The Morning After the Night Before

The "decorator magazine" Blackboard. Neat, precise, organic.

I mentioned in my last post that I was a) hosting a party last night and b) had recently installed a blackboard in my dining room. I know you all had visions of it looking like the one above. With my shopping list to remind me to pick up organic eggs and to take Jack to piano lessons.But I also told you my style is relaxed, casual, hippy, and that I don't take my house too seriously.

So when, I combine my friends, good wine and a little cup of colored chalk....the results are far from magazine worthy.

50 year olds and chalk.!





Because our friend Barry likes a lot of attention, I made the cake all about him, with little cuts outs of him that I skewered with a toothpick and poked them in the top. Although it doesn't look like it in the little cut outs, he does have 2 arms.

  6. Sounds like so much fun! I love chalk. We saw sidewalk chalk in Walmart the other day and I squealed like a little girl. (She pops out sometimes when I least expect but she's always welcome to show herself.)

  7. What a fun party! And the cake - fabulous! As for chalkboards, I just put one in the kitchen and am tired of the dust. Next time I am at Michaels I am going to get some of the those chalk markers everyone raves about!

  14. A blackboard as precise as that isn't a real blackboard. Yours is so much more fun! Great looking cake too. xx
