After I had so much fun at Wine and Design here in Charlotte aka Sips and Strokes or Paintin' and Drinkin' as I like to call it, the girls in my supper club wanted to do it too. So we thought it would be fun to do it one night instead of our traditional gathering. But at $35 or $45 a person and not having the ability to really eat a good dinner, we decided to create our own by me teaching the painting I learned.
So I picked my menu (make your own tacos) and got the house ready. I served chips and salsa and veggies and hummus for appetizers. We started out with wine and margaritas inside and then moved outside to paint.
I purchased 12x12 canvases at Michael's and inexpensive craft acrylic paint. We made our "palettes" on paper plates from the dollar store and got to painting!
Everyone had a really good time! And they all turned out awesome!
After painting we had dinner by candlelight! It cooled off and there was a nice breeze. It was just lovely!
Here we are showing off our art!
Sweet Rudy not only got Reed down for the evening while I got ready for the party but he also cleaned up when he got home. I have the best husband!
Great evening! Can't wait to see the girls again!
