WFMW: Dinnerplate Menu

I have had a huge response to the dinner plate menu that I’ve featured in my posts a few time before so I’ve decided to post a simple tutorial for creating your own “Dinner plate Menu”.

Start with a plate.

I’ll use a one round and one oval white ceramic plate. I’ll also use an oval decorated ceramic plate. (Although the glass is in the picture, I learned that it did not work well since it was transparent.)

Choose some dry erase markers.

I’ll use black and red.

You’ll need a plated stand or holder of some sort.

Now just write your menus, to-do’s or notes. Just erase when done.

Have a great day.

    I have done this before — for a party. People loved it! It fit with the theme too, because I had guests decorate their own plates with quotes (with permanent marker).

    That is a great, great idea!

    (And I am glad to find someone else who uses the same rules that I do too. Other moms look at me like I have a third eye when I make my boys adhere to our rules, but I am so glad that I can take our boys out into public and know that they will act like gentlemen.)

    It’s an Edith Edith Schaeffer “Hidden Art of Homemaking” thing, truly! Even nice–she used a chalk board I think! I love it. What a beautiful touch!

    That is so hot! I would never have thought to use dry erase markers on dinner plates. Thanks for sharing this great idea!
