• Have You Heard of Plant Nite?

    Plan a date!

    I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with Paint Nite. If not, Paint Nite is an event that usually takes place in the back section of a restaurant where you’re encouraged to drink a bit of liquid courage and become inspired enough to paint a picture you thought you could never paint. Yup! A resident artist guides you step-by-step through a series of how-tos and you’re eventually left with a beautiful canvas to bring home. All the art supplies are free. Some places even allow you to bring your own booze. Best of all, you don’t need to be an artist to join in on the fun.

    Plant Nite, however, is a different activity in and of itself. Instead of painting a picture, Plant Nite goers create their very own terrariums! When I found out about Plant Nite, I knew I needed to hop on the gardening wagon. I immediately scheduled an available date around my birthday and invited a few girlfriends to join in own the fun. Don’t worry, you don’t need a “green thumb” to excel. These fun events are really open to all, regardless whether you know a lil’ something something or nothing nothing about plants and painting.

    Step 1. After the gloves went on, we started building the bottom layer of rocks!

    Step 2. The succulent soil comes next, and we packed a lot in there!

    Step 3. We got to choose two succulents, plant them, and spritz them with water!

    Step 4. The staff gave us extra small rocks in different colors and dyed moss to decorate!

    Let me know in the comments below what you think! I totally recommend going to Plant Nite. It’s always fun to get your creative juices flowing after a little booze.
