Chalk Talk

Let's talk chalk. 

Chalkboards and chalkboard accented items for entertaining and decor are always showing up on my Pinterest feed.

Have you ever prepared something for a gathering and forgot to serve it? A visible menu may prevent that from happening.

I found this cute 10x10 board at TJ Maxx for $7.99. Keep an eye out, Maxxinistas.  

I like the combination of color and texture on this cutting board as opposed to an entire slate. If you are a DIYer, this can be achieved with chalk paint. I found a similar style on Amazon.

Guests can personalize wine tags with their initials or a design.

Great alternative to a sign or unique way to send a "Congratulations" or message to a friend.

For the chalk look... cute (FREE) gift tags. Print these out on card stock.

I know I would need this otherwise my lettering would look like grade school scribble.


  1. I love everything chalk related - I think it stems from my childhood dream of being a teacher haha!! I still have not mastered the Chalk Pen - it doesn't quite look Pinterest worthy!! Please share how you decide to dress up your TJMaxx find!

  2. I love the chalkboard look, but feel like I could never make it look nearly as cute as all the images I see on I'm a lefty and probably would smear it, haha!
