One of the things all the guests at MB’s bridal shower really seemed to have fun with were the chalkboard dipped champagne glasses I’d made to go along with the mimosa bar. I originally found the idea on Pinterest from the blog Just Short of Crazy.
Here’s how we made ours:
First you’ll need a can of Rustoleum chalkboard paint which you can pick up at your local Lowe’s or Home Depot (about $10 for a quart). You’ll also want to spread out a few sheets of parchment paper to let the glasses dry on.
You can either pour the paint into a bowl or just dip the glasses straight into the can. Both are effective.
Slowly dip the base of each glass into the paint up to the point you want covered and then slowly turn the glass over and over letting the excess drip back into the can.
Carefully set the glass upright on the parchment paper to dry.
Continue with each glass. Every few minutes or so, move the glass to another clean spot on the parchment paper. Not only will this eliminate any sticking to the paper, but this tends to help remove more of the excess paint giving you a cleaner finish.
After you’ve moved each glass a couple of times, leave them on the parchment paper to dry overnight. That’s it!
Now you can have guests personalize them as they wish. This really helped eliminate confusion at the bridal shower since everyone was drinking the same thing and turned out to just be a lot of fun to write on your own glass. Guests used chalkboard pens purchased from Amazon.
