Disclosure: This evening was graciously sponsored by Painting and Pinot with delicious food provided by Street Breads.
As moms, we are SO busy painting on our own “canvases” of the life we are building. Sometimes, it becomes a challenge to put daily life on hold to have a little fun. At Red Stick Moms Blog, we strive to bring you authentic and meaningful content that is relatable. We are all in the midst of different seasons and creating our masterpieces…. but last week we decided to throw caution to the wind and pick up a real paint brush. Our team was given the opportunity to enjoy a night out to bond, laugh and paint with Painting and Pinot. Some of us had experienced doing this type of thing, while others were rookies.
Before the splashing of paint got started, Street Breads showed up to offer us some delicious bites. We had the pleasure of noshing on their pressed panini sandwiches, gulf shrimp accompanied with sun-dried tomato and basil pecan pesto hummus, Salsa Rojas, Chipotle Sauce, and Guacamole with corn chips. They even provided a delicious adult beverage called a “Red Rooster” which definitely hit the spot.
After our food fest, Violet Tremblay, the wonderful owner of Painting and Pinot began our class. We each had a blank canvas with an apron and paints. We chose to do “Swamp Sunset”…reminiscent of the swampy scenes found in our beloved Louisiana. She patiently walked us through step by step, making each of us feel like a pro. Everyone’s paintings came out beautifully, yet each of our paintings were unique.
We also took this opportunity to gift our contributors with one of our favorite things. Our writers received custom RSMB and Baton Rouge themed necklaces from local artisan, Mimosa Handcrafted.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and highly recommend Painting and Pinot for your next event. They host public parties and private parties. You can always look on their calendar to see what is available. The private parties are perfect for bachelorette parties, birthday parties, girls night out, kid’s birthday parties, family night and any other event you might have in mind.
