Chalkboard Birthday Party, Bridal Shower, Bachelor or Bachelorette Party Invitations

You see chalkboards everywhere these days - they are one of the hottest trends for weddings, birthdays, and showers. My husband recently turned thirty, and I decided to throw him a surprise birthday party at his favorite bar downtown. I wanted to create a beer-themed invitation that was masculine enough for him. He brews his own beer and loves to try new craft brews, so I decided an invitation with some beer glasses would be perfect. I decided to go with the chalkboard theme since it is gender-neutral, and I'd been wanting to make some chalkboard invitations for awhile.

Here is what I came up with for his beer invitation:

I love how the leaves look like hops. Although this was for his birthday, this invitation would be great for a bachelor party as well. It's great for an event for the man in your life, who enjoys beer, brewing, pubs, bars, etc. It would be great as a 21st birthday invitation as well!

Since I had the male invitation, I decided to do a female version with some wine glasses and cosmopolitans. These would be great for a bridal shower, birthday party, or bachelorette party. I could even create one with all wine glasses if you're having an event at a vineyard.

You can find of these invitations in my Etsy shop, here.

Looking for some other chalkboard-inspiration. Here are a few of my favorites:

Although some of these items appear like they are designed for kids, such as the milestones print, they could easily be customized for a 30th birthday party or a bridal shower. How cute would it be to use the milestones print for facts about the happy couple and how they met, for a bridal shower? And the pillboxes could easily be used for favors for a shower, or even a bachelorette party. I had to do a treasure hunt for items at my bachelorette party. The bridesmaids had a list and I had to ask random strangers for items. The pillboxes could be used to hold a short list that each bridesmaid has come up with, or for storing the items the bachelorette has successfully obtained. The possibilities are endless. 

Hope these have brought a little inspiration for your next party or event. As always, if you'd like a customized design or have something in mind (like a chalkboard postcard or wedding invitation) just let me know and I'm happy to set something up for you.
