Water Color Birthday Party

Image placeholder title

We love birthday parties and we also love the idea that children's parties should be filled with lots and lots of color. This water color themed party is just the ticket for the little artist. Best of all, it's inexpensive, easy to put together, and looks adorable!

We hung a multi-colored miniature triangle bunting and kept the table clear so that guests had room to create. The color-drop magazine organizer held plain pieces of paper and a small colored mason jar (found at the dollar store!) kept different sized paint brushes at the ready. The sweet art print from Lucy Darling gave the room some color and was a fun surprise for guests to take home at the end of the party.

Each place setting had a clipboard with plain paper, a frame with the guest's name inside, a jar of water, paint brushes, a q-tip, and water colors. The frame is made of basal wood and can be painted, too!

In the center of the table we put a tray filled with paint brushes, oversized q-tips, a mason jar filled with water, paint brush markers, and some extra water colors. By giving the party guests options, inspiration can strike in many forms!

For snacks, we filled pop corn boxes with colored gold fish. We made pigs in a blanket and filled a bowl from Fishs Eddy with the extras. Something really fun is to create a rainbow treat box. First, you need an oversized pill box. Snip off the tops with the days of the week to create the container. Here are some ideas for the coordinating foods.

As favors, guests receive the art prints from Lucy Darling, their paper and picture frame creations, plus these clear bags filled with miniature water color sets and a few different sized paintbrushes. Another fun treat is this water color palette coaster from Fishs Eddy. It looks great on desks or added to your child's gallery wall. It also serves as a spot to keep a water glass when they are painting at home.
