• {It’s in the Details + A DIY} Chalkboard Details

    I love the DIY feel and laid back vibe of chalkboards in weddings.  You can use them for so many different things, and can “dress them up” or keep them low key.  Here are some of my favorite uses:

    To display seating assignments, in lieu of escort cards:

    As Escort Cards:

    Drink or Signature Cocktail Menu:
    For messages for your photo booth guestbook:

    To explain your photo booth:
    For Menus or games:
    Top:  Sarah K. Chen, Bottom:  Via Once Wed

    For Various Wedding Signage:

    Bride and Groom signage (for photos, thank you cards, etc.):
    To explain a tribute to a loved one (and I love this tribute idea):

    As table numbers:

    The table number above is also a great DIY project.  Find candle holders that have a smooth surface.  Paint them with chalkboard paint (available at any craft store).  Once the paint dries, you can write the table number in chalk.  Put in a candle, and voila, DIY candle holders / table numbers.  LOVE this idea!

      Love this! A bride needed help using chalkboards in an aging church basement and I sent her this fantastic link!

      I love chalkboards in weddings and I’m thinking of doing a photobooth guestbook with them! Any idea where to get that size? I can only find big ones or little teeny ones like the Happily Ever After chalkboard size.

      Aileen, I’ve found lots at stores like Michaels. Also, check flea markets as they often have medium sized ones that are unique. You could also always make your own by picking a size of something that you like and painting it with chalkboard paint. Good luck!

      these are all awesome ideas! chalkboard paint has so many uses it’s fun to see some highlighted here. In college we made the back of our apartment door into a chalkboard “quote wall”

    •  Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨

Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo
