My Christmas Painting Party was sponsored by Social Artworking. As always, the opinions shared are mine alone.
Hello there, happy first day of December! Are you ready for the holidays? I have such a fun party idea for you today… perfect for the holidays or just a fun girls night! Have you ever been to a painting party event? I’ve been to a few and let’s just say the pieces of art I created (I use the term “art” very loosely) are not adorning anyone’s walls. If anyone would have told me that I would go from painting party drop out to actually guiding my friends through a party of my own I would have laughed. Fast forward to now, and when the nice people at Social Artworking asked me to host one, that’s exactly what I did. Lol’ed, in fact!
So first let me tell you about Social Artworking. This is such a fun concept! First, you pick out the design you want to paint, then you use their party planner guide to calculate what supplies you need based on your number of guests. You can either use one of their consultants to teach your class (you can find them here) or order online for a DIY style party. We did the Spread Cheer design, you can browse all of their fun designs here.
We did the DIY style party… I sent out an invite to let everyone know what we would be doing (you can download a blank printable version of my invitation here); there were 8 of us total.
I was so excited to get out my snowman decorations and host my girls for some painting, eating and sipping! 😉
You guys! This was so beyond fun! When I tell you that you don’t need to be an artist to end up with a beautiful painting, I mean you don’t need to be an artist to end up with a beautiful painting! All of my friends walked in saying the same thing I did, that this would be a fun get together but that their painting would end up in the closet or even in the trash. So if we can all do it, truly anyone can!
You get everything you need to host your painting party in the Social Artworking kit… canvases, easels, paint brush sets, paint, the design template, transfer paper and very detailed instructions of the steps of the painting.
The template and carbon transfer paper make the project so easy! You just slide the transfer paper under the template and trace the outline of the painting onto the canvas and follow the step by step directions from there.
After the canvases were traced, we were ready to go!
Every single painting turned out amazing! I was so tickled when my friends texted me pics of where they hung their paintings. Before everyone left they were already asking when we can do it again. Soon ladies, soon. 🙂
So cute, right?! Feel free to give my girlfriends a shout out in the comments. 😉 I’d love for you to check out the designs and tell me which party you would want to have!
Not only was this a blast but I have a painting I am actually proud to display.
Yay Farrah I’m so glad you had fun! Your painting turned out amazing! xo
Great idea for having a cozy painting party at home instead of at a bar. I will do this.
Awesome Eileen! Let me know how it goes and I’d LOVE to see pictures! 🙂
Very neat..a great way to personalize decorating my home! I look forward to trying this craft!
Thank you Peter! I’d love to see pictures of your finished project! 🙂
