Ok, so you’ve booked your party, you’ve filled the seats.  Now what?

What do you bring?

Let’s go through it together!

Step 1:

Whatever project you are doing the night of the party – make one!

Whatever you touch along the way, write it down.  This is a great start for your supplies list.

Suggested Supplies List:

Here is a list of what I made sure to bring to every party.  This list is comprehensive but you may think of some things to add!  

  • Wood (or whatever you’re painting on)
  • Stencils for the night
  • Transfer Tape
  • Stain
  • Paint
  • Stain and Paint Example Boards
  • Project Mock Up
  • Aprons
  • Tweezers
  • Screw Drivers
  • Tape Measures or Rulers
  • Scissors
  • Xacto Knife
  • Painters Tape
  • Small Paint Brushes
  • Sanding Blocks
  • Sawtooth Hangers

Disposable Supplies

  • Table Covers
  • Painting Sponges (or brushes)
  • Baby Wipes
  • Disposable Gloves
  • Garbage Bags
  • Paper Plates

Marketing Supplies

  • Business Cards
  • Giveaways
  • Ballots for Draws
  • Photo Props
  • Photo Release Forms 
  • Social Media Pages (printed on a post card so they can tag you in photos)


  • Music is venue doesn’t have music
  • Extra lighting if needed
  • Mic and speaker if needed

That’s a list that you’ll want to bring to each party BUT if there is something special happening at the party (a birthday, retirement, bachelorette, etc), you may want to consider a little something extra (a funny hat, necklace, game, etc…)

I will also say, bring EXTRA.  Extra boards, extra stencils, extra paint, etc.  It’s better to bring too much than to run out!

Now, I know it seems like A LOT.  And it is.  But if you pack it right, it’s not bad.  

I would pack my supplies that I use for each party in plastic bins with separate compartments (scissors, tape measures, etc) and my disposable supplies in a Thirty One tote.  This way, I knew before each party I would need to top up that tote with supplies. 

My paints I used the Thirty One Organizing Utility Tote with THESE BOTTLES
