Silly Splatter Shamrock Shindig (finally)

I know it's almost Easter
 BUT I wanted to share the fun party we had to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

a little background:  I've wanted to have a messy art party for the longest time.  
It just so happened that St. Patrick's Day was coming up 
- tada - 
the Silly Splatter Shamrock Shindig was born!

I whipped up a simple invitation on Word and emailed it all the lizard & ladybug's friends.  
Tacky??  Maybe, but it got the job done & it was free :)

The actual party plan was pretty simple.  
Get some paint.  Mix it with water.  Find things for the kids to paint with and on.  
Add kids and go!

To satisfy my need to 'create' a party, I got some white tees and goggles for the kids.  
And, of course, hung them on our fence with rainbow colored clothespins :)

Before the kids started playing, I made sure to have plenty of fun snacks for them.
skittles, lucky charms and rolos

candy dipped Oreos

rainbow licorice and sour strips

cupcakes  (printables from Amanda's Parties To Go)

and some Shamrock Soda (idea & printables from The Crafting Chicks)

Now onto the fun part!!!
Here's how it was all set up:
2 big canvas drop cloths were taped to our brick wall 
(ignore the fact the bricks need pressure washing)

a small dollop of paint and fill with water = paint spray!

A big table held blank canvases, foam brushes and ice cube trays filled with paint.

buckets filled with paint water & sponge balls.  
Nuff said!

And they're off!!

March 2013

it was like this most of the day!!

all the artwork :)

Kiara, of Keaton Photography, took all of these pictures
and was able to get one group shot :)

I think (hope) they all had a good time!
I saved the goggles and tees so we can do it all over again....sometime soon!!!

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do think that you need to write more on this topic,
it might not be a taboo subject but generally people don't speak about such issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

Legging tights also look best with girly shoes, such seeing as flats, heels as well as boots.
Lastly, I want to take the time to declare Elan International garments
