Are you racking your brain in Sydney, wondering what might make for a perfect birthday or anniversary party? Picture this: a paintbrush in one hand while balancing a wine glass in another!
Your paint and sip party can be the talk of your friend circle. While there are many professional studios running paint and sip in Sydney, you can plan it all on your own, too!
Not only will you get to spend your special day a little drunk and a lot happy, but you also create a unique masterpiece of all time. Something you can hang in your living room as a memento of sorts. And no, you don’t need to be Van Gogh of your generation to do this!
So How Do You Plan a Perfect Paint and Sip Party?
First things first – organising your paint and sip night will be a lot more convenient and affordable. On average, a person pays about $30-$50 (excluding alcohol) when signing up for a two-hours class!
But it’ll be a lot cheaper to plan your party!
Step 1: Choose the Format of Your Party
The first thing is to decide the format of the party.
Is it going to be virtual or in-person?
If it is online, worry not! It can still be just as fun, especially from the comfort of your house. And, you can include friends from across the ocean or those following Covid restrictions!
On the other hand, an in-person party is bound to be more enjoyable. Although, you might have to borrow a few more tables to keep your paint essentials.
Step 2: Selecting the Style of Your Event
Usually, in Sydney, an art instructor heads a paint and sip party—a professional artist who can guide everyone to paint at the best of their capabilities.
But, it’s hard to hire an instructor for a private party. You can find a painting tutorial online and cast it on the TV. Pick something easy for your beginner friends!
But if you want a more friendly vibe, then a tutorial isn’t needed. Instead, everyone can choose to paint whatever they like, at a pace they prefer!
Step 3: Choose a Painting
If you choose a tutorial, you need to select a painting. What is it that you and your friends would like to create?
If your party is full of beginners, pick something with an easy colour scheme and effortless painting techniques.
But, if your party is full of experienced painters, then you can pick something more detailed to recreate!
Step 4: Get Paint Supplies
Pro tip: distribute the list of painting supplies amongst your friends. Less pressure, lower costs!
Some of the essential supplies you would need are acrylic paints, paintbrushes, canvas, easels and a paint palette.
Step 5: Set Up the Workstations
A good paint and sip party will require fabulous workstations!
Get some gorgeous lighting, like lamps or fairy lights. Put table covers to protect your tabletops from accidental spills. And, oh, plastic sheets on the floor are a must too! Additionally, get some aprons to protect your clothes.
There is no party without finger food and drinks! You can either arrange all the alcohol yourself or make it a BYOB party.
Keep the paint supplies in the middle of the room, easy for everyone to access.
Step 6: Get Started!
Now that your venue is set, supplies are in order, and invites are out, all you have to do is get started. Let your hair down and enjoy yourself leisurely with your friends!
A paint and sip party is the perfect way to relax with your pals, enjoy a few drinks and bring out your creative side. No wonder paint and sip in Sydney are so popular!
So, express yourself through your art and sip wine while doing so. Nothing better than this, right?
