Would you like to host a small party for your closest friends at your home? If so, you should consider setting up a painting party. It is the perfect way to relax and have a good time with people who mean the most to you. Each guest will have their own canvas to paint so everyone can leave the party with a stunning piece of art.

Get a Party Painting Kit

If you have ever attended a paint party, you know how much fun it is to sip on your favorite beverage while attempting to paint fun pictures. So, why not recreate the fun and excitement by purchasing a party painting kit? The party kit may come with the following supplies:

  • Miniature wood easels
  • Blank canvases
  • Paintbrushes (different sizes)
  • Acrylic paint
  • Aprons
  • Artist palette for paint

When the kit comes with these specific supplies, you will have everything you need to set things up and get started. You also need a large flat surface, such as a kitchen table or plastic picnic table that you can put out in the middle of the living room for guests. Attach one blank canvas to a wood easel and place each easel in a different spot, giving your friends plenty of space to sit with their paintbrushes and palettes. You can even add the paint colors to the palettes right before your friends arrive to have things fully ready for them as soon as they get to your house.

How to Figure Out What to Paint

When you go to one of those traditional painting parties, there is usually a host who will provide details on which shapes to make and which colors to use to end up with a beautiful painting at the end of the session. However, you do not need to have a host to paint with friends and successfully create beautiful artwork. Instead, you can find different tutorials online to follow. Once you find the tutorial that you think is easy enough to follow and will leave each person with a stunning painting, you can set it up so everyone can watch it on the television while sitting and painting together. During your search, you will find thousands of different tutorials, some of which are better than others. You can always watch a few of the tutorials before the party to help you decide which one you will use for the painting party.

What to Serve Guests at the At-Home Paint Party

If you enjoy drinking alcoholic beverages at times, you may want to create different cocktails that you can sip on and enjoy with your friends while painting. If you do not drink alcohol, you can serve mocktails using sparkling water with pineapple juice and apple juice. Make the party even more enjoyable by offering a variety of finger foods to snack on between painting. These are some of the best finger foods to have at the party:

  • Buffalo chicken sliders
  • Mini corn dogs
  • Tater tot kabobs
  • Potato skins
  • Chicken nuggets or tenders
  • Pizza rolls

If you happen to have an air fryer, buy the ingredients needed to make different finger foods before the party and then prepare them within minutes using the air fryer to heat them.

Who says that you need to go out to have a good time? You can host an enjoyable painting party at home with some of your closest friends. Be sure to purchase a party painting kit, along with the foods and beverages you will serve to your friends throughout the event. The painting party will provide you and your friends with the perfect opportunity to have good conversations, share plenty of laughs, and make art, all while spending quality time together.
