Inspired by Saige, an American Girl Doll with some awesome hobbies, Beth Kruse of Beth Kruse Custom Creations created this AMAZING Ombre & Watercolor Horse Party for her daughter, who has similar interests to Saige! Focused around horses and painting, this oh-so-pretty party included a fantastic canvas painting activity, featuring a horse silhouette in the center. After the guests were done painting their canvases, the silhouette stickers were peeled off, leaving them with beautiful, negative-space works of art. Just check out the cool gallery they created in the images below!
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Sunset-inspired colors, highlighted in the pink and orange ombre cake & bright party printables
- DIY glittered paintbrushes + cute painter’s palettes to display individual cupcakes and toppings
- Watercolor mini buntings adorning the adorable DIY paper lantern ‘hot air balloons’
- Chocolate dipped ‘paintbrush’ rice krispy treats & a DIY ‘chalkboard’ horse backdrop made from foam core
PARTY DETAILS as told by Beth…
For my daughter’s 9th birthday, she asked for the American Girl doll of the year, Saige. Like my daughter, Saige loves to paint and ride horses, so we decided to plan her party around those things!
For the food table, we highlighted Saige and her favorite things. The “chalkboard” horse backdrop was actually black foam core! All of the printables I designed for the party were made to look like watercolor to highlight the painting aspect.
The main activity at the party was painting a canvas with a horse cutout. The girls painted the whole canvas and then when they were done, we peeled the horse off and the white horse shape was left.
