Such a long way from school days of basic black or green! Hudson Paint's chalkboard paint is available in 24 colors including Safety Orange and Genius Pink Genius. $25 per quart.
Creative ways to use this paint are as a photo backdrop like Good Housekeeping did in their Dec '09 issue. Guests could draw their own message or picture and then be photographed in front of it in lieu of a guest book.
Another option is to paint your serving pieces with menu details as shown below.
