I've got some fun for you this Friday!!
My nine year old daughter wanted a paint party this year for her birthday, and if you know me at all, I didn't even think about going somewhere to do it. Why not do it at home?!
First we came up with these cute invitations we made out of paint chip cards. We made a little pocket and then put all the info on a paint brush and tucked it into the pocket.
We picked up some white cups and plates and cut out some fun vinyl to decorate them and make them look like paint palettes (plates) and like paint buckets (cups...that was my daughter's idea!). I LOVE the way they came out. Maybe even one of my favorite things for that day! :)
Then we got some extra candy in little buckets for decor and to add to the cupcakes later.
I was going to buy easels, but decided against it and just used tubs to prop up the canvases and that way they could also hold some of the supplies. (BC really? Would I use a bunch of easels very often? Love saving money!)
This party was all about creating, so even the cake (cupcakes on a paint palette...so easy!!! and fun!) was up for creation. The girls used the candy in buckets to decorate their colorful cupcakes.
Overall, I think it turned out GREAT and not too over the top. In all reality, it was probably one of the easiest kids' party we have thrown and one of my favorites too. I love how each girl was so happy and proud of her own painting and how they all turned out different.
