Fun Ideas for Hosting a Painting Party at Home

By Megan Price

Painting parties started taking off a few years ago, and there’s no end in sight! There’s something that people love about creating their own art pieces. And it’s even better when you have a talented artist as your teacher! But what if you’d rather stay in the comfort of your own house? Host a painting party at home! 

A painting party is a fabulous way to celebrate a variety of events. All you need to provide is the space and water to clean up. And maybe some snacks and wine! The painting party companies will bring everything else, including aprons, canvases, paint, and paintbrushes. Whether your groups are beginners or experts at painting, the teacher will tailor the finished product around your needs.
 

Girls’ Night In

Grab your closest gal pals for a unique way to celebrate with a “paint and sip” night! Hosting a baby shower? Send the mom-to-be home with some adorable decor for her new nursery. Know a bride who prefers a low-key celebration? Set up a cozy space for some wine, gossip, and paint. Need fresh ideas for your women’s group? A painting party at home is a great option for any get-together! Peggy M. from Houston, TX planned the perfect event using Groovy Gal Painting Party:

“I am in a Red Hat group and we were challenged this year to find different activities and to increase our membership. I sought an activity to host at my home since January can be crazy with all of the post-holiday lulls and tight wallets. Groovy Gal came up with a couple of economical options and was extremely flexible when I changed the event by one day to accommodate a larger crowd of guests. This was a great event and it was incredibly relaxing.”

Little Picasso Night

So you’ve had birthday parties at the bowling alley, the skating rink, and the local pizza joint. Running out of ideas? Throw a painting party at home for your little Picasso! Most people think of painting parties as something only for adults, but they’re great for little ones too. Most painting party companies can modify their paintings to fit the age group. They can also give you a variety of paintings to choose from based on your theme, color scheme, or difficulty level. Help your kiddos tap into their artistic side and create something they can be proud of!

Paint-Teen Party

Even your tweens and teens will love trading in their screens for a canvas! Hosting a painting party at home is a creative way to celebrate their birthdays. They’re also a fantastic activity for after-prom parties, graduation lock-ins, and church youth groups. Painting party companies are wonderful at keeping up with trends and know how to offer paintings that any age will love. Some even offer different things to paint besides canvases, such as giant letters, cutouts, picture frames, pallets, and more.

Eat, Sip, Paint

Start off fresh! Even salad works when it’s on a stick! These Caprese Salad Skewers couldn’t be more simple to make and are guaranteed to please your guests.
