Chalkboards are a great and versatile way to add character and personality to your next party.  When I hosted my father-in-law’s “Drowning in Milk” dessert table, I upcycled a framed picture and painted it with chalkboard paint.  The chalked messaged (not the one above) looked great hanging above the desserts.

So when I came across this post from In My Own Style, I knew I needed to pull out the chalkboard and get it ready for the next party (in this case, paint it yellow).  Diane shares how to draw like an artist on a chalkboard.  I am using her tips for my cousin’s party sign (above) and then also for my kids’ family birthday party later in August.

It is hard for me to come up with anything artistic on my own, but if I can see how something could look, I can recreate it.  For example, seeing how the text should look in various fonts makes it much easier to write it on the chalkboard.

“The Glamour Room” pictured above is my first attempt.  I can’t wait to try something else!

Here is the gorgeous chalkboard art from In My Own Style.  Isn’t it beautiful?

How can you use chalkboard art for your next party?
