Today I am sharing an adorable art party with you, hosted by Emily Welch of Magnolia Creative! Magnolia Creative is a sponsor of P is for Party and be sure to check back soon to learn more about her great business!
Emily was a little stumped on what theme to choose for her daughter's 3rd birthday and sweet Audrey did not have any idea either. It finally occurred to Emily to base the party around something she and her family are around daily - ceramics (see her designs at Magnolia Creative)! Emily went to Hobby Lobby and found a bright stripe fabric which served as the color inspiration and invitation design.
The tables were covered with brown butcher paper to lend to the art them. Each little guest could chose between a cat, dog or horse to paint and then Emily had each piece glazed and fired and then sent to Audrey's school for her friends to pick up.
Emily put together a cupcake station equipped with assorted sprinkles. She also custom designed water bottle labels, drink flags and other coordinating products which will be available soon in her shop!
Do you remember seeing the amazing balloon wreath tutorial on How Does She?! Well, Emily gave it a whirl and ended up designing her version...balloon topiaries! Tutorial coming soon!
Since Audrey is severely allergic to eggs, Emily needed to bake her daughter's cake and even gave fondant a try! The ceramic birthday plate was also made by Emily and is available in her shop!
Custom coloring sheets with an illustration of the birthday girl...how special is that?!
Another personal touch at the party was the handmade tissue garland by Emily. The garland was hung on aqua twine from The Twinery.
Glittery party circles matched the glitter on the invitations...

Audrey's custom birthday shirt came from BowDacius Baby.
The fun favors included crayons, mini drawing pads, bubbles and suckers and of course a cello topper to match the other paper goodies!
Thank you again Emily for sharing this creative art party with us!
