Chalkboard Mini-Menu Frames

On Superbowl Sunday, we were expecting a house full of people, all bringing their favorite appetizers. To make the sharing & enjoying of the savory snacks easier, I grabbed some cheapie frames and chalkboard paint (leftover from these projects) and made some mini-chalkboards.

I separated the frames and took the glass out to paint into little chalkboards. After three light layers of the paint, I popped them back into the frames...

...and used them to mark the appetizers that were quickly arriving. Once the Superbowl was over, I rinsed them off and tucked them away for our next party. I think these would be great for a baby or bridal shower, too. Or maybe you could just use them for dinner ("It's quinoa, dammit!").

Stay hungry, friends, and stay homey!

  6. Wow! These are incredibly clever! I've never even seen an idea so unique and so effective! I am hosting a party in a couple of weeks, and in all of my careful planning and preparation, I've been wondering how in the world I was going to be able to find cute food labels. My plan, is to have just one long buffet table with a cute table cloth and then various plates of simple finger foods. I'd really love to be able to label them, and also the sauces and beverages. I just hadn't figured out quite how to do that and keep up the classy air that I'm shooting for. These are perfect though. So simple, so elegant, I love them! Thanks for sharing! I'm going to love seeing these at the party.
