Rustic DIY Project Makes Food Pop!

ilene, from Come On, ilene! posted this great idea on Pizzazzerie.  It's a DIY slate cheese board.  For brides serving cheeses as part of their hors oeuvres this is an easy way to display them that will really make your appetizer buffet pop.  All it takes is a piece of slate and some self-adhesive felt pads.  Read more on Pizzazzerie's site (see link above).  Sometimes making your appetizers rock is all about display and this inexpensive and rustic look is the easiest DIY project I've ever done!

I debated over whether the hardest part of this project was turning on my computer, reading the directions or driving to the hardware store! So you can see, it's obviously not rocket science! And perfect for the bride who wants to do some DIY projects that it would be REALLY hard to ruin and that don't take up too much time.  Be sure to read the guest post on Pizzazzerie so you get the correct measurements for the slate. 

You can take a piece of chalk and identify your cheeses for your guests.  Ilene has really hit a home run with this simple but rustic and elegant look. I think this is the easiest DIY project I've ever done--so if you're a novice DIY'er--give it a try. Even if you don't use it for your wedding it would be great for entertaining or even for gifts.
