Host & Hostess Tips:

  • Set a date
  • Send invites via Facebook, email or post cards about 3-4 weeks before the party
  • Invite guests to come 15 minutes before the instruction begins so they have time to mingle and get settled. For example: A paint party might begin at 6:00 pm ~ we’ll paint from 6:15 to 9:15, with a couple 5-10 minute breaks, then mix and Mingle while paintings dry for 15 minutes, so plan for the party itself to last about 3.5 hours
  • Select the painting your guests will paint from my painting possibilities list
  • Plan your menu sticking to simple or make -ahead items and make a shopping list
  • Choose a fun playlist of favorite music (or music that goes along with your theme) to be playing in the background

A day or two day before…

  • Shop for food, beverages, ice, napkins and any plastic dishes or utensils you may want to use
