Yummi Studios Paint Nite with Friends

Yummi Studios paint nite with friends

A few days ago, I went to my first paint nite presented by Yummi Studios at the Post Office Cafe in Babylon, NY. Attending a sip and paint has been on my 30 before 30 list, so when my friend asked me to go, I was excited.

Yummi Studios Paint Nite Recap

Introduction to Yummi Studios Paint Nite

The event was called “Piña Colada Paint & Sip”. If you do attend a Yummi Studios Paint nite, make sure to read the terms; there are BYOB, alcohol-free or pay at the venue. We thought Piña coladas were included, but they were sold at a discounted $5. Our instructor gave a brief overview of Yummi Studios and the various sip and paint events hosted within Long Island and NYC. The instructor also mentioned the possibility of becoming frustrated with going through the steps to create our “masterpiece”.  The main focus for attendees is to have a good time. I was a bit nervous about my final result since I have zero painting skills.

The Painting Experience with Yummi Studios

The painting we followed looked pretty tough to reproduce, but following directions step by step wasn’t so bad. I “failed” on more than one occasion, but certain cover-ups were able to hide my faults. In addition to painting, my friends and I were able to catch up and talk about what was going on in our personal lives. It had been months since seeing each other, so we had a lot to talk about.

In the end, my palm leaves needed love, but we had an overall great time. Getting to the venue was the biggest hassle. If I go to another sip and paint event, I’ll definitely find one closer to home.

    I attended my first paint night at a blogging conference a few years ago of all places! But it was so much fun, and I had no idea I could actually paint something that looks like how it’s supposed to look (we drew a fish in water). You all did a great job!

    I’ve never had a paint night with girlfriends before…so I’m thinking that’s a great idea to hash out this year with some friends. Maybe we’ll need to start one. 🙂 Yours looks like a lot of fun.
