Fall is birthday season in our house. We have all 4 birthdays within about 2 months of each other. Last week my girl turned 7. She is in love with art so we decided to throw her an Art Birthday Party.

DecoArt offers this great art package called Social Artworking. It comes with everything that you need to create a masterpiece…canvas, paints, instructions and even easels for your little budding artist. I knew this would be perfect for her party and DecoArt supplied me with everything I needed to host an amazing art birthday party.
Here are the highlights of the day:
We had 11 of her friends over. Guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign and colorful streamers and aprons. Beyond the streamers, they entered the “art studio” (aka the living room).

Once everyone arrived, they painting began. DecoArt offers many designs with their Social Artworking package. My daughter chose an ice cream design that is part of their Junior package for younger kids. I really loved seeing the difference in each girls’ painting.
For the party food, I served Rice Krispie treat paint brushes, cake balls on paint pallets, fruit pizza and “creative juice”.
The cake was in the shape of a paint palette. My daughter requested a layered rainbow cake like last year but to be honest I just wasn’t up to doing that again so I’m very relieved that she was ok when I suggested this cake.
Another little detail that I loved were the paint chip utensil holders that I made. Easy and free!
I kept the decorations simple and colorful. I used white background so the colors would pop. I hung simple (and cheap) streamers, made small art easels out of popsicle sticks to hold the food labels and filled plastic paint cans with shredded tissue paper for more decor.
I thought about filling the paint cans with candy but since my daughter’s birthday is a week after Halloween, I figured most parents are candied-out! I know I am and I didn’t want to be left with a bunch more candy. I also made easels for each girl to keep track of whose painting was whose when they were placed outside to dry.
After cake and presents it was time to wrap things up.
The girls each got watercolors for favors. They also got to take home their aprons, paint brushes, pallets and of course, their masterpieces.
