I needed some place markers for our Mother's Day table...everyone loves to have a place marked with their name, right? Don't you enjoy knowing where you should sit? Well, I'll do...plus a little place marker adds to the table decor!
I purchased small terracotta pots and painted them with black chalkboard paint. I painted the tops of the pots with white craft paint. It took a few coats of paint and a bit of drying time---then they were ready to label.
Have you seen these fun Chalk Ink pens? They're super easy to write with and they erase with soapy water. Perfect when I'm ready to use the pots again with different names or sayings.
I found pink impatients that matched the color theme of the party...so I slipped one little plant in each pot. No extra potting soil needed!
Of course I had to add a bit of ribbon to each pot! Everything looks better with ribbon! (I put the pots on little glass dishes, so I could water them without ruining my tablecloth. These little plants need a lot of water!)
Don't they look cute on Mom's birthday party table? We celebrated my Mom's birthday the day before Mother's Day. Did you miss my post on the super-easy pink cake and brownie pops I made? Click here to view. Also, if you want to see how I turned the pots into a cute teacher gift click here!
