Freehand Painted Glass + Peach Bellini Recipe
By Priscilla Castro

When I set up my brunch table, I look at all the details. That's why, when it came to choosing the glasses that I wanted to include for the Mother's Day brunch that I'm gonna be hosting for mom this weekend, I wanted to make sure that even the glasses would pop on the brunch table rather than just have a regular shmegular old mimosa or peach bellini in a clear glass. With this quick and easy way to paint and style your glasses for your mom-osas for this Mother's Day, your brunch will be something your mom will definitely be talking to her friends about.

materials
  • 6 stemless wine glass
  • white semi gloss spray paint
  • peach or coral acrylic paint
  • blue alcohol ink pen
  • 1 bottle prosecco
  • 1 1/2 cups peach juice
  • 1 tablespoon blue agave syrup
  • peaches
  • carafe

If you already know you're going to tackle making this awesome minimal painted floral vase for your Mother's Day brunch tomorrow, these painted glasses are the perfect pairing to complete your table. Not only that, if you know you're going to be pouring rounds of mimosas, or in our case peach bellinis, here's how you can upgrade your regular glasses to something that can't be found anywhere else. Let's get to it!

Freehand Painted Glasses

Step 1: Start off with a clean glass to start painting. We used a stemless wine glass that works perfect for mimosas, wine, and for our own peach bellini recipe. Using white semi-gloss spray paint, begin spraying the bottom of the glass and gradually move up midway to create a fade effect on the bottom of the glass. Wait for them to dry completely.

Step 2: Once the paint has dried, begin. adding dots and brush strokes to the bottom of the glass to create a freehand pattern. For the strokes, we used a a coral orange color and made sure that they had a quick brush effect to her. For the dots, we used an alcohol ink pen to create a variety of dots on the glass that would stay on the paint longer than a regular marker. Go around the entire glass with the pattern to finish the design. Once done painting, make sure to hand wash the top of the glass just as so you don't have any paint touching your drink.

Peach Bellini Recipe

Step 1:  Begin by adding 1 1/2 cup of peach juice to your carafe. This entire recipe will yield 4 full wine glasses and about 6 champagne flutes.

Step 2: Add one full bottle of champagne or prosecco to the carafe.

Step 3: Finally, add one tablespoon of agave syrup to your recipe. If you do not have agave syrup, you could also replace this with simple syrup. Mix thoroughly.

Step 4: Garnish with a peach slice, pour and serve!

And just like that, your mom-osas or peach Bellinis will be super Instagrammable for this Mother's Day weekend! If you like this glass design or created your own for Mother's Day, show us by tagging us on Instagram and using #BeMakeful!
