Art Party Inspiration

March 04, 2013

In the amazing words of Pablo Picasso, ” It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”   That said, let your creative juices flow and enjoy our inspiration board for a perfect art party.  Keep reading below the image to learn where to get all the details for each idea or product. (We regularly update our pinterest Art Party board – so be sure to follow us for all the latest!)

1. This fun invitation is printed on both sides and can be purchased at Swanky Press.  There are matching notecards for thank you notes…and return address stickers, too!

2.  J and J Home is a blog filled with all sorts of craft and fun ideas.  They threw a rapunzel party and had the guest paint “masterpieces” as the party activity.  You don’t have to go to the expense of buying canvases for each child – they used cardboard boxes and set it up to look like an art gallery.

3.  These  little paint chip notebooks are genius!  Meow Kapow Shop on etsy made them with paint sample chips. I think these would be an amazing Art Party favor.

4.  I just love this crayon wreath by Create and Decorate on etsy.

5. Fruit Kebobs (with a great recipe for rainbow pancakes) can be found on Quick-Dish.

6.  These creative favor bags are a fabulous idea – the kids can create their OWN favor bag!  You can find them at Inchworm Goody Bags on etsy.  I might have the guests decorate the bags as an activity, and then fill them up with the goodies from a piñata.

7.  This idea comes from the Monkey See, Monkey Do blog.  Visit them to find out how to turn your empty baby food jars into bright crayon organizers.  I like these for the art table at the party OR as a centerpiece for decoration.  (And, of course, you can use them in your child’s craft area when the party is over!)

8.  Cake balls on an artist’s palette – too clever!  The idea came from Paper and Cake, and the yummy cake balls were made by Terri’s Treasures.  Paper and cake published a great party guide for an art party – it’s definitely worth checking out.  Don’t miss Terri’s blog for all sorts of other cake pop and dessert ideas.

9.  A great activity would be painting t-shirts.  The image came from Sara’s Party Perfect .

10.  This idea is from a party featured on A Little Sussy blog.  You’ve got to check out this party if you want some inspiration – it’s absolutely beautiful!  I love her idea of using crayons in jars as decoration.

11.  Plates from Polka Dot Market.
