5 Reasons Why You Should Book a Painting Party

Over the past few years, painting parties have emerged as one of the newest activities to do to celebrate a birthday, at a bridal or baby shower, bachelorette party, or just because. If you haven’t been to painting party yet, or are wondering why so many people are choosing to host paint parties in McHenry County, IL, Philadelphia, PA, New York, and in cities all over the country, here are some of the top five reasons:

No Experience is Necessary – If you’re worried that you don’t have enough “experience” painting, you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t need to have any if you’re attending or hosting a party. All you’ll have to do is follow the artist’s instructions.

It’s Something That You Actually “Do” – Going to the movies, a concert, or play with friends or family members are all fun activities, but you aren’t actually doing anything. At a painting party, you can enjoy everyone’s company as well as use your hands and mind to make your very own masterpiece.

It’s Affordable – If you choose to host a party with Pretty In Paint Parties, it costs $35 to paint a 16×20 painting and $40 for an 18×24 painting. While it might seem expensive to some at first, you should take into account that the artist brings everything – the canvas, aprons, paints, brushes, and his or her expertise to help you paint.

It’s Great for Small or Large Group Events – It’s a no-brainer – a painting party is ideal for small and large group events. As we mentioned above, it’s something fun to do to celebrate a birthday, during a bachelorette party, or even if you’re hosting a fundraising event.

You Will Have Your Very Own Artwork to Hang Up at Home – When you leave the painting party you can put your own piece of artwork on display at home (or not), and enjoy it for years down the road!

3 Tips to Help You Host a Great and Stress-Free Holiday Painting Party

Once October, and especially November and December come around once again, many businesses and other organizations will begin planning their holiday parties, and so will many families and friends begin planning any big holiday get-togethers. To make your holiday party unique this year, you may have booked a paint party with us here at Pretty In Paint Parties. However, after booking the paint party, you may be at a loss as to how you can make the event even better. Well, luckily we here at Pretty In Paint Parties have been to plenty of holiday painting parties, and have some tips that you can consider to help you host a great and stress-free holiday painting party.

Set a cheerful mood by pursuing a holiday theme.

We listed the theme as our first tip because if you know you’re having a holiday painting party, it’s likely you already know the date, time, and where it will be hosted. So, the “first” thing we suggest you do to ensure you have a great party is to set a cheerful mood by having a holiday theme. After all, it’s a holiday party and you might not want to have some tropical beach backdrops, luau centerpieces, and grass hula skirts lying around for guests to wear. So, do whatever you need to do to ensure it’s a holiday theme by serving some holiday-themed beverages such as egg nog and apple cider, traditional holiday food, and, of course, don’t forget some holiday decorations and lights.

Let people know how they should dress.

Some of the best things about having a wine and paint party with us are that our artists will provide aprons, tablecloths, and everything else you and your guests need to paint. However, if you plan on continuing the party long after our artist leaves, it’s important for your guests to know how they should dress. Will your party be more business casual, festive, or formal? Whatever it is, rest assured any painters will be protected with our aprons!

Blend traditional holiday tunes with some of your dance party favorites.

Have holiday party music playing, but don’t overdo it. You can play a couple of traditional holiday music tracks such as “Feliz Navidad,” and “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” right after one another, but mix it up by adding in some of your dance party favorites. That way, your party will be playing anything but the same holiday tunes over and over (and that your guests may have already heard numerous times on the radio.)

Why You Should Consider a Paint Party for Your Child’s Next Birthday

Many children, if not all of them, often enjoy doing creative activities such as drawing or coloring. Therefore, if you’re thinking of having a painting party for your child’s next birthday, or just because you want to have them do something new, you might want to schedule one because it’ll probably be one of the most fun things they’ll ever do.

If you’re still unsure as to whether booking a paint party with a Pretty In Paint Parties is worthwhile, below are three things that may help you to make your final decision.

They will learn how to be even more creative but also learn how to start thinking critically.

Not only will your son or daughter and whoever else attends the party learn how they can express themselves through art, but they will also start to develop their critical thinking skills. Critical thinking skills are established because they will learn how to make decisions in regards to which ways they should move their brushes, or which colors they should choose.

Your son or daughter will gain additional self-esteem.

If your child didn’t know how to paint before the party, he or she will feel much more open to painting down the road. What’s more, seeing the final painting will help your child feel like he or she can handle any challenges that come along in the future.

A paint party will help your child to relieve some stress.

Even though professional painters sometimes feel stressed about what they are painting, your child and his or her friends may find relief from painting. Inevitably, as soon as everyone grabs their brushes, dabs them in the paint, and begins to stroke the canvas, they will become lost in the colors that they see, and the images they are creating.

When it all comes down to it, there are several reasons why you should strongly consider booking a paint party for your child’s next birthday, or for any other special occasion. After all, if you want to help them appreciate art, this can be a great way to introduce it to them.

3 Reasons Why You Should Book a Holiday Painting Party

Are you a small business owner who is looking to have your employees do something different for your annual holiday party this year? Do you want to help improve efficiency and encourage camaraderie at your holiday party this year but don’t know how?

Well, consider a holiday painting party hosted by a local artist from Pretty In Paint Parties.

Just because a paint party is something that a person typically does to celebrate a birthday—or just do for fun with friends or family for whatever reason, it doesn’t mean that businesses are unable to have one as their holiday parties, or to make the celebration even bigger. In fact, here are three reasons why you might want to book a holiday painting party this year:

1. It’s a great team building activity.

2. It can be a cost-effective choice.

3. You can have the party anywhere, and at any time you want.

There is no denying that a paint party is an awesome team building activity. All of your employees will be painting the same thing (they will even likely all be talking about the same thing), and they will all be working towards one common goal (a complete painting). Therefore, no matter what position a particular employee is in at your company, he or she will be on the same level as everyone else during this unique holiday party. However, if there are artists in your organization, there is no doubt they might have a slight advantage.

We know that for some businesses, renting out a private party room at a restaurant or a catering hall can be costly. So, instead of trying to pull a sufficient amount of funds together to hold a big and elaborate bash, choose to have a wine and paint party (yes, you can bring booze if you want) at your office, or anywhere else you want. Furthermore, for $35 a person, your employees will get to take home their own 16×20 paintings. Not to mention this price also includes the artist’s instruction, canvas, paints, brushes, and everything else needed to paint!

How to Host a Great Painting Party

If you’ve settled on having a paint and sip party at your Philadelphia home or are having a painting party at your home in Waukesha County, Wisconsin, you might be wondering how you can make sure it is a great and memorable party. If you do want to make sure that the entire party runs smoothly, all of your guests will show up, etc., here is a planning schedule that you can follow:

One month before the party:

One month before the party date, you should send out the invitations. What’s more, on the invitation you should definitely ask for RSVPs so you can provide the artist with a rough head count. You should also choose the painting during this time so you can put it on the invitation.

One-two weeks before:

Figure out what you will be serving at the party by coming up with a menu. In fact, if it’s a paint and sip party, you should probably start acquiring some of the booze. Inevitably, you should have what you will be serving finalized so that 2-3 days before the party, you can head out to the store and purchase fresh food.

2 or 3 days before:

Have your detailed shopping list ready to go and head out to the store to buy what you can. This is also the time where you need to start rearranging any furniture to ensure that there is enough room for everyone to paint. Last, but not least, you should check all of your light bulbs!

One day before:

This is your last chance to buy any food or drinks that will not taste as good after a few days of sitting in the fridge. Additionally, if you plan on serving drinks with ice, and have a big freezer, you should get your hands on a few bags of ice.

The day of the party:

Make sure everything is in place, and start setting up the food stations! When it all comes down to it, by the time you get to the day of the party, you shouldn’t be running around anymore, but enjoying a glass of wine until your guests arrive!

By following what we have suggested above, you will likely have nothing short of an awesome and stress-free painting party!
