I'm Just Here To Cook…and Eat!

A DIY Paint and Sip Party

Leave a comment

Paint and Sip joints are all the rage now, but it’s super easy and fun to have your own at home. And it’s the perfect way to spend a night in with family or friends- guys and girls alike! And exactly how we celebrated my cousins upcoming milestone birthday! Just head to your local craft store (don’t forget the coupons) to get your supplies. You’ll need a canvas, paint brushes and paint. There are easy paint tutorials online you can use as a guide. Either find one before your party and purchase the paint colors they tell you, or do what my cousins and I did and just buy one of each paint color to mix and match! 

Get some fun napkins and party decorations, purchase your favorite wine and of course…. as any good gathering will have… plan your menu. 

One of my favorite party appetizers are Greek meatballs. It’s easy to make and also easy to eat! Just mix together 1 lb turkey chop meat with 1/2 breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup water, 1 egg, 1 tsp oil, 1 tbs garlic powder, 1/2 tbs onion powder, 1 tsp oregano, salt and pepper. Form your balls and bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until cooked all the way through. Done. Pop them in your mouth with a toothpick as your hands maaaay just be filled with paint!

With the wind howling and the rain pounding down as a nasty storm moved through the northeast last night, this was the perfect way to spend an evening in celebrating. Especially as the painting of choice was a beautiful ocean sunset. Have fun developing your DIY paint party and the food to go along with it!
