Putting together Audrey's Watercolor Party was so much fun I wanted to show a little behind the scenes of the preparations. To create the decorations and details, Audrey and I hunkered down in my craft room and got to work. She painted white poster board (for the large number four we placed over the fireplace), paper cups, and a happy birthday banner while I dyed party streamers (more on that tomorrow).
To keep continuity we stuck with the same color scheme Audrey chose for the invitations but other than that, there were no guidelines. Audrey painted and painted to her hearts content while we chatted about super important things. Things like why Sam has hair all over his body, why red and yellow make orange and how she wants a van + a house + a baby for Christmas.
It was a fun afternoon and one I hope she'll always remember. I know I will.
