cakes + castles + crowns

HANDMAKERY group 3

HANDMAKERY: A Children’s Art Studio and Two+Two, both locally owned businesses in beautiful Carbondale | CO, partnered together to create a magical birthday celebration with the theme, cakes + castles + crowns!  It was the perfect pairing for celebrating Perrin’s 4th birthday!  Perrin is the daughter of Two+Two’s co-owner, Juliet Jone

The princess herself, celebrating the magical age of four, dressed up with a cape + crown + a sparkly princess dress!  Together HANDMAKERY and Two+Two had an exciting two hours planned for 12 little girls!

HANDMAKERY art supplies

A few of our whimsical art-making supplies for our magical cakes + castles art project!  The birthday celebration began with art making as HANDMAKERY brought together painting + storytelling + mixed-media!  Each aspiring artist created a magical cake that was also a tiered castle!  After art-making, each child enjoyed pin the tail on the donkey + a castle piñata!

HANDMAKERY painting

HANDMAKERY:  A Children’s Art Studio is a hands-on, art enrichment program for children & young adults offering specialized classes, camps and workshops.  Let the painting begin!  We used a monochromatic color scheme for clouds behind the magical cake + castle painting!  Each guest was able to take home their creation to be reminded of this special day in April!

    You gals should quit your day jobs and become professional party planners!
    This party looks amazing! I love the castle art, all the little details, and your photos are incredible as always. One question, do you do adult birthday parties too?!
