Entertaining, Party and Wedding Reception Ideas with Chalkboard Font
My twin got married on our birthday last month. Okay. When I say twin, I don’t mean identical. I don’t even mean fraternal twin. Cheryl and I had gone to the same church for awhile, months, years together. And then one day we were playing an ice breaker at an event where we were supposed to arrange ourselves in birthday order. We discovered not only were we born the same day, but we were born the exact same year. She is the taller one…and the older one, though:). We have called each other twins ever since.
It’s DIY Time , where I post something you can do yourself rather than buy, which is a money saver, and can be VERY REWARDING. Some of these posts are inspirational crafts, sewing projects, homemade cleaners, homemade health aids, tutorials, and the like.
So this year on our birthday Cheryl got married, and I was (and still am) so excited for her!! My friend Ginger did such a fabulous job putting all of the artistic details of the wedding together. I took some pictures (I was not THE photographer) of the outdoor reception and loved the details of the wedding so much I asked both Ginger and Cheryl if I could share the beautiful food, ideas and gorgeous chalkboard fonts with you.
Ginger is seriously a talent! She is so creative and has serious skills! She personally wrote out all of the chalkboard font including this welcome sign. Control and patience that takes (I am beginning to sound a bit like Yoda:).
It was a tad damp at times, but definitely not wet enough to squelch the party atmosphere and celebration of two lives coming together as one. So exciting!
Lanterns outlined part of the yard.
Beautiful displays of flowers surrounded the reception area coordinated by our friend, Kim.
There was dancing. My girls sure loved learning the routine, and I can still find them running through their dance moves at times!
For beverages there was latte punch which is always a hit with the coffee lovers,
along with citrus water, lemonade, and coffee.
They had a S’mores Smorgasbord display with…
S’mores Trail Mix,
and with S’mores Bites. What
S’more can you ask for?
More chocolate I suppose? They had a chocolate fountain with skewers…
good for dipping strawberries,
marshmallow and more.
And there was another dessert bar area…
stocked full of mini cheesecakes,
cherry and apple hand pies,
and chocolate mousse.
And then even more.
And now comes the cake.
Look at the details of the quilted wedding cake with that ribbon of frosting.
And the wedding cake flowers.
See why I asked to share these wonderful ideas with you? There was such attention given to all the details I had to ask. Blessings to the new couple, and thanks for letting me share, Cheryl and Ginger!
