My daughter’s favorite activity is to get messy, so I thought what better theme for her 3rd birthday than an Art Party where she and all her friends could go all out and get really messy! Party goers enjoyed painting small and large canvases, as well as wood and paper craft activities, and artist themed food and drinks. Attendees were instructed to "dress for mess!"
Since it was a painting party, I used a modified rainbow palette of jewel tones colors. I used empty paint cans and paint brushes (painted to match), artist palettes, and paint “splats” to carry the theme throughout. I knew I wanted the party to look like “Ariella’s Art Studio”, so the backyard was covered with drop cloths and the kids were free to paint anywhere.
Modern, simple, clean
I loved how the paint can and paint brush display on the mantel turned out. It look a long time to add all of the vinyl paint drips to each can, but I loved the overall look. I also loved the fondant cake decorations, and adding the paint splats all over the house. I also loved displaying some of the food and drinks on real artists palettes.
At first I was searching for a lot of items in the exact color scheme I was looking for, but after having trouble finding coordinating items, I ended up using artist spray paint to custom color a lot of things.
