Chalkboard Menus for Napa Valley Wedding

This was one our my favorite weddings to work on.  Beaulieu Garden is such a beautiful place for a wedding.  The lovely details were planned by Laurie Arons Special Events.  She came to us and asked us if we had ever done a chalkboard menu.  We hadn't, but it was so much fun creating these of the things we enjoy is a new challenge.  We used many different materials and methods to create these menus. When we couldn't find exactly the right chalkboards, we made our own using chalkboard paint.  After that we silk screened the menus onto the chalkboards and even put real chalk on the finished menus to make them look authentic. It was so much fun that we decided to make 3 large chalkboards to use as the escort boards for seating.

  1. I love this idea! I also love the votive holders. Were these purchased or DIY?
