Jordyn's birthday party came and went. Her theme this year...an Art Party. It was a blast. I'm not sure who had more fun...the kids or me because I thoroughly enjoyed the preparations that went into this party. There are WAY too many cute ideas that go along with an art party. I had originally called one of those paint your own canvas places only to find that a party would cost me $250.00 for 10 kids. That's it. No food, no cake...nothing. For the same amount of money I did my own party with 15 kids, a whole lot of adults, food, cake, decorations, a ton of art supplies, a large home-made easel, smocks and goodie bags. A whole lot more bang for my buck so a win ~ win for all! If you are looking for a party theme that appeals to boys and girls an art party is a must. The kids had so much fun painting. Some took longer to paint than others so once the kids finished painting they ate and did typical kid stuff in the cul-de-sac like riding scooters and playing chase.
Each birthday party that comes and goes is always so bittersweet. I adore watching my children grow and reach new milestones, but I sure do hate that time is flying by so fast. My baby girl is turning 6 tomorrow so today I secretly am soaking up every last minute of her 5th year.
Enjoy the party pictures!!
