I always get excited when I see a rainbow party, especially one with a unique twist… like this spectacular Rainbow Paint Party from Petite Party Studio that’s absolutely bursting with creativity! My favorite detail has got to be the fabulous rice krispie treat “paint brushes” – super clever AND easy – 2 of my very favorite adjectives for party details. ;)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

- Painters palette cookies made with m&ms and vanilla frosting
- “Artist Tools” utensil packets in awesome orange chevron bags
- Masterpieces by all the guests using paints & Spin Art!
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Shannon…
It seems that art and crafts has become a common request in our home these days. So it was no question when it came to planning my son’s 3rd birthday party what the theme was going to be. Instead of the traditional “art” party we decided to keep it more specific and make it a painting party and since painting is his favorite art activity I knew it would be a hit.
Painting, painting and more painting! The kids were each given a smock and a table was set up for some serious paint time. Once there masterpieces were complete, they were hung to dry and put in a colorful frame to take home. Another popular paint activity was the spin art machine. The kids went crazy for this thing… (note to self) buy two next time.
I kept it simple. Hot Dogs, Brauts, potato salad, macaroni salad and yummy fresh fruit… in every color of course.
This is where I really wanted to have fun with the theme… fun, colorful and covered with sweet treats! The backdrop is a super simple (and cheap) DIY project and something the kids can help with too. Paper chains have been around for ages and are a great way to decorate a party. The cake was displayed on top of an art stool that I found at Hobby Lobby and painted red to match. The latter-like stand was also a fun way to display some of the party goods. This too was a Hobby Lobby fab find and was great for holding the custom treat bags, “artist tools” and some candy dots. The “artist tools” were a fun way to display the serving wear. I used chevron bitty bags and filled them with cutlery, napkins and paper straws in coordinating colors. The clear paint cans were my favorite party element. These were found at Michaels and filled with candy in every color and finished off with a personalized printable paint brush label.
The cake was a simple white cake with cream cheese frosting and surrounded with homemade paint palette cookies. These cookies are super easy to make, using sugar cookies formed into the palette shape and m&m’s for the colored paint dots. The push-up pops were a fun way for the kids to enjoy their own personal layered birthday cake. These were layered mini cupcakes with cream cheese frosting between each layer….. YUM! The rice crispy treat paint brushes were not only the centerpiece of the table, but were the party favorite. I was so excited when I came across the pre-made rice crispy treats, no baking necessary and such a time saver. Simply place an ice cream spoon into the rice crispy treat and dip each one into the colored candy melts and voila!
