Our Engagement/Housewarming Party - Setting Up - Part 2 - Chalkboards

Hey y'all! I'm going to continue the engagement party series of posts and talk about all of the chalkboard writing I did for the party. I painted this huge chalkboard in our dining area (see post here) and I wanted something really cute for the party, see examples here, but I just didn't have the time to do anything fancy and just stuck with a simple "Amos and Ashley Engagement Party."  Plus I would like to invest, down the road, in some type of projector to help assist in design and fonts when I draw/write on the chalkboard, especially since it is so large and a big focal point in the room. 

I plan on taking a calligraphy class in November so hopefully that will help with future chalkboard writing 
Two weeks before the party I had a chill Saturday evening and while I was watching TV I decided to work on some of the smaller chalkboard signs and labels. What better way to work on stuff then when you are relaxed and drinking a nice glass of wine in bed! I had my laptop out and I did a few searches in pinterest for chalkboard fonts and once I found what I liked I started to freehand the font on the smaller signs/labels. I was really pleased with how they turned out and excited; so excited that I got up, from the cozy bed, and started to work on the setups for the dessert and drink stations. Here are a few shots of the chalkboards and me starting to set up the dessert and drink stations.
