If you're looking for a new summertime activity try throwing a paint party to add a touch of creativity to your next get-together! We've gathered some fun-in-the-sun summer paint party ideas to help inspire you.

Beach Paint Party

Who doesn't love a day at the beach? This beach themed paint party from Lydi Out Loud is cute and easy. If you're short on time try thinking of simple touches you can add that can elevate your party, like using a sand bucket to hold utensils or picking up some paper umbrellas. 

Letting guests serve themselves is the easiest way to keep everyone fed and happy! Provide finger food like cupcakes, chips, or pieces of fruit and make drinks in batches that can be served from a pitcher.

Don't forget to take a group shot once you're done painting! Here they're showing off our Tranquil Surf design.

What a spread! Atta Girl Says went all out for this backyard retreat. Beach balls, chairs, and towels make this table really feel like the coast. Check out her blog for more beach themed party ideas.

Beat the heat with a poolside paint party! Invite guests to paint away or take a dip for a relaxing evening outdoors. Serve drinks in an inflatable cooler to bring the party to the pool.

Social Artworking has plenty of beach themed designs, take a look at some of our favorites below.

Luau Party Ideas

Keep it tropical with a lovely luau theme. Pineapples, coconuts, and palm fronds are what it's all about for this vintage luau party.

Offer small favors guests can take home. Leis are great because they can be worn at the party and taken home as a memento.

Serve drinks in plastic coconuts (Or real ones, if you can!) to really bring that tropical vibe. We love the tissue paper flowers Uncommon Designs used to bring color to the grass skirt backdrop.

Summer Activities for Kids

Paint parties are a great summertime activity to keep the kiddos entertained or to celebrate a birthday. Social Artworking has plenty of Junior designs perfect for kids of all ages.

Paint your cake and eat it too! This fun birthday party from Dimple's Prints features our cupcake design. We love how creative kids can get with this sweet painting.

Don't forget the snacks! Dimple Prints kept color at the heart of this kid's party by serving bottles of "creative juice" and rice krispy paintbrushes.
