With all those tables full of food, you can't always be around to tell everyone what each item is. Wouldn't it be handy to be able to just write on the plate so people can see for themselves?
Say you have a bunch of cheeses and you want to list them, or a few types of dips? This Chalkboard Platter is perfect for parties so everyone knows what's what on the plate! Check out this ridiculously easy tutorial below!
- Wooden Platter or cutting board
- Chalkboard paint
- Painters tape
If you want to have a border around your chalkboard area, mark it out with painters tape.
Then, put your first layer of paint over the entire surface, being careful around the edges in case your tape pops up.
Let it dry completely, and apply a second coat. Remove the tape and let it dry completely and that's it!
Write whatever you want on the board using regular chalk! Whether it's the ingredients of the dish so people with allergies can keep track, or just a simple "Bon Appétit!" your guests will be very impressed!
Add your snacks and get ready to party!
These are so quick and easy to make you could have a few around the room to make sure everything gets labelled!
