Lex turns SIX next weekend- but due to schedules etc, we celebrated her sweet soul this weekend instead. When we were in the early planning stages- we just stalked the minted website until we stumbled across the perfect invitation and theme. rainbow art party for my child who keeps telling me she’s going to be an artist when she grows up. boom. perfect. I will admit I was expecting to be able to do the whole party outside- because we live in so cal- and the weather is usually highly predictable. but alas- rain was scheduled so we bought a giant tarp, and set it all up inside- and not one single surface got paint on it (which is good, because I wasn’t looking to add a statement wall to our living room).
okay lets talk decor.
I got all my supplies from shop sweet lulu. they literally have a tab for different themes (like rainbows). I got the cake from a local delicious bakery (susie cakes) but added the sugar rainbows to give it a touch more pizazz (they’re also from shop sweet Lulu). And this gorgeous tassel banner is from my new favorite glam fete! It matched the colors PERFECTLY (and you can use the code HELLOERIN15 for 15% off!!). so yeah, find it HERE.
ok. so at the party I had the girls make aprons with fabric markers, and then they all got to paint canvases to take home. they had a BLAST. it was easy- and kept them entertained for an hour!
I got everything off amazon- because its the best ever.
^ heres k. painting with her favorite color. BLACK.
seriously. thats it. easiest party EVER. and I think every party we host from now on will be rainbow themed.
one of the dads at dance before lex’s party asked if everyone should wear overalls since it was a painting party. . . and that fully solved my dilemma of what lex should wear. but I also kinda want her to wear these overalls every single day of her life.
