Etta had been asking for an art themed birthday party so when I saw a groupon for The Social Paint Brush I snapped it up. She was able to pick out which painting her friends would paint at the party out of many different paintings. I was surprised she picked a dancing owl since that is Chloe's favorite animal, not Etta's. Here are a few highlights from the party.
|For some reason her friends love picking her up and carrying her around.|
|A pre-party beverage for Chloe (hence the favorite owl).|
|Art themed dessert: Rice Krispie Treat Paint Brushes, palette cookies (I did two different kinds, with M&Ms and others with the candy melts I used on the paint brushes), and colorful cupcakes on palettes.|
|Smocked and ready for painting.|
|Our instructor for painting, Eric.|
|The only boy allowed at the birthday party (minus dad of course), Kade.|
|Chloe loved painting her owl!|
|All done and even signed.|
|One happy birthday girl.|
|The finished products. It's fun seeing how each one made theirs slightly different.|
My little girl...she's getting so big.
