Paint Nite was so much fun, from the dinner before painting, to the instructors with bubbly personalities and an incredible venue, I enjoyed every minute and didn't want to leave when it the evening ended.
Vintage is a farm-to-table restaurant offering fresh, local goods in an upscale, modern environment. Plus, they have cocktails ON TAP, something that I had never seen. We enjoyed dinner and drinks before finding our seats in the lovely room used for painting.
Although I wore an older Lilly Pulitzer t-shirt dress, I protected my clothing with an apron that the friendly instructor provided. By the end of the evening, my fingers had quite a bit of paint on them, but I didn't get any paint on the apron or my clothing.
My friends and I chose to paint wine glasses. Each place at the table was set with a palette of paint colors, water, brushes, and the wine glasses. The table offered plenty of work space and I didn't feel crowded at all even though party guests occupied almost every seat.
Using a large sheet of bulletin board paper and sharpies, the instructor led us through the painting process step-by-step. She also showed us several example glasses to use for inspiration. Painting the wine glass was a bit more challenging than I had anticipated, but I love the final result. The instructor offered suggestions to artists, allowing our creativity to flourish! When I took a trip around the room to look at the glasses that others had painted, I loved seeing how everyone interpreted the task differently and used unique color patterns.
Here we are with our final projects!
Paint Nite is a unique, fun experience. I highly recommend it for a girls' night out, bridal parties, birthday parties, team building, or other events.
