Basically You Paint and Drink

Monday, June 16, 2014

When I think of bachelorette parties, I think lots of drinking and staying out all night. This weekend I went to Becca's bachelorette party and it was nothing like what I imagine them being like. Though it was far from my idea of typical, I have to admit I had a lot of fun.

After having a lovely snack at Aunt Cindy's house, we went to a place called Wine and Design, basically you paint and drink. We were such a calm bunch, but it was so much fun. Becca's favorite flower and wedding flower is the sunflower, so of course we were painting that!

Our teacher would tell/show us what to do and then go to town painting on hers. I felt a little overwhelmed at the beginning but after a glass of wine things started moving more smoothly. 

Hardly anybody talked while we were painting, we were so ahead of schedule. I swear, while I was painting I was thinking, 'oh gosh, this is going to turn out horribly!' But it all started coming together. It's amazing how it all takes shape in the end. Everybody's paintings turned out amazing!

I hung mine in the living room. Though I know I need to move the nail down some, it's way too high for that painting. But I think it looks good there since it's already decorated with sunflowers!

I really think I am going to have to go back there. It was so much fun! I think it could be very addictive!

  1. I love going to these classes they are so much fun! :)

  2. After I give birth I want to go to one of these places. Just so I can drink and see how creativity flows out of me. BAWAHAHAHAAHAH

  3. I have always wanted to do one of these classes. I always see deals on Groupon! Looks like so much fun.
