Art Catering brings art and fine craft projects to make all celebrations extraordinary.


"Mary is a true master at giving groups of children a time and place to enjoy and create!  

Mary "art catered" a childrens' reception for 10 great nieces and nephews at our home while their parents went to my son's sit-down dinner  wedding reception at the Asticou Inn.  The kids were in good hands -- art projects galore, picking blueberries, and great fun with Mary!  She's a pro at this --  the kids never missed a beat and did NOT want to leave when their parents arrived to pick them up!  Both parents and kids had a great time at the wedding and two separate receptions!

What do you do with 10 children between the ages of 5 and 9 who would be bored at a sit-down dinner reception?  HIRE MARY LYMAN!

Wish we had photos to show -- everyone was so happy!"

"For my sixty-fifth birthday I wanted to do something fun and creative with some of my friends.  After talking with Mary, we decided to have a potluck luncheon and then an afternoon of creating needled felted dolls.  Everyone had a blast and even those who were apprehensive about their creativity, created a work of art to take home.  I would highly recommend “art catering” to anyone who enjoys sharing fun and creative activities with their friends."

Do you have children coming to a wedding that need their own creative reception?

Are you throwing a birthday party where making innovative projects would make it more festive?

Are you planning a retirement party for a friend or relative who would enjoy an artistic gathering?



Art Catering is a joyful, creative adventure for people of all ages.  It brings imaginative and original projects to any  event.  


Wedding related events in particular can be difficult for children and, in turn, for their parents. Art Catering brings a host of creative, educational and entertaining projects to where ever they are needed at these events, creating a flexible solution to childcare.


Birthday parties can be more delightful with an artistic flare.  No matter what the age of the person I will design  innovative projects for everyone's enjoyment. 


I will work with you to help make your celebration or party sensational.
