A New Twist on Paint and Wine Night

Ever since this whole paint and wine night craze exploded, we’ve been total skeptics. Who wants a horrifically toned painting of a giant flower or the likeness of a scene from a Tim Burton film hanging on their wall? The answer is nobody—we don’t care how much wine they serve! But then it dawned on us: we’re in the business of making things pretty. So why not design our own paint night full of gorgeous hues, adorable details and, of course, plenty of wine. The result—captured by the fabulous Caitlin Kellagher of CJK Visuals—was a summer citrus dream inspired by the night’s painting and enhanced with gorgeous flowers from Monteray Farms and a sparkling citrus sangria from Hair O’ The Dog.
