Hope Anchors the Soul Painting Party. I was recently contacted by Social Artworking, and I jumped at the opportunity to host a paint party! Social Artworking sent everything I would need to host a paint night party for six. After a long look at their website, I decided on the Hope Anchors the Soul project. It is so simple to plan your own party using the tools on Social Artworking’s webpage! I knew right away I wanted to host the party in the evening at my husband’s office, and it was going to be a Girls Night Out. No kids, no men, decadent desserts, and delicious drinks.
My husband’s office has a large welcoming room, my office, employee offices, and an employee break room. The break room was the perfect place to host our Hope Anchors the Soul Painting Party. My husband and kiddos helped me clear out the little bit of furniture we have in the office, then I got to work setting up the party. I placed all the easels and canvases on a 6 foot table. I covered it with brown kraft paper from the Dollar Tree to protect it for paint mistakes. Next to each easel, I placed a gorgeous wine glass. A Special Touch Event Planning made them to match the party theme, and I could not have been more pleased with them!
I used a smaller 4 foot table for the paint, extra plates (for the paint), the paint brushes, extra water cups, and the ice bucket with wine and sparkling water.
I covered our break room counter with a quatrefoil table cloth and set up our Margaritaville with some of our favorite adult beverages, as well as our Keurig.
At the opposite side of the room, I had a dessert table, because you can’t have a party without desserts! I wanted to keep the backdrop simple, so I used my old window with a simple vinyl anchor added to it. I was able to go from a blank glass surface to a simply decorated backdrop in just minutes using my Cricut.
The desserts were a mix of store bought and homemade, but they were all delicious! I made a mixed berry trifle and cannoli bites, but I bought brownie bites, croissants, popcorn, and candies for the table.
Each guest was asked to bring 5 of their favorite item to exchange, I used striped bags from Michael’s to hold the goodies.
I scheduled about three hours for the party and socializing and we may have spent more time chatting at the office after the paint dried, but we all truly enjoyed our evening! I have been to a few Paint Nights at local studios, and I have to say I love the ability to host one on my own. The products are amazing, and I loved hosting it in a relaxed and comfortable environment. My guests loved how simple it was to create their master piece. One guest wanted to make her piece more personal, and suggested she might want to change hope to peace. I was able to quickly print up the word peace, and she used the transfer paper provided to customize it. Everyone remarked how great it was that even though they all worked on the same project, they all looked so completely different and unique.
We all had a fabulous time painting our master pieces and enjoying each other’s company. I cannot wait to host another paint night party! The supplies Social Artworking sent were very nice quality, so we will be able to use them again and again too!
