What could be more enjoyable than making your own artwork? It’s more fun if you do it with your buddies! (Also, a glass of wine never hurts.) How to arrange your own Gold Coast paint and sip party is detailed here.
This, I believe, is why the entire social painting movement is exploding. Perhaps you’ve heard of Paint and Sip Gold Coast night or Coffee and Canvas nights. It’s also known as Social Picture or Social Creativity, and it’s an excellent opportunity to spend some “girl time” while being creative, especially if you believe you lack artistic aptitude and would never attempt to paint a whole painting alone.
The main disadvantage is that it may be rather costly, and you may not be able to find a studio that provides it in your area.
Not to worry; I’m going to show you how to hold your own paint and sip Gold Coast party and even guide you through the process of making an aspen tree painting, so you can lead your own group of adventurous artists-in-training.
If you’ve ever had to reserve a location, such as a hotel or conference space, for a birthday, anniversary, bachelorette, or other type of party, you know how expensive it can be, with large deposits and minimums and frequently charges “per plate” or a minimum drink tab.
One of the most appealing aspects of a paint and sip Gold Coast party is that each attendee purchases their own admission ticket. Additionally, the organizer may pay for all of the tickets, which expedites the procedure. The other advantage of a paint and sip Gold Coast party is that guests are permitted to bring their own beverages and food, which is not permitted at most other locations (bar, hotel, etc.).
Quite frequently, the party organizer will take care of the majority of the food and drink, whether they purchase it from a local grocery store or hire a caterer. Alternatively, if each visitor provides their own food and drink, the organizer may easily establish the terms through their party invitation, which is emailed to each attendee.
So, you’d want to throw a fantastic paint and sip Gold Coast party? The organizer will then have three key responsibilities: setting the food and beverage terms, selecting a painting for the group to paint at a paint and sip Gold Coast studio, and sending out the invitation so everyone can sign up (and make sure they do so).
Painting Food for a Party
You, the organizer, are the most knowledgeable about your visitors. If you’re providing food for the entire party, one of the most convenient options is to have it delivered. Pizza is a popular menu item for painting parties since it can be ordered in a variety of varieties and delivered directly to the studio. Bear in mind that some individuals prefer thin crusts while others prefer thick ones; it’s also a good idea to order one without meat for your vegetarian buddy, etc.
Another item that is frequently seen is a “crock pot.” Whether used to warm “queso” for nachos or to keep a particular bean dish warm, they may be convenient, cost effective, and available in a variety of sizes. Whatever your dietary preferences, it’s a good idea to consider “finger foods” and diversity.
Drinks for a Painting Party
It’s a good idea to provide a variety of alternatives for visitors who prefer alcoholic beverages. While white wines such as Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio are very inexpensive and are generally served cold, red wines such as Merlot or Pinot Noir are typically served at room temperature. These are the whites and reds that are most frequently seen during painting events. You may or may not know each member in the group, but it’s still a good idea to provide diversity. When it comes to beer, most beer consumers have a preference, which you may inquire about in advance or they can bring their own. And don’t forget to provide juice and other non-alcoholic refreshments for more visitors!
Decorations for Parties
A little planning and a few cash may help your celebration go off with a boom. Themes are common; we’ve seen “Las Vegas Nite” décor complete with phony poker chips and dice, as well as “baby-themed” baby showers. Visit your neighborhood party store and choose a theme for your painting party to add an extra element of fun and atmosphere!
Choosing a Painting
When choosing a painting, keep your attendees and the party’s theme in mind. If there are several couples, try to choose something “neutral” that will appeal to everyone. Is your group very social? Then choose something simple that will allow them to paint, eat, drink, and catch up throughout the event. Is this an event for a group of graphic artists to bond? Then perhaps you’ll want to select something really complicated and intricate.
Be an Outstanding Host / Organizer
Arrive on time and begin setting up; you want your guests to be wowed upon their arrival! Connect with everyone — you may not be familiar with her fiancee, so approach him immediately and ask to be introduced to put him at ease and make him feel welcome. Take several photos with your phone and post them on social media; everyone enjoys seeing a nice celebration.
Following the Painting Party, express gratitude to your visitors and provide them a link to your social media photos from the event so that you can all enjoy the memories online together!
For most couples, painting is a common activity, and the finished artwork usually complements each other. It’s amazing how the two canvases complement one other to make a stunning piece of art! So, what sort of masterpiece are we discussing? On our events calendar, you’ll find a variety of paint-themed activities for couples to work on together, including gorgeous DIY wood board signs, humorous self-portraits, and seasonal landscapes. Pick on a paint night topic that will excite you, and join up for the most interesting and unforgettable date night ever.
