A mom named Sarah really got my attention since she had succeeded in throwing a cute birthday party for her daughter. She hosted the party in her house with a low budget yet amazing theme. Today, I’m gonna share with you her experience. Are you attracted to know more? Here we go!
Cecelia, our oldest daughter, asked for a painting party for her birthday this year. We went to a small paint cafe in April that sold DecoArt’s social artworking line, and she was completely smitten. She knew exactly what she wanted to do for her birthday with her friends, so she chose a Tacos and Cacti theme.
Now, if I could just contact the cafe and have the girls come in for the party, life would have been a lot easier. But, because that tiny bistro was four hours away from our house, I realized I’d have to do it on my own.
I was initially apprehensive, but as I became more familiar with the Social Artworking line, I became more confident in my abilities to host and lead the females, because the system truly does supply everything you need to succeed.
However, before we could start painting, we needed to set up some decorations. This party was intended to be in June, but things kept coming up and putting it back, so it wasn’t as big as most parties around here. The decor was maintained to a bare minimum (or as minimal as can be when you have a giant inflatable canvas hanging from your ceiling.)
These napkins were the starting point for the entire party. Cecelia spotted them at Winners and knew she had to have them for her birthday celebration. For the rest of the party decor, we used the hues teal, lime, navy, and orange. The napkins are stacked on top of dollar store hot dog platters, which, by the way, are ideal for serving tacos!
I made a cute greeting for the party using my letter board and added some paper succulents to the edges.
We bought some cute notebooks, holographic pencils, gum, and sweets for party favors, and stuffed each with a paper succulent. We put the party guests’ initials to each bag for a little more glitter.
One thing that sets the Social Artworking system apart from other paint parties is that it includes a blackline master of the painting and a sheet of transfer paper, allowing painters to start with an outline. It’s a lot less intimidating now! It also contains step-by-step instructions for completing the painting.
Social Artworking provided the design (Cactus Cloche), as well as paint, easels, and brushes. The paint palettes were purchased at a local dollar store. I could have used paper plates instead, but the palettes were just $1 and added a wonderful accent while also assisting the girls in keeping their colors separate.
We made one major blunder, which I will avoid in the future. We scheduled the party from 5-8 p.m. so the girls could eat tacos for dinner, which left us with very little daylight. If you’re having a painting party when the sun isn’t shining, make sure your room is well-lit.
The girls struggled to see their outlines through the wash (which was supposed to cover the whole inside of the cloche while yet allowing the outlines to show through). Because of the bad lighting, the girls had to paint around all of the details, which took a lot longer than it should have.)
Some of the females were unable to complete the task due to the lack of light. We also had to eat tacos, talk, and unwrap presents. But that was fine because it meant we’d have another opportunity to hang out! They returned a few days later to complete their cactus paintings.
I didn’t capture a picture of all the girls with their finished paintings because they finished at different times. I sincerely hope I did!
