Blackboard Signs

By Claire

Just a short post about something I forgot to blog about earlier: my blackboard signs. These are so easy and cheap to make, but are such a nice touch and keepsake, or even to give away as a thank-you gift after the day.

Blackboard painting! (Probably not the best idea on the dining room table..)

The idea originated from my Dad (who owns a printing business), when he said “Oh I’ll do a sign for the bottom of the drive to show guests where the house is” as, basically, we live in the middle of nowhere. I thought it would be a nice touch to have a big gilt framed blackboard saying something along the lines of “Dav & Sal’s Wedding” or “Wedding This Way!”, and handily I had a spare gilt mirror lying around the house since we moved.

Like most of the wedding paraphernalia (vases I’m thinking of you), I got a little carried away. I ended up making smaller blackboards for the cake table (to say ‘Let them eat cake’), the guestbook, parking, the toilets, etc. They’re so cute though, and we’ll be using them for our couples shoot idea which I’ll be blogging about soon.

So there you are, just a short one, but such a simple and effective idea. Give it a go!
