And the extra cupcakes are in my new cupcake holder (I've been longing for one and my husband bought it for me for my birthday)!
We found some really cute invitations on Walmart.com, and for $0.28 a piece, I customized them with a picture of my girl and I ordered 8 cards -- 1 for each girl and an extra for me! I love getting photo cards -- they are personal, they are a great keepsake for my girls' scrapbooks / baby books, and you'd pay more for a regular package of invitations!

My girl loves art and this year we cleaned out our basement and rearranged it to make an art studio for our girls. She wanted to host her party down there, and I decided that since I have off-white carpet in the dining room, where the big table is, that the art studio was a better idea with all of the paint!! My husband set up a long folding table next to the little round table in the art studio. My daughter covered both tables with newspapers which made for super easy, super quick clean up after the party!

One of my favorite elements of the art party? My daughter's outfit! Never one to shy away from a theme, I suggested that she take an old pair of jeans and paint them to wear to her party! She had fun doing that on Friday night -- I think she did a pretty good job!
