It’s time to set up the gallery showing for the parents as they come to pick up their child. The parents get to ohhh and awww while the kids show of their artwork. Party guests can play Pictionary and do the frame photo-op while you set up the art gallery showing. We had another wall reserved to hang the artist profiles and another table available to serve the food. Don’t forget to play some fun, artsy music at the party and during the gallery showing. Music sets the mood and always makes a party more fun.

Hooray, we hope you enjoyed this art gallery party as much as we have enjoyed sharing it with you. This party is now available for purchase in our shop.

And yes, all the photos for this party were by Nicole Hill Gerluat. A special thanks to Dusti Ondryas, Megan Dunford, Megan Lewis, and Cristie Mabey.

Ever wonder how to arrange flowers? I am in love with this flower arrangement. If you would like to re-create this bouquet that we used for the Art Party yourself, here are the easy steps to follow.

Tools: serrated floral knife, pruners/garden clippers, 20-24 gauge floral wire, paper scissors

Flowers: pink gerbera daisies, dark pink roses, red pixie carnations, orange tulips, yellow ranunculus, yellow mums, kermit poms, bear grass, blue hydrangeas, purple liatris

A few tips from Megan: Keep the flowers in cold water until you are ready to use them. Strip the stems of excess foliage. Secure smaller bundles of flowers with a rubber band or floral wire. Trim the ends at an angle. You can tweak the flowers as you go until you get the right look. Have fun learning how to arrange flowers for yourself.

This party is for sale in our shop.

As the guests arrive have them make a paper chain from pre-cut strips of colored paper and glue sticks. This chain will later be used for decoration at the gallery showing at the end of the party. Once most of the guests have arrived they can start at the first craft station: drawing their artist self-portrait.

What’s an Art Gallery Party without a cake that’s a work of art? With a little planning you can make this cake like a pro.

1. Divide your cake batter into 8 different bowls. Color each bowl of batter a different color. Our colors are: red, pink, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, and purple. Bake each layer in an 8″ or 9″ round pan. You will take turns using the pan over and over with different colors. Unless you have 8 round pans. Make sure to grease and flour your pan or put a round of parchment in the bottom to prevent sticking. Let each cake cool slightly before removing. Turn out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling.

2. Once the cakes have cooled completely, freeze each layer individually wrapped in plastic. This will make it easier to assemble and frost the cake.

3. Once the cakes are frozen you can start layering your cake in a rainbow pattern, putting frosting in between each layer.

4. Frost the outside of the cake as well. More complete instructions are included in the Art Gallery Party PDF–available for purchase in our shop.

This party incorporates the colors in the color wheel. We used all colors across the spectrum with a huge dose of white to keep everything bright and crisp.
