Our new Picasso Cupcake Stands!

Do you have the next Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh ? Then an Art Party might be just the thing for them when celebrating their next birthday! What a fun and unique party that is full of fun inexpensive things that you can do. This party can be geared for younger or older children! One of the things we try to do at Mommy Mogul is provide innovative, fun, and unique gifts and merchandise! We decided that an artist's color paint palette would look adorable as a cupcake stand!

We were right!

This stand is made out of 3/4 inch plywood and painted a deep chocolate brown color.
I cut it out myself! I love power tools!

All you have to do is have the bakery make your cupcakes with the solid colors using a straight tip (so they look like mounds of paint on a painter's palette)!
We think it came out pretty perfect!

The idea of the giant tube of paint that you see in the picture came from setting the mood. We saw this in one of her parties and loved it! I wanted to buy a few when I saw them, but upon closer inspection I realized I could make it! And I think I did a pretty good job. But the idea was ingenious and I can't take credit for it. Check out Jamie's website at www.settingthemood.blogspot.com and her business website is www.settingthemoodbiz.com

Art Parties are lots of fun because they are colorful and there are so many different things you can do! I think little chalkboards (on desk top easels) with guests name on it would be great place cards.
Empty paint cans are VERY inexpensive to buy at hardware stores and you can have different colors of fabric coming out of it to resemble paint. You can stack them up in the center of the table for a cute centerpiece. If your budget can afford it, a smoch for each guest would be fun and a great party favor!
Mommy Mogul is in the process of designing an Art Party table for our store. So stay tuned as we come up with more great ideas to share.

Don't want to try the power tools, but you would love the Painter's Palette Cupcake Stand? You can buy it at www.mommymogul.etsy.com

Until next time,
Make the most of the time you have because you can't get it back!
