Does your birthday boy or girl love all things artistic? Plan an art-inspired birthday party full of colorful activities, themed snacks and decorations, and fun memories. Give the guest of honor and guests an interactive, hands-on experience as they express their artistic side. Better yet, each guest will be able to take home a memento of the day with a finished art project! Here are a few ways you can create the perfect artsy birthday party:
Invitation: Keep it stress-free with an free online invitation. Punchbowl offers so many colorful designs, including these three artsy invites. Easily track and manage RSVP’s without the time and expense of printed invitaitons!
Activities: Make sure to designate a workspace for the guests to get creative. Whether it’s a long, shared table or many smaller tables, set it up away from food and drinks. Provide all the basics for a kid-inspired masterpiece – washable paints and paintbrushes, markers, crayons, and plenty of paper or canvases. Give kids the freedom to create whatever their hearts desire! Hang finished artwork for all to see, and make sure each guest gets to take it home after the party is over.
Food and Drinks: Have fun with the menu! From a multi-color candy buffet to a paint palette filled with colorfully frosted cupcakes, the options are endless. Serve several colors of juice (or even dye some water) in clear plastic cups. Create a vegetable platter that looks like a rainbow, and let guests decorate plain sugar cookies with brightly colored frosting.
Games: Keep it crafty! Have guests decorate paper plate masks and then act out the characters – anything goes, from wild animals to cartoon characters. For a sweet guessing game, fill several sizes of glass jars with jellybeans (one color per jar). Beforehand, count how many are in each and guests can guess how many are in each. Who ever comes closest to each without going over wins the whole jar!
Decorations: The more colorful the better! Use several colors of streamers to give the room a festive feel. Go for all the colors of the rainbow, or use fun combinations like hot pink, purple, and lime green, or bright blue, teal, and yellow. Solid colored paper plates are an easy way to add even more color, with matching forks, spoons, and napkins. Have plenty of balloons on hand, too!
