Pumpkin Painting at Macy’s
Saturday, Oct. 19, noon-3 p.m.

Macy’s at Alderwood Mall is really packing in the spooky spirit of Halloween, with many of their STORY events revolving around autumn-themed crafts.

Among them is their pumpkin painting workshop, which takes place this Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.

Children and adults alike are welcome to pick out one of the provided pumpkins and unleash their inner artist. Make it beautifully sparkly, or bright and colorful, or opt for something terrifyingly spooky―whatever works for your fall home decor this year.

Available are bold pattern stencils, glitter, and plenty of paint color options, so you’ll have everything you need to create a work of art.

But don’t miss out, the Macy’s STORY pumpkin painting workshop is only available for a three-hour window, while supplies last. Get there early to get first pick on the pumpkin of your decor dreams!

Get Spooky With A Magic Paint and Sip
Sunday, Oct. 20, 5-7:30 p.m.

Surprise, it’s another Paint and Sip class! But if you thought it’d be like any other restaurant-held, painting workshop, you’d be dead wrong.

This Halloween-themed rendition is taking place at The Rec Room Bar and Grill off Highway 99, at 5 – 7:30 p.m. Led by local artist Jen Owen, the event is giving attendees not one, but two options:

An upcycled vinyl record prepped and primed for painting, or a wooden plank board―perfect for a front door or entryway. The vinyl record option is $35+ tax, while the wooden plank board goes for $50+ tax. Ultimately, it’s all a matter of preference, and existing home decor style.

Whichever “canvas” you choose, the mission is the same: follow Jen Owen’s instructions, learn her tricks of the trade, and create something stunningly spooky just in time for Halloween.

Included at the event are all the materials (paints, brushes, sealers, stencils) needed to create the design, and the first drink of the evening. Any additional drinks or food items are extra but heavily discounted due to Happy Hour.

Obviously, thanks to the drinks involved, this is a 21+ event. Attendees are required to pre-register and choose a canvas prior to the event. Anyone who arrives at the restaurant without pre-paying can still choose one of the available pieces, but selection will be limited.

Space is limited, and tickets go fast for these events, so please prioritize registration. You can find further details and registering options on the Eventbrite website.
