Chalkboard Party Décor

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I love using chalkboards for party décor. It’s a very versatile blank canvas. Let me show you four ways to incorporate chalkboards into your party themes.

1. A chalkboard can serve as a tray for both display and labeling. I’ve used a plain thin board painted with chalkboard spray paint for this application. These Bistro Chalk Pens are ideal for labeling. They produce vibrant colors and wipe clean with a damp cloth.

2. Signs and backdrops are another great way to use chalkboards. This way you can use the board over and over. Here, I attached the cherry piece with removable adhesive.

3. Go bold with a chalk wall! My friend, Katy, painted her dining room wall with chalk paint. She now has an instant backdrop for any party.

4. Finally, I love taking advantage of the printable versions of chalkboards for food labels. You can find a printable chalkboard background here and some of my favorite chalk fonts here.

Ikea Tolsby frames provide the perfect means for display.

I used some of my favorite washi tape to dress up these white Tolsby frames.
