Modern Rainbow Art Studio Birthday Party

Painting parties don’t always have to be messy (though some kids might disagree with that statement)! Monica Thomas of Discovery Lab styled everything while Cristina Gagliano of Studio Four 13 Photography photographed this wonderfully Modern Rainbow Art Studio Birthday Party for little Bella’s birthday. I love all of the clean lines of the set-up contrasted with the bright, rainbow colored flowers, decor & desserts. And seriously, those dessert could not have been done more perfectly — possibly one of the best rainbow layer cakes I’ve ever seen!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Chocolate dipped rice krispie treat paint brushes + a rainbow layered birthday cake ‘masterpiece’
– ‘Bella’ painted paint can garland + lots of frames & art supplies as decor & for the photo booth
– Rainbow paint palette cookies + rainbow cupcakes, cake pops & pantone cookies on palettes
– Felt flower decorated aprons + a My Little Pony painting activity

Fall Inspired Vintage Back to School Celebration

With the start of a new school year, a great way to get the kids excited for their new classes, teachers & of course, back to school shopping, is to throw a little surprise party for them! Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties and Candace Miller from Lillypaul Designs get an A+ for their cleverly styled Fall-Inspired Vintage Back to School Celebration! I love the old schoolhouse in the background & the school subject inspired dessert table sections (especially the ‘cafeteria’ lunches). Parents everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief that summer “boredom” is now over ;).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– School themed joke cards & encouraging words for school lunches + ‘explore’ & ‘learn’ themed party flags
– A world map dessert table backdrop + metallic globe cookies & vintage globe decor
– Number 2 pencil candy skewers, addition & subtraction flashcard cookies & ‘molecule’ sixlet test tubes
– Vintage books, red apples, wooden crates & rag tie bunting + a vintage school desk bench

So when a Dutch friend of hers wanted to include Miffy in her son’s first […]
