Looking for something fun and different for your next get together? Why not try a themed dinner party? For the next several posts, we’re going to be sharing different ideas for fun themed parties. You and your friends will have a great time and depending on the activity or theme, you might have something cool for them to take home.


Painting and wine parties are really popular right now! Specialty stores, restaurants and art galleries host them all the time. But it can be even more fun doing it in your own home—and less expensive.

You can find packages online that will do everything from sending you the canvasses already outlined, a canvas with the supplies or just a video. In addition, YouTube has a host of art training videos available for free. One of my favorites is The Art Sherpa, Cinnamon Cooney. Tune in to her at https://www.youtube.com/user/HoneyBmama. She’s fun, she gives you great tips and I promise you, you’re not going to be bored!


With so many paintings to choose from, there’s something for everyone. You need to preview the video before the party in order to know what colors of paint to buy and what brushes are ideal for the piece you’ll be doing. At this point you can head out and purchase the canvasses and other supplies at your local craft store or order them from Amazon (there’s nothing you can’t find on there!) Or send the list to your friends to BYOP and BYOC (bring your own paint and bring your own canvas).


Make some easy to eat treats, open a bottle of wine and in no time, you and your friends can whip up an amazing piece of art and have fun while doing it! And if it’s not exactly amazing (we can’t all be Michelangelos) you can at least have fun!


Tune in next time for our next themed party-Glamour Shots!!
