Girls VDay Painting Party

12 February

 I’m not an artist by any means but I’ve had the itch to paint for months now. I finally rounded up a couple girlfriends, a set of acrylics, chocolate, and a good bottle of wine for the perfect stormy evening cure. I highly recommend for any last minute Valentine’s Day plans or upcoming girls’ nights in. I know we will be recreating a similar mood soon so I can continue to get my artsy fix–it was so very zen on a rainy Friday night!


Tip: Set the mood with candles and give your guests a little inspiration to start with (magazine cut outs, artistic prints, or printed graphics)


“Le Smoking” + “Lara” by my talented girlfriend Kelly ~ inspired my creative juices


Key: Create a comfy workspace so you can all lounge around on the floor (and be sure to lay down a drop cloth for spills!).

Of course, sweet treats are a must for any girls’ night. Ombre chocolate cherries? Yes and yes.


What do you have planned for Valentine’s Day?
