Painting Birthday Party

For my daughter’s 9th birthday party she wanted to get friends together for a painting party. Because the weather was iffy, and we definitely needed a set-up that gave every artist their elbow room, we turned to Painting with a Twist, a local painting party franchise.  It worked out really well, as we had space for painting, eating, and were even able to set-up a bar and snack area for parents!

We were able to bring in all the decorations, food and drink, allowing us to truly personalize the space.  I used a roll of wrapping paper as a table runner, found coordinating disposable plates and napkins at Party City and used paint swatches to hold all the cutlery together.

and I made these fun rice krispie treats by dipping them in chocolate and adding sprinkles:

and I also made these fun chocolate chippers per her request to bring in as treats for school:

and the cake was a nail biter, as I had never worked with the “dripped” chocolate technique and wanted it to look like paint dripping out of a can:
