Art: it is what we do, everyday. So much so, we now have bins and bins and bins of crafts. We spend our summers in art camp. We have an art gallery in our house. We color. We draw. We paint. We collage. We explore different mediums. We want to be an artist when we grow up. We dream. We imagine. We create. So, we throw an art themed birthday party.
What better place to throw this themed bash than at a gallery. The Heights Theater is an event venue by night and Gallery M Squared by day. So, it is perfect. Plus, they put your name up on the marquee. Sweet.
Cakesdoodledoo hooked up some awesome invitations and cupcake wrappers. Quite simply, they rocked. Clear paint cans filled with colorful gerber daisies created playful centerpieces.
The future picassos of the world arrive and were faced with the challenge of visiting six art stations. No fear. They succeeded. It started with a smock station, which were decorated and in no particular order, they enjoyed sand art, acrylic on canvas, oil pastels, water color, and an art collage station. Each station represented some of Madison's past art as an example. Once the individual artwork was complete, it was displayed for all to enjoy.
If you did not know, art is intense and works up an appetite. Starving artist kits equipped with creative juice fueled the brain. And if that wasn't enough, a display of treats placed in front of a paper-chain wall was sure to tempt the tastebuds. It was a table filled with art palette cookies, rice crispy brushes, and art inspired cupcakes all created by Michael's Cookie Jar. Delicious.
There is nothing better than throwing a party for the people I love. There is also nothing better than to have great friends to enjoy the memory with us.
Happy 7 + 3 Madison and Austin.
(The girl is now infatuated with owls and wants an owl birthday party next time. Truly hoping this is short-lived as I think she might have actually stumped me).
Thanks Laura Burlton for spending the afternoon with us and capturing the memories.
