Lake & Local recently hosted a DIY Paint Party for a group of friends, a gift from a recent bride to her friends for helping with her wedding. We called in our very talented local vendor, Amy Kent of Kent and Co Designs, and the ladies had a blast!
Lane, the organizer of the event, liked the idea of a paint party allowing her friends to customize a moleskin journal for themselves. We set up the Statham Room with rectangle tables covered in craft paper, and folding chairs. Amy set up each person's station with everything they needed - a paper plate for mixing paint colors, their journal, brushes, and cups of water to clean them in.
The ladies gathered and chatted while Amy helped them with a few basic painting techniques. Some of the women used items from Lake & Local's shop as inspiration, while others found ideas online.
After painting their masterpieces, they shopped while allowing their journals to dry, then got together in our Gathering Garden for a photo!
This was a fun way to start their Girl's Day, where they had lunch at Yesterday Cafe, grabbed a beer at Oconee Brewing Company, and hit all of the local shops together.
Thanks to Amy from Kent and Co Designs for leading the class, and Lane for allowing us to help her create a fun event for her friends!
