My ideal party would be colorful, sweet, and creative inspired by my recently released book, OUTSIDE THE LINES: An Artists’ Coloring Book for Giant Imaginations. I created a rainbow art party for my daughter, Lulu’s fourth birthday and still feel excited by that day:
songs about rainbows
Rainbow bow tie pasta
Fruits and veggies in a rainbow shape
I made the Barefoot Contessa’s coconut cake. It’s not the cake shown in the photos (by a family friend), but I split the batter and used food safe dyes to create different colored layers.
or, Rainbow layered cupcakes – my friend Sherise’s recipe
Italian shaved ice
Lemonade in different fruit flavors (strawberry, kiwi, mango, etc.)
We’re ecstatic that curator, hustler of culture, smart girl and tiny iron fists Mama, Souris Hong-Porretta, would contribute this exhuberant idea for a party. Lulu is one lucky little lady! Outside the Lines is an amazing collection of illustrations by some of our favorite contemporary artists – a visual treat no matter your age – much like this colorful celebration.
