Madison and Austin produce art everyday of their lives.  Since the beginning of their time, coloring books really did not exist for them as a blank piece of paper generally allowed for their imagination to freely express their art.  They express art everyday.  They color. They draw.  They paint.  They collage. They explore different mediums.  Madison, specifically wants to be an artist when she grow up. They dream.  They imagine. They create.  So, an art themed birthday party it is for this seven and three year old.

What better place to throw this themed bash than at a gallery.  The Heights Theater is an event venue by night and Gallery M Squared by day.  So, it is perfect.  Plus, they put your name up on the marquee.  Sweet.

Cakeadoodledoo hooked up some awesome invitations and cupcake wrappers.  Quite simply, they rocked.  Clear paint cans filled with colorful gerber daisies created playful centerpieces.   Swift and Company provided the rentals while Elegant Beginnings created a beautiful backdrop of different colored linens throughout the space.  

The future picassos of the world arrive and were faced with the challenge of visiting six art stations.  No fear.  They succeeded.  It started with a smock station, which were decorated and in no particular order, they enjoyed sand art, acrylic on canvas, oil pastels,  water color, and an art collage station. Each station represented some of Madison's past art as an example.  Once the individual artwork was complete, it was displayed for all to enjoy.

If you did not know, art is intense and works up an appetite.  Starving artist kits equipped with creative juice fueled the brain.  And if that wasn't enough, a display of treats placed in front of a paper-chain wall was sure to tempt the tastebuds.  It was a table filled with art palette cookies, rice crispy brushes, and art inspired cupcakes all created by Michael's Cookie Jar.  Delicious.

Happy 7 + 3 Madison and Austin.

Thanks Laura Burlton for spending the afternoon with us and capturing the memories.
