In honor of National Coloring Book Day we have put together a handy guide to organizing a coloring party appropriate for adults or friends and family of any age
Just last week we featured Color-In Kids Thank You Notes partially because we believe in the importance of teaching thank you note etiquette from a very young age and partially because we are obsessed with coloring. You know those restaurants that have paper tablecloths and offer crayons for the kids >> well we are the first to reach for the crayons. We create giant doodles mostly because we love coloring them in.
As it turns out, we are not the only ones who love to color. Coloring for grown-ups is all the rage right now, and coloring parties for adults is quickly surpassing the popularity of the pottery painting parties ten years ago, or so. The difference is that with coloring parties, the costs are minimal. All you need is a pack or two of sharpened colored pencils and pages to color. And of course a few snacks and cocktails or mocktails. Coloring parties are a fun theme for a low key girls nights in or gal pal birthday parties or even baby and bridal showers. Just choose your coloring pages based on your theme.

Coloring Party Invitations
Invitations really do set the tone for the party! We highly recommend hand coloring just a little bit of the front of these invitations before you mail them out!
Coloring Party Supplies & Favors
Here is a little known factoid >> Currently, adult coloring books account for a quarter of the Top 20 best-selling books on Amazon. In addition to Amazon's coloring books, What Mommy Does' has also put together a collection of25 Free Printable Adult Coloring-Pages! And finally, there are lots of printable coloring pages available for a small fee on Etsy.
NEW! We also love these coloring books filled with insightful quotes and beautiful coloring pages!
And the personalized versions are finally here!
We love the idea of gifting your guests a vial of bath salts to promote continued relaxation once home. It is perfectly fine to break up the set and send each of your girlfriends home with a single vial. Add a coordinating ribbon for that extra “cute”.
