Chalkboard Chic

Chalkboard Invitations, Place Cards, Table Numbers, Party & Home Decor, and  More

It doesn't take more than a minute or two perusing Pinterest to know that vintage is in.  Brides have especially been loving our vintage tin tile  outdoor wedding photography backdrops and magnetic seating charts & escort card boards.  Today we want to make sure every one is aware of the newest trend in vintage — chalkboard everything.  At first we thought it it was our personal obsession after discovering a ceiling tile chalkboard  but after my daughter called and said she painted a chalkboard wall and created 2 chalkboard side tables in her summer apartment rental, I knew I was on to something.  Izzy is always a beat or two ahead of burgeoning trends.  And then today, I opened my email and there waiting for me was a note from Tiny Prints with the subject  “Chalk it up to Birthdays”” featuring their latest fashion forward invitations.

So today we have chosen to  showcase this chic new chalkboard trend in invitations and suggest coordinating your place cards / escort cards, table numbers, party & home decor.  Once we began our quest, we were amazed at how much chalkboard “stuff” is readily available online. Plus, as Izzy could tell you, you can easily transform just about anything into a chalkboard decor yourself using a can of chalkboard paint or chalkboard peel & stick papers.

Just a note of caution – if you DIY, make sure you check the color on the container.  Turns out chalkboard paint comes in both black and green.  I wanted black but mistakenly bought green paint.  I ended up trying the green, not liking it, and repainting my ceiling tile chalkboards with the black  chalkboard spray paint.
