It's no secret that colouring pages for adults are a growing trend right now with all the benefits that they give. So we aren't surprised, with all these benefits, to see them crop up as a girl's night out alternative! Yep. Some people are trading a noisy night out on the town for a night of laughs, creativity, and colouring.
And why not?
Sure, colouring is a good way to enjoy some solitary fun, but it can be a great deal more pleasurable to do it with friends. And since it doesn’t require too much concentration, you will still be able to enjoy a great gossip session with your gal pals while creating your very own artwork. With this in mind, we decided to give you some tips on how to host a smashing colouring party.
Tip #1: Pick a theme
While you can host an ordinary party with just some snacks and refreshment for your friends, it's all the more enjoyable if you have a theme. You can do "Coffee, Cookies, and Colours", "Colour Between the Wines", or "Colouring and Cocktails". With your theme picked out, you can then choose what decor and refreshments you want to set out. You can even send out themed invites just for fun!
Tip #2: Provide a selection of adult colouring books
While some of your friends may already have their own stuff, it's always a good thing to have a selection at hand for first-timers, (not to mention that some of your guests might also want to try something new)! After all, colouring is all about unleashing creativity. Don't forget to look around ye ol' internet for free adult colouring pages too!
Tip #3: Set out various colouring tools to experiment with
Everyone has their own preferences – some like colouring pencils while others prefer markers. But it’s nice to mix things up once in a while.
Tip #4: Use colourful snacks and refreshments to brighten up the party
It doesn’t matter what your theme is, you can always serve something colourful to match your activity. Coloured cookies or cocktails will definitely brighten up your party.
Tip #5: Create a colouring challenge
While colouring and spending time with your friends is definitely enjoyable, why not bring the fun up a notch with a challenge? One idea is to use only three colours to complete a page. Or why not make it a bit of a contest for the most unique or creative colouring, providing a goodie bag or prize for the winner! There are a lot of other challenges you might propose--just use your imagination!
Hopefully, these tips will help you get started with your plans to host a very memorable colouring party for you and your friends. And when you’re done, and your party has been a success (which of course it will be), don’t forget to set a date for the next one!
