Easy Invite

A creative party needs fun invites! Wrap our free printable around a pack of colored pencils and hand deliver. Want to pop it in the mail? Simply fold and place in a standard envelope. 

Evening Event

This grown-up gathering is the perfect after-dinner ending to the day. Invite the girls over after the kids go to bed for an evening of unwinding complete with drinks and dessert. 

Stunning Centerpiece

Fresh flowers are the star of this colorful centerpiece. To create, use three wide vases and divide your flowers by color. Start with the darkest red florals and continue through the rainbow. Look for flowers that have large, bold blooms for maximum impact. 

Set the Table

This party starts with the place setting. Greet each gal with a wooden monogram, our free coloring sheets, a fabric pouch, and fabric marker. During the party, they can color, paint, and craft their party favors. 


Create: DIY Fabric Pouches

Coloring isn't just for pencils and paper! Whip up a simple patterned canvas pouch (we'll show you how!) and let your guests do the decorating with fabric markers. They're the perfect size for a small cosmetic bag or travel tote. 

Create: Decoupage Monograms

This DIY monogram jumps right off the page! Your guests can use their own coloring page to create this pretty project before they leave the party. 

Dessert Table

Separate the dessert and cocktails from the crafting. A rolling island or side table creates a designated food area and keeps the party flowing. 

Easy Sweets

No one has to know how easy dessert was! Display frozen pies on white cake stands for the prettiest presentation. Mini rainbow flower arrangements mirror the table centerpiece and tie the tables together. 

DIY Drinks

Keep things casual by letting guests play bartender. Set up a DIY drink station complete with bubbly, glasses, and colorful rock candy sticks. Look for flavored rock candy to create a truly custom cocktail.

Candy-Coated Cocktails

Colorful rock candy keeps the rainbow theme going through cocktail time. Pour the champagne over them just before serving—the rock candy will dissolve as it sits. 

Colorful Pencils

Group your colored pencils and markers by color. It will keep things easy for your guests and adds a pretty pop to the table. 

Coloring Page: Graphic Geometric

Let your art take shape. Triangles and diamonds create a beautiful geometric pattern perfect for coloring. Showcase the coloring page in a simple fame for a gorgeous piece of angular art. 

Coloring Page: Jewel Tones

This cute coloring page is filled with doodles! Bold jewel tones help the pattern pop. 

Coloring Page: Sweet Florals

These bold blooms create a pretty patterned coloring page. Pretty them up with traditional pink hues or try adding pops of red, orange, and yellow.
