Gather your brush and booze to explore how to throw a bachelorette sip-and-paint party to guarantee a celebration of sips and bride-to-be smiles.
Since the fad of sip-and-paint classes went mainstream, it’s no wonder people have adopted the idea for at-home gatherings. You don’t have to be an artist or wine connoisseur to throw a sip-and-paint party—just the right supplies and wine to sip. If you’re planning a bachelorette party for an introvert bride, a sip-and-paint theme is a happy medium between an intimate get-together and a wild night to remember. Gather your brush and booze to explore how to throw a bachelorette sip-and-paint party to guarantee a celebration of sips and bride-to-be smiles.
Cue the Timing
The perk of a sip and paint theme is that it’s appropriate to celebrate in the morning, evening, or anywhere in between. While hosting an evening affair is traditional for a bachelorette party, you’re free to host this theme under the fairy lights in your backyard, or in the morning sun to enjoy painting over a boozy brunch.
Pick the Supplies
It’s best to invest in ready-to-go art supplies like tabletop easels, reusable stencils, and washable paints. The most important factor is having a sufficient supply of wine for the party by investing in three bottles per guest. Be sure to have a broad wine selection offered to indulge in while painting. Invest in art smocks to offer your party guests to protect their clothing from paints dripping and wines spilling.
Arrange the Setup
Wherever you decide to host your sip-and-paint bachelorette party, ensure it’s spacious to set up workstations for each guest. Secure the surfaces you’re painting on with plastic cloths or newspapers. It’s easiest to use disposable ware like paper plates to serve as a paint mixing tray or water cups. Folding tables and chairs are a convenient option to move furniture for dancing or other bachelorette party activities. Be sure the areas designated for wine pouring and painting have accessible waste bins around them for easy clean-up.
A paint-and-sip bachelorette party is not only ideal for a low-key bride, but also an all-inclusive experience for guests. Invite members of the bridal party to supply their favorite wine or box of complementary chocolates to indulge in over their masterpieces. Embrace the celebration of love by choosing a wedding-themed subject for everyone to paint, or incorporate traditional bachelorette party games into the process—art charades over chardonnay, anyone?
