Chalkboard Party Ideas

Ever since I saw how Jed of Jed Uy Photography used chalkboard as backdrop for my son’s photoshoot, I instantly fell in love with the idea. With enough creativity and of course, good handwriting/calligraphy/drawing skill, we can easily transform a boring chalkboard to our very own work of art. I love how it can instantly prettify a lot of things from the venue to dessert spread, some even based their whole party around it. Aside from its flexibility, it’s also inexpensive.

I’ve compiled here some of my favorite chalkboard party ideas.
