Lisa Frank Inspired Art Party

Lisa Frank Inspired Art Party

Please tell me I’m not the only millennial mama so excited to see the return of the 90s?!?! My daughter turned 7 on the 7th, and had asked for an epic home art party. I whipped up the easiest at home art party with a subtle tribute to Lisa Frank, the Queen of 90s kid art.

Party Details:

  1. Individual Desserts-jars with strawberry vanilla icecream topped with whipped cream and gummy candy
  2. Art Project-wooden wind chimes to paint
  3. Kitchen set up as the art room and Dining Room set up as the food table

😉 Easy Peasy

The girls had so much fun, and of course our Balloon Shop was a hit with the decorations. The balloon wall and table runner made from my childhood paper fortune tellers were my absolute favorite!! What do you think?

I’m not an elementary teacher. I’m not equipped to homeschool. These days in quarantine have left me feeling like I’m failing this mothering thing. I had the brilliant idea last weekend to search through the attic for party supplies and carnival games. Throwing a party is my mothering talent, and thanks to volunteering this past year at the school as the PTA-Program and Events “person”, I can set up a party in under 30 minutes.

I wanted my kids to have fun and I wanted to feel like I was succeeding at something. Our favorite family vacation spot is Disneyland, so I grab all the attic things to turn our backyard into DIY Disneyland…or at least make it feel like we were actually getting to go somewhere fun for the day.

I handmade all the signs, set up the games, popped the popcorn, and created a special Disney drink. Then the moment to show the kids what I was up to came. I just knew they would be so excited.
