Birthday Painting Party

Home on the HillFor my birthday, I bought a Groupon for a small, on-location painting party from Personal Picasso. They come to your house, set up the painting supplies (canvases, paint, brushes, aprons), and teach you how to paint one of their pieces. I highly recommend it (although if you go with Personal Picasso, the best way to get a hold of Charli is by text or facebook).

I provided a few snacks and punch and friends contributed more goodies. The Jalapeno Corn Dip from Lovely Little Kitchen was very tasty and I would make it again. I tried making mini biscuits using Window on the Prairie’s recipe, and they turned our well but not drastically more delicious than canned biscuits. The Apple Punch from Passion for Parties¬†with an optional vodka addition was just ok.

I made a little banner using some tissue paper and my Cricut. Here’s the tutorial I used to make the tassels (look at the pictures more than the words).

Since I had honey leftover from a baby shower earlier this year, they served as my party favors.

We ran a little later than planned, but after 2.5hrs, here are our paintings:

    I love how you all painted the same thing but it all has its own character!
