Northern Lights New Year’s Eve Celebration. One of my close friends loves to go to paint nights. She has been to both of my Social Artworking Parties as well as many other paint nights. She recently asked if I would mind helping her with a Social Artworking Party for her friends.
The party needed to be this week to accommodate holiday vacations, and out of town guests, and it needed to be gender neutral enough that men would enjoy it as well. Thankfully, Social Artworking was able to send all the party supplies in about a week, and they had PLENTY of selections for men and women to enjoy! My friend and I chose the Northern Lights scene for our party. Since the products from Social Artworking are such good quality, we were able to reuse easels and paint brushes from previous parties.
Like previous parties, I hosted it at my husband’s office. I wanted the backdrop for the food table to be simple, so I brought up several of my small Target Dollar Spot bottle brush trees, a larger snow dusted tree, and tiny bottle brush trees. I also took the ornaments off of our office Christmas tree and moved that into the back room. I kept the food simple, offering pre-made cookies, a meat and cheese tray, and the cutest embellished vanilla cupcakes. I found a simple tutorial on Fantabulosity for store bought cupcakes with confectioner’s sugar snow dusted rosemary sprig trees. My husband picked up a confectioner’s sugar dusting wand for me recently and it was so perfect for making these little cupcakes! I also served, Fizzy Pear Cocktails, beer, and Coca Cola in glass bottles. Red plates and napkins from Oriental Trading Company left over from our Holiday Open House were the perfect pop of color for the drink and dessert stations. (The plate are also perfect palettes for paint)
My friend and I started our canvases a little earlier than the rest of the guests so we could be a step ahead of them and know what to do next. This particular painting was a little more detailed than others we have done, so I was glad to be a little ahead of the group. But, we all finished up ahead of the estimated time.
This was a wonderful way to celebrate the impending new year with dear friends. I think I will make it a new annual tradition!
