Party Fit for an Artist!

I can’t really believe it, but our little girl is already 5!  How time flies is just unreal.

This year we did an art themed party for Kazia, she loves arts and crafts so it was very fitting for her.

We had lots of yummy food and treats for everyone to eat.  There were hot dogs for lunch, with a rainbow fruit platter (which I put together but forgot to take a picture of, boo!), a veggie tray, and an assortment of baked goodies made by me.  Marshmallow and Rice Krispy treat “paint brushes”, macarons, sugar cookie “paint palettes”, and the art related cake of course.  And we also had pink and yellow lemonade, and water to keep those creative minds flowing.

We set up kids tables for the painting work stations, with paint brushes, palettes for paint, aprons, canvases and rocks for everyone to paint.

After the kids painted and had some lunch, Kazia did her gift opening and we had some cake.  The cake was a funfetti cake with raspberry buttercream filling.

Once the guests were ready to leave, each kiddo was given a paint pail of art related goodies.  Inside each paint can favour there was a paint brush, mini notebook, crayons, mini paint tube and paint pot, paint splatter temporary tattoos, fun stampers, a stained glass window hanger, a bouncy ball with an art picture inside, a rainbow loom bracelet in rainbow colours, and a cute little Thank You card.  And they also got to fill a little goodie bag with some sweet treats in rainbow colours.

And now for all the pictures …

Waiting for our guests to arrive!

The fondant paint brush I made sitting on top of the “paint” splattered cake board.  It was coloured chocolate that I melted and then splattered on the board, I’m surprised my kitchen wasn’t covered in chocolate haha.

Guests deciding what to have to eat …. and a shot of the paint splattered paper lanterns above the table.  Those were fun to make but splattering paint in good clothes is a no no …. oops!

Kazia's Art Party (web)That was a super fun party.  It was a lot of work to put together, but at the same time I had a blast organizing a dessert table and coordinating it all to the theme of the party.

Most of the decorations I got at the local dollar stores.

The clear paint pails, bouncy balls, paint palettes, paint splatter tattoos, napkins, and palette shaped plates were from an online site called Oriental Trading.

The paint drip stickers were from Memories are Sweet.

The Thank You cards were from Apple Paperie on Etsy.  And the Thirsty Artist drink labels were also from Etsy at Petite Party Studio.  I also put paint splatter stickers on the drink cups which I got on Etsy as well from Tip Top Supply 4U but I didn’t get a photo of them.

And I found the kids painting aprons on eBay.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out Kazia’s party!
