting for it using washi tape in my daughter’s school colors.

I anchored the bunting into the bread using wooden skewers inside the paper straws for more support.
