Now that the weather is warming up that means fun in the sun and lots of opportunities to get together with friends and loved ones! Why not add a creative twist to your pool party or backyard BBQ this year by throwing a paint and sip?

Outdoor Paint Party Ideas

With a little preparation even a novice painter can throw a great painting party! Social Artworking makes it even easier by providing you designs, materials, and instructions on how to throw your own paint party. All you need is the guests and drinks. We've gathered up some of our favorite designs, tips, and tricks, to help you throw the best outdoor paint party.

Paint Party Inspiration

There are so many benefits to an outdoor paint party. It's much easier to clean up afterwards and provide guests with enough space when you move a party to your backyard. Not only that, but guests don't have to worry about spills or getting too noisy in a crowded space! Here are some examples of wonderful outdoor paint parties to help inspire you.

Erin Brockovich from Everyday Party Magazine threw this adorable vintage style bridal shower using our Orange Tree design. Aren't these decorations so lovely? We love the rustic farmhouse feel.

Here's a party thrown by one of our artists in our home state, Kentucky, at an idyllic horse farm. She packed picnic lunches for guests to unpack and made sure to set-up in the shade for extra comfort. Who wouldn't want to sit and paint surrounded by such beautiful scenery?

Pool parties are another time where you can break out the paintbrush! Guests can take a break in the pool, or paint in the shade. We love how this flamingo paint party used pool floats and other decorations to get extra festive for guests. If you need tips on how to throw a pool party, check out our blog post here.

Cocktail Ideas

These refreshing cocktails are perfect for cooling down on warmer days. Make them in a large batch and keep them in a chilled pitcher with garnishes on hand so guests can serve themselves. That way you can stay focused on painting and hosting your best! Check out our blog post for more ideas.

Lavender Arnold Palmer mocktail. A floral twist on a classic drink. Having mocktails on hand is great for guests who don't drink but want to join in on the party spirit.

Pineapple mojito. Spiced rum adds a delicious kick to this drink! Serve with grilled pineapple to really wow your guests.

Watermelon mint gimlet. Nothing says summertime quite like watermelon, this combo is a must-try.
