Chalk It Up with Chalkboard Inspired Favors

Hello again Blossomers!

I hope you all had a relaxing Easter weekend visiting with friends and family! We sure did, and I’m excited to be back detailing one of the product lines that Event Blossom has launched this year:  Chalkboard Inspired Favors! The Chalkboard trend is on the rise in the creative and crafty scene. Chalkboard is said to be one of the top three trends in crafting and was even featured at this year’s Craft & Hobby Association’s Conference. It can be seen in home decor, advertising, and on party favors.

With over 60 options to choose from, your customers will find a favor matching their celebration.  Choose between personalized or DIY, blank Vinyl Chalkboard Labels. Our personalized labels can be customized to a variety of event themes, including weddings, birthdays, graduations, and more. In order to make our Chalkboard Labels pop, the Event Blossom design team has added more detail to the icons and given the option to choose between vintage blue, pink, mint, and white as an icon color, all appearing as if they were created with chalk. Of course, all personalized labels give you the option to add your name, event date, or a personal message.

Some of our more popular labels & favors include:


Flag Labels

Frame Labels
Our blank DIY Vinyl Chalkboard Labels and favors are another option for your customers. These heavy duty labels are easy to peel and stick.  With blank centers and white borders, customers can use regular chalk, thin point recommended, or chalk markers and turn any glass or ceramic favor into a place card or table number for their guests.

Our popular blank labels & favors include:

Framed Chalkboard Table Easels

Chalkboard Place Cards

Framed Place Cards

Leaving the labels blank will allow guests to write their own names, or whatever they please, which is also a great way to mark drinks or places at a table. Afterwards, they can wipe the labels clean and reuse their favors at home, which make them quality keepsakes for any event.

Our team is packed with creativity that we love to share with you and that you can share with your customers.  In honor of Earth Day, our Tuesday Tip is a DIY project we found reusing tin cans, which most people have in their pantries. Turn any tin can into a charming and inviting lantern for your garden or home that omits light through punched out holes. Finish these lanterns off with some paint and you’re done! Tin cans also make great, eye-catching desk accessories as pencil or pen holders.

Check out these simple projects and more on our “Eco-Friendly!” Pinterest board and visit our Facebook and Twitter to tell us your ideas for projects that reuse everyday items.

Get Your Game On

Hello again Blossomers!

I hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend! Have you been waiting in anticipation for our next update? Well you’re in for a challenge today! Come play some entertaining party games with us! Event Blossom has released Bingo, Scratch Off Cards, and Shower Games!

Who doesn’t love a game of BINGO? Your guests will have a blast playing this fun and interactive game! Our Bingo Cards are pre-printed with numbers or words related to your celebration and no two cards are alike! We’ll even provide you with a word list, so all you have to do is tear the words out, drop them in a bowl, and draw at random. Guests can use a pen to cross the words or numbers off, or you can get creative and use a sweet treat like Life Savers or even our personalized Hershey’s Kisses chocolates as markers. With almost thirty different designs to choose from, you can easily find Bingo Cards to match your celebration! Your Bingo Card package will contain sixteen cards, with the option of personalization. Just make sure your guests don’t forget, get five in a row and yell BINGO!

Invite your guests to have their hearts race anticipating a win on our Scratch Off Cards! Your guests will scratch off the silver icon and a reveal a hidden surprise. Revealing cookies in our pregnant woman’s belly will be an upset, but the guest who finds the baby is a winner! Each package comes with eleven losing cards and one lucky winning card. These exciting Scratch Off Cards are perfect for wedding showers, baby showers, and even Bachelorette Parties!

Our Shower Games give you the option to choose from three interactive games your guests can participate in. Each package includes ten game cards of all the same game and an answer key. You can add striped pens to any game order to accessorize your cards and give your guests as a keepsake.

Our Word Scramble game cards will have your guests unscrambling words related to your occasion. You can even have a timer ticking away for added pressure. The guest who unscrambles the most words in the time given wins!

The next Shower Games option is called “What’s In Your Purse?” Your guests will go through their purses and mark off the items they have in their purse that are listed on the card. The more uncommon the item, the more points rewarded. The guest with the highest points wins!

Our last option from our Shower Games is our Sweet Candy Bar Match Up. Your guests will match up words related to your celebration with popular Candy Bar names. For example, “bridesmaids” would obviously match up with “Hot Tamales”!

Now for an Easter themed Tuesday Tip? This is a personal favorite egg dying tradition of mine. This simple and fun trick is for “Dinosaur Eggs”. You just need your normal egg dying accessories such as, eggs, dyes, and vinegar. All you have to do is gently crack the hard-boiled eggs before dying them in your selected colors. Hide them for your egg hunt and allow the kids to peel away the eggshell to reveal the “Dinosaur Egg” or do it yourself and use them as a deviled egg side dish that will bring beautiful, bright colors to your Easter feast! A simple, fun project the whole family can enjoy! Check out this project and many more on our Spring Themed Party board on the Event Blossom Pinterest page and be sure to visit our Facebook and Twitter pages for fun Easter facts and tips all week long!

Until Thursday Blossomers!

Back in Bloom

Hello all you lovely Blossomers!

I know what you’re thinking, “Where have you been?” A few months have passed since we last spoke, but our amazing design and production staff over here at Event Blossom have been nurturing and planting new ideas for updated layouts with new designs and icons. Not only does Event Blossom have new designs, but I am also a new member of the team.  Kim is off to a new adventure, so I will be taking over the reigns and making the Event Blossom blog my own!  My name is Julie and I am so excited to be chatting with you every week!

Spring has definitely sprung here in our offices. Just take a look at our lollipop bouquet that has blossomed!


Not only can you expect whimsical and creative ideas, such as our lollipop bouquet shown above, for upcoming holidays and events, like Spring and Easter, but you should also look forward to updates on our new layouts, our new lines and items, and great DIY projects. Be sure to check back with us every Tuesday for a “Tuesday Tip”!

This week, I found a quick and easy Spring DIY project you can use as a decoration this Easter.

Pinterest Umbrella DIY

All you need is an old umbrella you have around the house, some ribbon, your newly bloomed Spring flowers, and some eggs that you and your family have decorated. Check out this project and many more Spring themed ideas on our Pinterest board “Spring Themed Parties”!

New items are in bloom here at Event Blossom! I look forward to sharing them all with you!
