Knowing how to host a Paint and Sip Party doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, we’ve gathered some perfect party menu ideas.

Read on to learn the best party snack ideas, including perfect wine and cheese pairings to serve at your very own Paint and Sip.

Choosing Wines

Perhaps you’re hosting your very own Paint and Sip Party using the simple Paint Party in a Box. Odds are, your guests will have varying palettes, both on their paintings and in their taste buds.

General party rules recommend having one white, one red, and one pink wine. But if you know your friends tastes and think different guidelines would be better, feel free to change it up. You should also offer non-alcoholic beverages in case someone doesn’t want to drink.

Match the Wine to the Painting

It can be a fun idea to match your wine to your painting. For example, choosing regional wines that relate to the painting’s subject can really elevate the party experience.

Maybe you’re painting the gorgeous nighttime skyline of Paris. Offering French wines to your guests can help tie the entire theme together.

Match the Wine to the Season

Depending on when you host your class, you can also have wines that match the seasons. For example, light and airy whites go great with the summer heat. Full-bodied reds can help you feel warm and cozy on cold winter nights.

Having wines that pair perfectly with the seasons is a great way to elevate the mood and make sure everyone feels comfortable.

Wine and Cheese Pairings

Most Paint and Sips will feature some snacks or a light meal to go along with the fun. Wine and cheese are a particularly popular combination. They might even boost your creativity!

Some popular Wine and Cheese pairings include:

  • Pinot Noir and Gruyère
  • Champagne and Brie
  • Moscato and Gorgonzola
  • Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese
  • Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Cheddar
  • Malbec and Gouda

Wine and cheese can also pair well with a variety of dried or cured meats. For example, smoky meats such as dried chorizo go well with dark reds like Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. Lighter, saltier meats such as capicola and prosciutto will do well with a crisp white such as Riesling.
