Host a Painting Party at Home

So, what do you need to do to have friends over for a painting night? There are lots of easy ways to host a party. But, here are a few simple tips to make sure that yours is the most fun ever.

Timeline to hosting your party

3 to 4 weeks before your party

When planning your event, be sure to ask for RSVPs when you send out invitations. You don’t want to have enough snacks and supplies for 5 only to have 8 people to show up.

Once you know how many people will be attending, you can plan out your menu and be sure you have enough food. Make sure you plan for a large enough table with extra drop cloths as well.

Shop for all of your supplies. I love these cute wooden cutouts. They are a nice change from a blank easel that may intimidate people who are new to the craft.

There are lots of different themes including patriotic, Christmas, sports, and religious. Consider letting your guests choose the cut out they want to make. 

Remember, you will also need paint in a variety of colors and lots of paintbrushes.

1 week before your big day

It’s almost time for your event and you need to start planning what you’ll be serving. Try to choose recipes that can be made ahead of time. 

When you host a painting party at home, you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen cooking while your friends are having fun. A meat and cheese tray is just perfect for this.

2 to 3 days before

Now is the time to head to the store for groceries and drinks for your guests. Don’t forget extra paper products and disposable plates if you don’t want to do dishes.

Make sure that you have enough chairs for everyone that wants to attend. Check to be sure you have drop cloths for both the tables and the chairs.

1 day before

Do any kitchen prep work you can to save time tomorrow. Get your supplies together and make sure you’re not missing anything. 

Do your final cleaning and consider getting a bouquet of fresh flowers for the table.

Welcome your guests. Get everyone seated and let them have fun. Be sure you have plenty of fresh water available to rinse your brushes.

  1. So fun! I once threw a painting party for a group of kids but never thought of having one with my friends. I like this idea so much better than going to a larger class.

  2. What a fun idea! I’d love to do this kind of thing with friends. Thanks for sharing! I’m visiting today from the #anythinggoes link up. Have a great week Ellen!
