We made puffy paints for Miss Grace’s Art Studio 2nd Birthday Party! This was a huge hit! Everyone loved the thickness, feel & even shine of the paint from the salt.
Miss Grace turned TWO on Monday! Cannot believe my baby is officially a big girl now. What joy she has brought to our family!!!
We celebrated several days early with our closest family members by throwing Miss Grace an Art Studio Birthday!!! This was quite a party. I had the whole party setup and ready for messy art fun at a local park, but I began having some pregnancy issues and my husband and I packed everything back up and headed to our church’s activity center to reset it all back up in only an hours time- whew!
The art supply castle was a huge hit in decor- everyone had something to say about it!
I loved the little composition notebook party favors I threw together after not being able to find what I originally intended.
Decorations for this party were very simple. I had over a dozen mason jars filled with art supplies, several chalkboards, many construction paper pendent banners and of course construction paper paper chains!!!
At the park I had also set-up for giant canvas watercolors & painting as well as a shaving cream & paint pit, but location changes didn’t allow for these activities. Posts to come soon from us doing them at home though 🙂
All the little ones AND even the adults greatly enjoyed creating all sorts of masterpieces! This was probably the most relaxing and laid back party we’ve had by far!
Miss Grace enjoyed her party more than anyone though! She was a little birthday diva!!! She sang happy birthday to herself because we didn’t start soon enough, we had to blow out candles two times and keeping up with her as she opened her gifts was almost impossible. I’m still getting, “I love my party, thank you mommy” even now!
Thank you to all who attended and celebrated with us!
Tomorrow, the 12th, Little Miss will officially be FOUR! We celebrated a little early with our friends and family by throwing Little Miss a MERMAID birthday party at a local lake just minutes from our home.
I had such fun decorating and preparing for the party. Here is a little peek at our decor & menu.
Menu consisted of: PB&Jellyfish, Goldfish, Sea Cucumbers, Crab Legs (carrots), Sushi Sandwiches (pinwheels), Deep Sea Oyster Pearls (grapes), Snickerdoodles, Marshmallow Pops, Blueberry Muffins & Donuts
Little Miss loves activities so that is something I certainly wanted to incorporate into her party…
SEA SHELL PAINTING
TREASURE MAP DRAWING
SAND DOLLAR WANDS
PIRATE SHIP PLAY, WALK THE PLANK & SEA SHELL DIG
A party wouldn’t be complete without CUPCAKES! Sam’s club did an amazing job baking and icing our cupcakes and cakes, BUT I’m pretty proud of my mermaid pearl decorating!
Little Miss preparing to blow out her candles!
A June party just wouldn’t be complete without SNOW CONES for every one!
We had an amazing celebration of our Little Mermaid with many of our family and friends! Watching Little Miss play with those she holds dear to her heart at her party made me realize how grown up she is getting. This party is such a wonderful memory!
Little Miss’ BIG birthday present was her surprise playhouse, but I’ve really been wanting to get her a CD player for her room. There she is opening it at her party!!!! It is definitely a huge hit, she is constantly listening to music and books in her room.
Now that this celebration is over its time to get my ducks in a row for Miss Grace’s 2nd birthday in July!
