Retirement Party for an Art Teacher...

This was a lot of fun to plan...I hot glued yellow pencils to the perimeter of a bin and created a basket full of school supplies which became the centerpieces...by the way, this is a great teacher gift for the begining of the school year! The glass candle votives were also covered... crayola crayons were hot glued as well and a bow was tied in the center. The menu's were artist palettes-cut out of natural construction paper and primary paint colors were painted on to give more detail...The napkin rings were dark green plastic rings (shower rings to be precise) and a crayon was hot glued to the center of the ring...

  2. That is so sweet! Any teacher will be touched if they receive this wonderful gift idea. A retirement party does not need to be extravagant. All it needs is just a little creativity and you'll come up with a fantastic retirement party for the one who matters to you.

  3. My sis informed me about your web site and how great it is.
    She’s right, I am actually impressed with the writing and slick design.
    It appears to me you’re just scratching the surface when it comes to what you possibly can accomplish, but you’re
    off to an excellent start!

  4. Wow, these ideas are brilliant. Thanks a lot for sharing the photos here. My daughter is just 15 and she loves art. So I needed such great inspirations for her art themed birthday party that I will host at the local LA event venues. You have given me a lot of ideas through this post.
