There's nothing like gathering your best girlfriends, getting gussied up, and going out for drinks—especially for a bachelorette or birthday party. But what could make the evening even better? Uncorking a bit of creativity along with the wine. Pulling out some paint brushes for the beer. And getting artistic with more than just cocktail recipes. I'm talking about throwing a little paint into the mix—making memories and a masterpiece on your ladies' night out—at a Muse Paintbar.

Muse Paintbar combines painting instruction with a restaurant and bar—and besides painting sessions 7 days a week, they also host private events. So if you're a bridesmaid looking to plan something fun and different, Muse is perfect. Every location offers a cool atmosphere and creative vibes. You can choose from paintings based on difficulty, theme, season, party type, and more. Or, have something custom commissioned for a personal touch. 

You're likely to work up an appetite while getting your artsy on at a paint party. No worries. You can order something tasty from the their kitchen or cater in your own food. Same goes for music—choose from one of their fun playlists or bring your own. And the best part? The bar is stocked with beer, wine, sangria, and soft drinks.

Based on my three favorites of those beverages, I whipped up three mood boards to inspire your paint and sip party planning. These are all bachelorette-based, but you could make easy tweaks to turn it into a birthday bash or other special event. 



Get creative with craft beer.
For the brewery and craft beer loving bride, keep it simple, cozy, and classy with crisp typography, neutral colors, and some indie folk playing in the background. Brown craft paper for invitations and gift bags. Spoil the bachelorette with beer soap, a personalized growler, her own beer flight kit, and a fancy bottle opener. Thank guests for coming with a cute beer glass and opener.

Pair some vino and Van Gogh.
I think out of all the beverages, wine lends itself most to inspiring creativity and artistry. Go all out girly with glitzy gold details and pretty pink rosé. Choose invitations that are cleanly and crisply designed, but colorful. Lavish the bride with a lovely wine glass, wine candle, glittery bottle of bubbly, agate stopper, and gold wine accessories, like this wire wine rack or bottle opener. Gift the guests with sassy glassware and a lip tint that gives a wine-stained look. Put on some Spice Girls for a fun finishing touch.

50 shades of sangria?
Mmm, sangria. So fruity, tasty, and festive—perfect for a bachelorette party full of color and painting. Start it off on a colorful note with a paint-splashed invitation. Let the sangria and masterpieces-in-progress add the color, set against laid-back gray, black, and white. Play something you can sing along too. (Taylor Swift, anyone?) Give the bride a comfy sweatshirt naming her favorite things (sangria among them), a gorgeous lipstick in a sangria shade, and fabulous pitcher for future sangria nights at her place. Send the guests off with a goodie bag full of cute coasters and a sangria scented candle.

I love muse! We had a double date at the one here in garden city (ny) and we had such a great time! I'd invite my sister in law to go to the one by us again OR head to the one in Rhode Island and invite my best friend who lives there!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
