How to Put on a Royal Themed Teacher Appreciation Week

If there ever was a better time to roll out the red carpet and treat your staff and teachers like kings and queens other than Staff Appreciation Week, I don’t know what that time is!

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is typically observed the first full week of May and is an annual celebration of the people who make our schools come alive and foster learning and growth for our children.

There are a bunch of different options that fit within the royal theme, and this post is going to highlight many of them!


An opulent display is often equated with all things royal, so don’t be afraid to go all in glamming and glitzing up your event space!

Balloons are an easy go to decoration that pack a big, colorful punch at a relatively low cost.  And this arrangement of balloons of all shapes, colors and sizes fit in perfectly with the royal theme!

This circle garland and streamer set is a fun way to carry the royal theme to the walls of the teachers lounge or other event space.

Daily Ideas


Begin the week with a luscious luncheon for all staff and teachers to enjoy.

Infuse the space with the rich feeling by building upon the atmosphere created with the room decorations by extending the decor to the tables too.

Start with an ""eye catching tablecloth like this gold one.

Then roll out a gorgeous table runner.

And then just for fun, toss a few handfuls of crown table sprinkles!

These gold and white plates will fit with a myriad of color schemes, whether you go with royal blue, purple or another color.


Deliver a personalized note to their mailbox to let them know how much you appreciate them each and every day, not just during Teacher Appreciation Week!

This fancy stationary is not only royal theme appropriate, but also a way for you to give each staff member a little love note of your appreciation.

Each staff member plays such an important role in making your school community better, so this is the perfect time to recognize their role individually.

For a less formal take on this idea, these blue and gold notecards fit the theme well! The variety of graphics on the cards is also a fun aspect to this set.


Relieve their built-up stress with a chair massage!

Chances are a parent at your school can donate their time or a local masseuse may be willing to donate their time to do 10 minute chair massages for your staff.

This is sure to be a popular option, so maybe spread out appointment times throughout the month to give everyone a chance to enjoy this luxury.


Pop a surprise in their mailboxes or on their desks.

Here are two different options that would work equally well, depending on what you’ll put inside.

This first blue and gold gift bag works for taller or bulkier items since the bag walls have some give.

This shiny gold box is a way to easily share some riches with your staff, especially if the goodies aren’t tall.

As to what to put inside, the goodie bags…

How about these delicious Ferrero Roche hazelnut and chocolate candies?

Or a bottle of de-stress spray?


Top off the week by sending each staff member home with a gorgeously designed cupcake!

The clear tops on these shiny gold cupcake liners will give the staff a peek at what they can look forward to enjoying later!

And what a treat they’ll be when topped with this gorgeous gold and silver sprinkle mix!

If you’d like the skip the hassle of individually packaging each cupcake for an on-site treat instead, these gold cupcake liners are the perfect start.

Without a lid, there’s an opportunity to top off each cupcake with a crown!

As well as the chance to create a spectacular cupcake display using this lighted stand.

Don’t forget to have tableware available too.

These napkins coordinate with the luncheon plates highlighted above.

And if you need more plates, these dessert plates match too.

Over to You!

And now you have a slew of ideas to put on the most perfect royal week of appreciation events to love on your teachers and staff.

I’m sure they’ll love being given the royal treatment for the week!
