We’ve all been there. There’s a Pottery Painting night for your Moms Group. Someone comes up with it as a creative date night idea. You need something to do with your pregnant friend that doesn’t involve margaritas with salted rims. So, you end up at a Pottery Painting place staring at a giant wall of white dishes and wondering how you’re going to maximize your $50.
I have your answer!
Paint a Birthday Plate. A Birthday Plate is a plate that is only used on someone’s birthday. It designates the recipient as special, it is festive and gorgeous for photos, and it will be used and loved by everyone in your family.
The Birthday Plate I painted comes out four times a year, and I can’t imagine our little at-home family birthdays without it. I painted it in 12.5 minutes, and then spent the rest of the time at the pottery night drinking Sauvignon Blanc and saying “you missed a spot” to my friends.
So, schedule a girls night out, or just file this one away for the next time you find yourself painting pottery.
