DIY #6: chalkboard table number pots

Hey lovelies! How have you been enjoying this week so far? How about your wedding plans? I love to hear what you are all up to, so please get in touch and tell me all about your day!

I’ve got one of my own DIY’s to share with you today.  A really simple idea for a rustic or garden wedding that looks fantastic (even if I say so myself!)

You will need:

1 x terracotta flower pot

1 x length of natural jute twine

1 x spray chalkboard paint

1 x white chalkboard pen (with a chiselled tip)

1 x plant that coordinates with your wedding scheme


1.  Make sure the pot you are using is clean and dry, then spray with chalkboard paint, ensuring you cover the edges and the top of the inside of the pot

2. Once dry carefully write your table numbers on the pot (you can practise on a spare piece of paper if you like)

3. Fill with your chosen plant and pack with soil (I chose Greek Basil for a wonderfully aromatic and deliciously scented tablecentre)

4.  Tie a length of twine around the top of the pot, and finish with a bow

I can’t wait to see some of you try this one out!  Why don’t you send me your pictures or let me know how it goes in the comments section below?

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
