With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving later this month; it’s time to start thinking about Christmas! The Christmas season is the perfect time to get together with family and friends. A Christmas Painting Party is a great way to celebrate the season and mix things up a bit!

As you may know, I’m a DecoArt Core Blogger and I’ve partnered with their Social Artworking program to bring you a few simple ideas for a Christmas Painting party! Last summer, we hosted our very own Superhero Art Party and it was so fun! So naturally, I’m excited to share a fun party designed around one of their awesome Christmas designs, Christmas Car.
If you are not familiar with Social Artworking, allow me to share how easy the program works. First you visit the Social Artworking website to browse the many designs available. Once you select your favorite design, you simply add the pre-selected materials and paints to your cart according to the number of guests you plan on inviting. There is even a virtual Party Planner that will calculate what exactly you need for the number of guests. It’s that easy! Once your items are received, you’re ready to party!
Christmas Painting Party
If you know me at all, you know I love themed parties. So I was over the moon when I found the cutest Christmas Truck packed with gifts for my table centerpiece! Once I had my centerpiece picked out, all I need to do was create an invitation (see free printable below), backdrop, some cupcakes and a few party favors. For the backdrop, I decided on tulle for a soft backgroud and my silver glitter Merry Christmas sign which match the silver details of the centerpiece.
I set out a couple of jars filled with Christmas candy as well as a fresh batch of vanilla cupcakes for our guests. For a festive look, I added peppermint sticks and cherry sours plus a little dash of nutmeg.
I made Christmas Tree Party Favors and filled them with gummi bears. I also laid out a red, green and silver tassel garland on the table with a red and white striped table runner.
I just love how the little truck even had a wreath in front!
Once the dessert table was set, I set up the table where all the magic will happen. I covered my table with a festive Santa themed table runner and set out all the easels.
My kit included everything I needed for our party; easels, brushes, canvases, paints and the materials needed for the design.
I had painting palettes from our last party, which were perfect for mixing our paint.
I’m not a paint artist, so the fact that you don’t know how to paint is a HUGE plus for me. All you need to do is trace the included design with tracing paper!
I could never create this free hand!
The evolution is amazing!
Voila, instant artist!
Happy Party Planning!
