Orchestrating a get-together can be difficult but you'll be able to let your guests know exactly what's what with this DIY chalkboard table runner.

This chalkboard addition to your table will let your guests know the contents of each dish, what libation is best paired or even what each guest contributed to the party. Also, this runner makes an excellent conversation starter by letting party-goers interact with each other by rating dishes or beverages. You can create this runner easily using chalkboard contact paper adhered to a standard table runner and voila. Simply place on any surface, provide chalk or markers and encourage engagement from the group. For a more intense effect, use the chalkboard paper on an entire table to allow your guests to let their creativity loose.
