I cannot believe it but my oldest daughter, Charlotte, just turned 8. Please tell me that my children are aging but I am staying the same (ha!).
Charlotte wanted to have an art party but I was not quite up to the task of putting one on at our house (work deadlines have gotten the better of me). Hence, our local pottery studio was the perfect venue.
With aprons sewn by my mom, the pottery-painting table looked quite festive.
The invitation was a take-off from the ATC Swap logo I designed (which is also available as a party invitation on Shutterfly) – I love design multi-tasking!
When the girls arrived at the studio, they first picked out their desired piece of pottery and, with a bit of instruction, set to work cleaning and painting. I loved listening to them chat and craft.
Water bottles with coordinating labels looked cute on the snack table.
Charlotte's favorite food is Oreos (I cringe) so we created an Oreo pyramid, secured together with dabs of royal icing. It was a big hit. Boxes of organic milk somehow made me feel a bit better about serving Oreos.
The guests left the party with aprons and a bag of paintbrush cookies and homemade lollipops. Their finished pottery pieces were delivered a few days later with a thank you note from Charlotte tucked inside. All in all, a totally successful and relatively fuss-free party!
