Tuesday Trends: Chalkboards

Feb 12, 2013 9:55:37 AM Mahaffey Tent & Event Rentals

Chalkboards have made their way into the limelight! Coming from the classroom into the party, these decorations provide a perfectly simple, yet unique touch to any event. Whether your style is sophisticated Southern or all things vintage, chalkboards can be incorporated in so many ways. Consider using chalkboard tags for cups or giveaway goodies, over sized boards for menu options or editable cake toppers at your next soiree.

While you may not be a pro at calligraphy and some things personalized will have to be special ordered, several chalkboard ideas are an easy DIY project! Anything can be turned into a chalkboard with chalkboard paint found at your local hardware store. Paint coffee mugs, wine glass bases, rustic wooden signs or old window frames. Here are some of Mahaffey's favorites!
