Hi Friends! I was recently invited to Pinot’s Palet for a painting party. I had a wonderful time! Paul the owner was so nice and our teacher was so nice and patient! **I was not paid for this blog post however, I was allowed to paint for free as a guest of Chelsea’s**.
I drove to Apex for the party and I didn’t have any trouble at all finding Pinot’s Palette. I got there and was welcomed with lots of smiles. Chelsea Vanderpool, a fellow TriFabb blogging group member invited me. I was happy to meet her in person! I received an apron to wear to protect my clothes and I ordered a glass of Moscato. It was so refreshing and I enjoyed sipping my wine as I painted. Paul, the owner, and Denise, our teacher were so nice in making sure that we had everything we needed whether it be wine, snacks or more food. Denise gave us an overview of what we would be doing and we proceeded to paint our pictures step by step with her guidance. It was so much fun!
Here you can see my vase taking shape. We followed our teacher, talked, laughed and had a break every now and then. Next, we added the flowers and then the leaves. I like the fact that this was a free-flowing picture and not too structured. At first, things didn’t look like they would take any sort of shape and then our teacher would have us do the next step and whoa! Our pictures started to take shape and pop! Everyone did such a great job on their pictures. Every picture turned out good!! I was so relaxed and happy and I couldn’t wait to show my family my picture!! They were very impressed!!
I highly recommend Pinot’s Palette. The people are nice and the classes are so much fun. When we took a break, Paul took me on a tour. They have a glow in the dark room! It was so neat to see the pictures glowing! You can book that room for parties and team events or even a night out with the girls! Pinot’s Palette is great for date night, my husband and I will have to go there soon. I loved the gallery walls that showed examples of pictures you could paint. The artwork there is beautiful! Here are some of my favorites:
I will definitely go back. I might even try glow in the dark painting!
Enjoy your day today and go do something fun!
