Our baby girl turned 5 last month…still so hard to believe. Ella is an artist at heart. She is constantly coloring and creating. So, when it came time to plan her birthday party an art party was a no brainer.
When planning I started to pick up some painting supplies here and there but just became absolutely frozen at the thought of coming up with a design for the children to paint, how much paint I would need, etc. Then I came across a genius company called Social Artworking. You simply choose a design from their adult or junior paintings, tell them how many will be painting, and they send you the painting instructions, easels, canvases, paint, and paint brushes. It was so simple!
Since the activity was taken care of I could focus on some of the fun party details. I ordered aprons from Ebay and used my Cricut to cut the children’s names out of vinyl and apply them to each apron as a party favor.
My talented friend, Ally, loaned me the rainbow backdrop that she created out of leis for her daughter’s hot air balloon party.
All printables were purchased from Paiges of Style.
Mini paint sets served as favors as well.
I had considered making these paint brush Rice Krispie treats but came across a vendor on Etsy that sold them and decided to save my time. They were fresh and delicious!
The lovely Seana Hon created the cake and palette cookies for us. I didn’t get a photo of it but each layer of the cake inside was a different color.
The art table setup before the kids arrived:
My sweet friend, Veronica, who is a former teacher (and one of the most creative girls I know) offered to help run the kids through the painting instructions so that we could document the occasion.
The kids did a great job. I love that everyone’s painting turned out differently!
We wrapped up the party with cake and presents. Thank you to our friends & family who celebrated with us. Our sweet girl had the best day!
