DIY Chalkboard Wine Glasses and Girls’ Lunch Tablescape Idea
I love to entertain my girlfriends! Getting together to gab about what’s going on in our lives, the latest gossip, their new love interest, and more always produces a good time. And of course, we have food. There is always food. And wine. Yes let’s not forget the wine.
Now that the weather is finally warming up in mid-Michigan, I thought it would be fun to have a Girl’s Day Luncheon. But add a twist to this luncheon. Instead of just gabbing and drinking wine, we’re going to make DIY Wine Chalkboard Tags.
Sometimes when you’re drinking, laughing, and not paying attention, you can easily pick up the wrong drink. Oops. Yup, I’ve done this a few times in my life. So, I’m sharing with you an awesome Girls Luncheon Tablescape idea, plus a few ways to make DIY Wine Chalkboard Tags!
If you have read any of my posts, you already know I have a thing for wrapping paper.
For this tablescape idea, I picked up some fancy turquoise and gold wrapping paper from Home Goods. ( I found a similar one you can purchase on Esty- here)
Most of these items I put together by shopping my own decor closet. However, I did make a pit stop by Michael’s, where I snagged this small white and denim cloth material. One thing I love to do is mix up colors and add different designs.
The turquoise plates I scored on clearance at Pier 1 a few months ago. It’s amazing the deals you can score by patiently waiting for a sale and scouring the clearance racks of your favorite home department store.
The Martini Glasses can be picked up anywhere. I remember scoring this set for under $5 bucks at Kohl’s. (Bargain shopper strikes again!)
I scored again on the table clothes from Pier 1. That clearance rank is a gold mind at times.
I just LOVE the way this look came together.
Now, let’s talk about the DIY Chalkboard Wine Tags. I’m all about doing DIY projects the easiest way possible. I don’t consider myself that creative or a true DIY’er, but I try. So, I have a few options on how you can go about making your own DIY Chalkboard Wine Tags.
First Option: Make your own Tags with Chalk Spray
First, you need wine glasses. You can purchase some HERE or have each lady bring their own wine glass.
You will also need painters tape.
Next, create a square using the blue painters tape.
Once you have created your square, lightly spray the can of chalk within the square. Or if you’re using the paint, then paint carefully within the square. With both options be careful of paint or spray dripping.
I found it easier to hold the glass in one hand or flat on the table so the wine glass is on its side.
With this method you will have to watch it to make sure it doesn’t drip. However, it drys fast!
And then when it’s all dry it comes out like this:
Not too shabby!
The next option consists of picking up some chalkboard tags.
You can find chalkboard tags online, at Hobby Lobby, Pier 1, Michael’s, and JoAnns.
And they will usually come in a pack of 4 or more.
Grab your wine glass and a chalkboard sticker. Stick it on the glass. Make sure it’s in the center.
Boom! You’re done!
How EASY is this option? Super easy, right?
I have an even easier option for you. Most stores carry wine glasses with the chalk board labels already on them. All you have to do is buy it! You can check out the one Pier 1 Import carries for under $6 bucks each.
Of course you will spend more money with option 3, but you will save on time. So three simple options on how you can create your Chalkboard Wine Tags.
And if you don’t want to write your name on it, you can always go with crazy. 😉
I picked up a few goodie bags from Target so each lady can safely carry home her wine glass. Add a few final touches, including a pop of pink and gold, and this Girls Luncheon and DIY idea is done!
When’s the last time you hung out with your girls? Or had them over for a FAB luncheon?
If it’s been more than 6 months, it’s time to call them up and make it happen. Having good friends is a necessity to staying sane and living life. I value my family, food, and friends. My close girlfriends are an extension of my family, and I wouldn’t trade them for anyone else in the world!
Hopefully, this tablescape idea helped you get your creative juices flowing to put together your own party idea.
