Party Recap

My daughter LOVES to paint so it was only fitting to have an art party! This website provided LOTS of inspiration!


Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    Tessa and I of course....with homemade splatter paint shirts could there be anyone else?? ;)

  • Desserts

    With a party at 9:30 I couldn't bring myself to serve cake so donuts it was! Not sure the sugar count is any different ;)

  • Activities / Games

    Painting canvases and decorating magnetic foam frames

  • Budget

    I plan my themes at LEAST 6 months in advance so I can spend the LEAST amount possible. This way I am always looking for stuff to include....and in MOST cases I get it all on clearance!!!

  • Party Favors

    The magnetic foam frames and canvases they created...and a few people got chocolate paint palettes ;)

  • Best Moment

    WhenTessa arrived...though we had been telling her all about her party the look on her face was total SHOCK and EXCITEMENT!

  • What People Ate

    The kids ate Mini Pancakes {bought packs of frozen ones...ssshhhh!}, the adults ate egg & sausage burritos, there was fruit salad and various fruit loaves

  • What People Drank

    OJ & AJ {apple juice}, Coffee, Milk and Water

  • Most Touching Moment

    Tessa was born 15 weeks premature. She has mild cerebral palsy and a speech disorder. She had been practicing blowing out the candles for WEEKS. When she was able to do the "real thing" it was pretty emotional!

  • Funniest Moment

    Watching people sneak donuts even with a sign that said DO NOT EAT! ;)

    Can you tell me how you managed to suspend the paint cans? I am having an art party for my son next month and love how you set up the table with the cans of paint. Sooo colorful. Just love it.

    I used Wilton candy melts and a piping bag. Drew the shape on the back if the wax paper the flipped it and piped the melted chocolate on. The colored "paint" are m&ms :)
