Ever since my children could hold a paintbrush, they’ve loved art! There’s just something about an easel, paint and the freedom to put their dreams and ideas down on paper that captivates a child’s creativity. That’s why one of my favorite birthday themes for young artists is a Painting Party! I can’t wait to share all the gorgeous details of this artistic 5th birthday party with you. Take a look…
We have a well-worn and well-loved painting easel in our playroom and every time I see it, I’m reminded of the simple joy my children derive from painting. It’s a beautiful thing to give a child a blank canvas and some paint! They imagine the most fantastic scenes and paint with confidence every singe time. If you have a little artist at home, why not throw them a Painting Birthday Party with their friends? Go ahead and grab our Party Planning Checklist then begin scrolling through these lovely party pictures to begin planning your next event.
Artist Painting Party Invitations
Every great party starts with the perfect invitation and this party theme means you can choose something bright, colorful and creative! Whether you go with “Dress for a Mess,” “Calling all Artists” or “Art Party” wording, any of these invitations would give you a solid foundation to build from.
Painting Party Decoration Ideas
The creativity that Top Notch Celebrations and Kimbitious Kreationz put into Kyndall’s party was astounding! There are so many special decor details, it’s hard to know where to look first! Let’s start with the guest tables, though because the rainbow colors and decor really catch your eye.
The white tablecloth was the perfect canvas for a rainbow colored balloon centerpiece. Did you notice that a silver paint can appears to be pouring red paint (in the form of tissue paper) out onto the table to start off the rainbow centerpiece? So creative!
Each place setting featured an artist’s palette plate, custom napkin with a sparkly silver five, a clear tumbler with matching bow, as well as paints and paintbrushes packaged beautifully in a clear paint can ready to use on that white mini canvas in front of them. I love how each place setting featured it’s own unique color too.
Each white chair was wrapped in a beautiful matching bow and a keepsake party favor bag hung on the chair so the children could carry home all their goodies after the festivities concluded.
Painting Party Dessert Table Inspiration
The creative and colorful decor carried on to this fabulous paint themed dessert table! Surrounded by a gigantic, show-stopping rainbow balloon arch, the dessert table was covered in a red tablecloth and really popped against the white backdrop.
There are so many details – and desserts – to love on this table! The personalization that was added with a splatter painted giant number five and Kyndall’s name covered in paint, brushes are art supplies is so sweet.
And let’s talk about this amazing cake! Perfectly themed for the party, Cara Bella Creations By Shauna designed a masterpiece dessert! I love the purple paint pouring out on top and dripping down the sides of the cake. I’m sure Kyndall and her friends went crazy for this design!
Other sweet treats on the table included custom sugar cookies, cupcakes topped with edible painting palettes, brightly colored themed donuts and rainbow colored popcorn packaged in mini paint cans.
And one of my favorite treats that doubled as a party favor were these gourmet candy apples, decorated and packaged to perfection!
Art Party Activities & Favors
The birthday girl and her guests enjoyed painting their own masterpieces during the party and were able to fill their goodie bags full of art supplies and sweet treats on their way home. This is the perfect type of event where your party activities and easily double as your party favors and keepsakes!
I absolutely loved all the beautiful elements to this party and hope you found inspiration as you plan your next event! Be sure to Pin this post for later Party Planning too and share it with a friend.
