paint nite with the girls

I’ve seen these fun paint and wine events for awhile now and I’ve always wanted to try it. A quick group text among my girlfriends and we made it happen. We got news that my friend E was flying down from San Francisco and she wanted to celebrate her birthday doing Paint Nite. The event was at Mimi’s Cafe, they have a huge back room that fit all the painters and supplies.


There was a special limited menu for the event. We ordered appetizers and drinks.


The instructor got all the supplies ready for each painter, everything was already set-up at each station.

….and the fun begins! There was a copy of the finished painting in front of the room, and when you look at it, it looks quite challenging and you wonder “how can I paint something like that?”. However, once you the instructor starts walking you thru step by step, layer by layer, you’ll start to see your own painting come along.


I didn’t follow the original painting exactly, because I wanted to work with a different color scheme to help match the decor in our house.  Below is the example of the painting we were supposed to paint. I change the colors of the leaves to yellow/orange tone.


Here’s my painting 🙂

The whole gang, everyone was so proud of their creation. What a fun girls night this was, hoping we can do it again soon.


My painting is currently hanging in the guest bedroom.
