With the weather warming up, we all want to spend more time outdoors, soaking in the sun’s rays and breathing in the fresh air. Why not take your next painting party outdoors? Your guests will appreciate the excuse to relax outside, and you could enjoy an easier cleanup once the party is over. Of course, these are only a few of the benefits of hosting a party outside. Here are the other reasons you should consider an outdoor painting party:
Don’t restrict your party based on the confines of your walls. Instead, set up the paint and sip in your backyard or a local park and spread out as far as possible.
When you host the painting party outdoors, you don’t have to worry about your guest list getting too long. Invite who you want and still have plenty of space for everyone to sit and paint comfortably.
Pleasant Weather Conditions
There are only so many weeks we can enjoy comfortably outdoors. You should take advantage of every moment and host your painting event outdoors. Guests will appreciate the feel of a gentle breeze ruffling their hair and the sun warming their skin while they paint a masterpiece. Locating the party outside also provides a gorgeous backdrop to the entire event. The perfect weather and beautiful scenery will be sure to have guests’ creative juices flowing.
Easy-Peasy, Lemon-Squeezy Cleanup
When you host a party indoors, not only do you have to spend tremendous amounts of time cleaning the space and decorating it, but you also have to dedicate time to cleaning up the leftover mess. That could include picking up trash, wiping down surfaces, vacuuming or sweeping the floor, and rearranging furniture.
You can cut back on some of this cleanup by throwing an outdoor painting party. Of course, you will still have some cleanup, but not nearly as much. To get ready for the party, you will need to set up a few additional chairs and tables and place trash cans nearby if you don’t already have these things. You can add decorations to the space, but this is entirely optional since the landscaping does a great deal of the decorating for you.
After the party is over, cleanup will simply consist of throwing out the trash and returning the tables and chairs to where they belong. Enticingly simple, right?
The Chance to Make a Splash in the Pool — and on the Canvas
Hosting a party during the warm summer months is the perfect excuse for combining a pool party with a paint and sip. Guests can paint in the shade and then jump in the pool to cool off during breaks.
Pool and paint parties are especially popular with the kiddos. Not only can they exercise their creative muscles, but they can also swim off a lot of that energy they carry in their little bodies.
An Excuse to Enjoy Summer in a Glass
What is an adult paint party without the wine or homemade cocktails? A really sad excuse for a party, in our opinion! Take your painting experience to the next level with refreshing, summer-inspired drinks. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Pineapple Mojitos
- Watermelon Mint Gimlet
- Peach Basil Bellini
- Cucumber Cooler Cocktail
- Passionfruit Hurricanes
- Virgin Daiquiris
- Sparkling Grape Juice
A Reason to Create an Outdoor Oasis
When you hear the words “outdoor party,” you likely imagine an event that takes place during the day. While this is always a great idea (because of the perfect lighting for painting canvases), you can host your outdoor paint and sip in the evening.
You will need to ensure the space has proper lighting for painting. But this scenario offers amazing opportunities for creating an oasis in your backyard. Hang string lights around the painting area, place clusters of fairy lights on the tables, and light a fire pit or tiki torches to create a peaceful and magical ambiance, perfect for igniting everyone’s creativity.
