An art or painting party has become a fun and popular theme where kids can get creative. It is often seen decorated in a rainbow colour scheme however you can also go with a Pantone colour palette look. View the real parties section at the end of this blog post to view different ideas including a parisian artist party!
I hope you enjoy the selection and remember to view the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory for vendors you can use – especially for a theme such as this which you won’t find specific items for in party stores – the vendors in the Handmade decor category can create items for you to suit what you are after!
