Chalkboard paint has been my friend lately...I've been decorating bridal and baby showers with it. We will take old metal trays and paint the center of them with chalkboard paint then we will write the menu on them. It's a cute little accent!

Chalkboard wine glasses? Yes, please! This is a great idea if you're hosting a party. Maybe buy some cheap glasses so you don't invest too much. Another cool idea is painting the inside of your kids or husband's lunch box with chalkboard paint! Just do one side, and it's perfect for leaving a cute note everyday!
