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.
This post is sponsored by DecoArt. All opinions are 100% my own.
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.
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.
Are you ready to throw an amazing Art Party? Consider using DecoArt’s Social Artworking package.

So fun!! I love all the bright colours and the theme, which of course is amazing b/c not only does it take care of the activities at the party, but promotes creativity!
I want to be invited to an art birthday party! This is AWESOME!!

This party seems doable…which is what I need right now! Did you buy the jars and the paint trays at deco art as well?
The jars are Starbucks frappacino bottles that you get at the grocery store. I drank A LOT of them and hoarded the bottles 🙂 The paint trays were from Michaels but you can probably get them at any craft store.
What a nice party! Love the ideas and the little details! Where did you get the paint cans? Thanks!!!
Hi Erika! I think I ordered the paint cans from either Oriental Trading Company or Amazon.
Love this party! I’m looking at the designs and they give an estimate for time needed to complete the painting. Some take an hour and others are said to take 1.5 hours. Would you say these times are accurate? How long did it take to complete the paintings at your party? My daughter keeps picking designs with the longer time and I’m a little worried it may be too long. I’m also trying to decide on the length of the party as well. 🙂
Hi Becky! Our party lasted 2 hours and the girls had plenty of time to finish their paintings. I would say it probably took them about an hour to paint. During the second hour, we had the food and opened presents.
I love this!! My daughter is turning 7 this month and she wants to have a painting party too! Where did you get the easels?!
The easels came with the DecoArt Social Artworking package. You can also find them at craft stores such as Michaels.
Such a fun party! My daughter just asked to do an ‘art party’ for her 7th birthday and I stumbled across your page while searching for ideas. Did you have to have a bottle of paint for each child, or did the 4 oz bottles cover it for all 11 kids?
The 4 oz. bottles covered it all. I had a few extra bottles of white.
Any chance you have a printable for the watercolor gifts? Super cute!
Hi Kelly! I’m sorry but I don’t have that printable available for download.
If you are still looking for the watercolor gift printable, I just uploaded them to my Etsy shop and you can find them here >>> https://www.etsy.com/listing/279804634/art-birthday-party-printable-collection
I wanted to see if I could get the watercolor favor tags?
Hi Lindsay! Thank you for your interest in the tags. I don’t offer them as a free download but you can get them in my shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/279804634/art-birthday-party-printable-collection
Hi – Love, Love, Love this idea. My daughter is turning 10 in July and this is our theam. Where did you get the name tags for each popsicle easel and the tags that say “Thanks for making my party a Masterpiece? Where did you get the labels for the creative juice? and the plates and napkins?
Hi Dana! Thanks so much for your kind words. I made all the printables. I’m thinking about putting them in my Etsy shop soon. I got the plates and napkins from Walmart.
I just “favorite” your Esty page. If you can have the easel label’s, masterpiece label’s and an Art Party invitation on your Esty page, I will buy they all.
Hi Dana! These are now listed in my Etsy shop.

Hi Did you buy a “kit” for each child? I’m trying to judge how far the paint and the actual design will go and how much to buy
Hi Jenny! There is a party planner portion on their site where you can enter in the number of guests and it will suggest the amount of items that you need. I think that I used 1 bottle each of the colored paint and 4 bottles of the white paint but it will vary depending on te picture that you choose. There were about 10 girls at the party.
How do the patterns work? Do they print out and you give to each child or??
There is one pattern that you stencil onto each canvas. I stenciled the canvases before the party started.
I was actually wanting to do an art party for my daughter and saw this and this helps so much. I do have a question though, how long did it take for you to receive the items? And you said you had to stencil the pic on the canvas that they provide?
I would allow a few weeks for delivery. Definitely plan early and don’t wait until the last minute. I think the kit came with a special type of paper that allowed you to trace the design directly onto the canvas.
