Are you looking for ideas on how to host a stylish Paint and Sip Gold Coast Party? Alternatively, you could be looking for a unique and entertaining party theme idea for a small group of pals. Then read on to learn how to have your own DIY painting party in your own house, which will be both simple and inexpensive thanks to the information in this article. It was several years ago that I hosted this art-themed party for my daughter’s birthday, long before paint and sip Gold Coast parties were so popular! Due to the fact that I utilized nearly only dollar store items (woot! ), it was a simple and cheap party theme to carry off. Furthermore, it is a party theme that both adults and children would enjoy.
What is a Paint and Sip Party, and how does it work?
Those of you who are unfamiliar with the term Paint and Sip may be surprised to learn that it is simply a catchy name for a painting party! Typically, these get-togethers take place at an art studio, where a group of friends may work together to create a piece of art on canvas with the assistance of a professional. That is the ‘paint’ portion of the process. And what about the “sip” part? If you’re serving wine, it may be simply changed with non-alcoholic punch or a mocktail, which is especially useful when you’re serving children as your guests.
How to Host a DIY Painting Party
Paint and sip Gold Coast parties are often hosted in a venue, but you could simply organize your own DIY painting party at your house for your closest friends instead of going out. A professional artist may be quite helpful while working on projects, but it is not absolutely essential. After all, isn’t the whole idea of being sociable and creative while still having a good time? You may also check Pinterest for a simple activity for a paint and sip Gold Coast party because there are so many wonderful materials available on how to paint abstract art. Although I am not an artist, I am aware that our own DIY painting party was a rousing success. Here’s how I went about it.
What You’ll Need to Host a DIY Paint and Sip Party at Your Residence
Paint and Drink at Home: Supplies for a Get-together
Items that may be rented include:
- A big table and enough folding seats for all of your guests to sit comfortably (rentable)
- Plastic tablecloths that are bright and fun to use to catch the mess.
- Decorations for the party in a spectrum of colors.
- Table decorations that are edible: glass jars filled with brilliantly colored candies such as gum balls, Swedish fish, and so forth.
- Supplies for each guest’s place setting, including:
- Canvas • Easel made of wood (optional)
- Sheets of watercolour paper (optional) (see note below)
- A set of watercolour paints (see note below)
- Paint brushes
- Any additional equipment necessary for the activity (straws and painters’ tape were required in our case)
- A cup of water
- A roll of paper towels
Everything you need for this project can typically be purchased at a dollar shop. However, if you prefer to buy online, you may purchase the majority of these items at sites such as Amazon.com if you prefer that method. NOTE: This post includes affiliate links.

The watercolour paint kit was then included in the party favours for guests to take home. (If your project calls for acrylic craft paint, simply choose a different colour.) Everyone signed their names on the bottom of the set with a Sharpie, and we placed them in their takeaway bags once the painting was completed.
I also set up straws and masking tape on the table in case any of the visitors wanted to try out any of the easy painting methods I demonstrated, such as blowing paint through a straw and masking their initials/names with tape. But to be honest, they didn’t require much guidance. All of the participants had their own visions for what they intended to build. (And, after all, isn’t that what art is about?)

Art-themed games that may be played at a DIY paint and sip Gold Coast events are available.
As soon as the painting was finished, we spread it all out on the kitchen island to dry while we engaged in a few other art-related activities. Games are certainly not required at a Paint and Sip party – especially for adults – but if you have children among your guests, it makes the event that much more enjoyable! Here are a handful more suggestions for art-themed games:
Art Pictionary: We also played a handmade version of the game ‘Pictionary’ in groups of two people. My students chose their own drawings from a hat of ridiculous (and simple) things I created for them to draw (e.g., a dog playing the flute). One pair drew while the other guessed, and at the end of the game, the team who completed the task the fastest received the reward. It was a great deal of fun!
How to Set the Stage for a Paint and Sip Party
Even if decorating for a DIY paint and sip Gold Coast party isn’t required, it couldn’t be much simpler! And the greatest part is… All of this can be found for a reasonable price at any dollar or party store. I decorated with streamers, balloons, paper lanterns, and tissue flowers in a variety of colours to represent the colours of the rainbow. I put decorations together in order to create a strong statement.
The Best Food to Serve at a Paint and Sip Event
Having a paint and sip Gold Coast party is mostly for the purpose of, you guessed it, painting and drinking! For this reason, if you have adults attending your party, you should have wine or champagne on hand for them to enjoy! It’s usually a good idea to have non-alcoholic beverages available as well, such as punch or elegant mocktails. And, of course, if you’re hosting a party for children, you’ll want to have some foods on hand that are related to the subject of the party.
Because our celebration was scheduled for the middle of the day, I prepared snacks that were in keeping with the rainbow theme of the party. Using red strawberries and watermelon for the base colour, yellow pineapple and cantaloupe for the next, violet grapes for the next, and blueberries for the last colour, I created rainbow fruit skewers. Along with the rainbow-themed veggie tray, we also had Kool-aid in a variety of colours, rainbow-colored candies, and sweet treats sprinkled with rainbow sprinkles.
