Tea Craft Tuesday: Silver Chalkboard

This sort of project has been around the blogosphere for a while now.  But I am sharing it on today's "Tea Craft Tuesday" because it would make a lovely addition to any tea party.  I associate tea parties with the British tradition of taking afternoon tea accompanied by silver, porcelain, and beautiful linens. This project adds an elegant, though practical, touch to a tea party event.

The directions are quite simple.  Select a flat-bottomed tea tray.  I purchased this "silver" tray at the dollar store.  Paint the flat inside of the tray with chalkboard paint, following the directions on the chalkboard paint package.

1) Put this project near the front door to greet your guests with a message of welcome.
2) Write your food or tea menu on this silver chalkboard tray.
3) At a large event, write directional instructions on chalkboard signs. For example, "Ladies' powder room this way."
4) At a fundraiser tea party thank an event sponsor with a note written on the tray.
5) Congratulate the bride-to-be or the anniversary couple with a note on the tray....

The possibilities are endless.
