A Watercolor Inspired Party with Painterly Days

Get excited, color-lovers! Because today your daily dose of color is a gorgeous one. Looking for a unique and colorful theme for that upcoming bridal shower you're hosting or perhaps a fun activity to incorporate into a "Will you be my bridesmaid?" brunch?

Why not throw a watercolor painting party? Paintbrush in hand, a glass of fresh painting water and a palette of pretty colors before you... you know what I always say, right? Life is short. So why not celebrate colorfully!

Friend and fellow color-lover, Kristy Rice for the Artful Life feels the exact same way. And so imagine my excitement when I heard the news that she just created a gorgeous series of beautiful watercolor painting book for adults!

You guys! I'm just thrilled to bits to have the opportunity to share with you a little glimpse into this gorgeous book series, entitled Painterly Days.
