DIY Hand Painted Summer Party

DIY Hand Painted Summer Party

When the weather is nice, I'll take any excuse to dine al fresco. Kristen went the extra mile and created a hand-painted dinner party, complete with paint-dipped glasses and ikat plates. 

For the glasses, Kristen chose stemless wine glasses and dipped them in paint to create a petal pattern.

For the ikat plates, she freehanded a loose, diamond ikat pattern. Kristen has mad painting skills, but the open, imperfect look is probably attainable for even non painting pros.
