colour party

color throw

color!

all coloured up

Several weeks ago, I thought, "Wouldn't it be great to have a colour party where we celebrate creativity, diversity, and the many different cultures that make up Ten Thousand Homes?" From there, we started planning a party full of colour with creative outlets galore.

happy hello!

so colourful nice hair

When I showed up to the party, casually late as always, I saw a sea of white. Instructions were followed to a tee. "Come as a blank canvas." Between the all-white and the coloured kool-aid that our US friends brought over, well, let's just say that I'm glad no one who didn't know us showed up. {Kooky...}

The biggest prep for this party was making the colour powder. It wasn't hard. I just only had so many trays for drying the stuff. I followed this recipe. Super easy! Oh, and it actually did wash out of clothes rather easy. Our other stations included...

  • A Twister game station with a prize punch board for the winners.
  • A painting station with a very cool art piece to paint on created by one of our staff.

  • A writing station with a real typewriter. People always seem to find those old typewriters super fun.
  • A photo booth station with those cheap, plastic tablecloths as the backdrop.
  • A music station complete with a keyboard, drum, and guitar.
  • A colouring station with good, old fashioned colouring books.
  • A luminary station for creating some outdoor ambiance.

Of course, there was dancing, games that involved silliness and shaving cream, glow sticks to adorn ourselves, and FOOD! Our friends from the US prepared a fantastic feast of kebabs, both fruit, veggie, and meat, rice, and banana pudding!

We kept decor simple and colourful. Balloons, streamers, buntings, cupcake paper garlands, and polka dot garlands.

So fun. So easy. Lots of laughs. Lots of smiles. That's what it's all about!

  1. Amazing, Jen! You don't happen to have that recipe for banana pudding by any chance??? I'm lost without American pudding mix for things like that, and my soon-to-be-four-year-old has requested banana-something for his birthday dessert.
