Do you like to play cards? Have you ever thought about hosting a card party? It's a great excuse to get friends together and if you keep it really simple and not too serious everyone will have a great time. I hosted a euchre party at my house last weekend and of course I incorporated lots of products from Creative Bag.

The spring weather was co-operative and I was able to hang a sign outside our house to welcome guests. There is always an few larger chalkboards in stores and on the website that are suitable for hanging indoors. I would not recommend leaving chalkboards outdoors for longer than a day and only under good weather conditions.

I really liked these pressed glass vase card holders and knew they would be great to use as table number holders for the party. I'm going to re-use them as photo holders in my home office. 

Note: I designed the table number cards and euchre score cards to co-ordinate with my party invitation. If you are looking for table numbers we have a great selection here.

Simple glass vases can be dressed up with striped ribbons to display flowers.

Everyone loves a sweet table and it's so easy to pull one together for a card party. I used an assortment of different chalkboard signs to label all of the treats that my daughter and I baked. I prefer to use chalk markers on my signs so they don't smudge but chalk works too.
Chalkboards on sticks are one of my favourites because they can be used with and without the base. 

Creative Bag always has an assortment of white ceramic serving dishes and cake stands in stores. It's easy to mix and match different shapes and designs because they are all white.

These new small chalkboard signs can also be used as escort cards. I used stacks of books as risers for food presentation. Each book was given a new cover that I created using black wrapping paper.

Mini cupcakes were easy to make party ready. I combined two cupcake liners and glued tissue paper tassels to plain wooden picks.

Every sweet table needs some candy to add a pop of colour!

I used assorted sizes of glass containers to present the different candies. Chalkboard labels were added to each glass container and small scoops made it easy for guests to help themselves. Leave out small bags, cupcake liners or small containers for guests to load up with goodies and take to their table.

Fill mason jars with coarse sugar or salt to display cake pops or anything on a stick. Complete the presentation by adding a chalk label and striped ribbon to each mason jar.

More chalk labels were added to milk, cream, sugar and tea containers at the self serve hot beverage bar. Wood and metal containers were painted with black chalkboard paint to
co-ordinate with the other chalkboard elements.
