Are you exploring birthday party ideas for your kids? I love throwing parties, which you will see if you visit my parties tab. You will find a variety of ideas for both boys and girls. My sister-in-law always throws amazing parties also. I love that she lets me share her talent here.
There are so many amazing ideas here for any budding artist. From food ideas to decorations, this party creates the look you want with colors that pop. Another fun idea would be to get little canvas’ for kids to paint on as a special craft activity.

This cute pom pom banner hung over the fireplace. Notice the Crayola Washable Markers on the ridge of the fireplace as well. She used plastic table cloths to make the pom poms. She had rainbow colored stock paper and used a circle punch to cut out the circles. She found skinny, raised white letter stickers at Hobby Lobby and spelled out “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” on the circles.
For an art party, the table decor is important. The center piece was a wooden art pallet with small white bowls that contained the colors of the rainbow. The white paper plates were set on top of rainbow colored scrapbook paper. Each plate had our take home gift, an adorable mini paint tin filled with gumballs. Each place setting also had a Mini Wooden Easel and mini paint canvas that were hand painted in the rainbow colors. She used white, skinny raised stickers found at Hobby Lobby to put everyone’s name on the canvas for a place card.
Colored Pencils in rainbow color order were found around the edge of vase. She used a white cloth tape measure to finish off the top and the bottom. I’m not sure her strategy, but I would use mini glue dots to attach the pencils.
I love how the menu and food was displayed. We were having “paint chips”, Van Gogh veggies, create your own masterpizza, creative juice, pop of color, Rice Krispies paint brushes and create your own cupcakes. How clever is that menu? You can see the rainbow of balloons adding pops of color along the serving bar. Each balloon is anchored to a container of glue.
I wanted to make sure that you knew what it looked like to “create your own masterpizza” and eat Van Gogh veggies. She had the makings for the pizza. The individual pizza crusts were the canvas, and we were able to spread our sauce using the paint brushes. She had an array of topping as well. You can see the color vegetables available for the meal too.
She made adorable Rice Krispies paint brushes. Find out how to do that here. The cupcakes became a canvas too with a myriad of sprinkles available for decorating. The cupcakes were served on plastic paint pallet.
Is your own creativity inspired by this art party? I hope you have fun celebrating the children in your life.
