  9. Michaela says:

    This is such a cute idea!! Did you find those canvases pre-printed with the same stencil or is that something you did yourself? I love the idea of having all the kids paint the same thing and at the end of the party you can look at all the different variations!!!!

  10. Karly - Pullingers says:

    Kara,
    I really like the popcorn idea with the cones and candy melt. Wear did you purchase the silver metal stand and the blue stand?

  12. Kelsie says:

    Kara, this is one of the cutest birthday party ideas ever! But how much did it cost you? I am definitely on a budget… and I am looking to spend as little as possible! Thanks for all the wonderful ideas! Keep it up!

  13. Jennifer says:

  23. Jamie says:

    Lovely party ideas. Could you please tell me where I can find the easels?

  24. Erin Peterson says:

    Hi I was wondering for the easels for the canvases, did you rent them or buy them? And did you get a bulk pricing deal if you purchased? If so from where? I don’t want to have to spend $10-18/per that’s a pretty big cost. Thanks in advance. :)
