Teacher of the Year Reception 2014 - Chalkboard Theme

It was so exciting to have women chosen in our school system to be the "Teacher of the Year", plus the "Support Staff of the Year" to also be a woman.  This mean that I could decorate using the color PINK! :)  

One of my sisters-in-law had recently done a chalkboard theme, so I copied her idea. Chalkboards are popular, but also fun! This chalkboard paper roll came from Target.
The pink just made everything bright and happy. And since it was teacher check-out day, I'm sure EVERYONE was really happy!
 The Tipton church of Christ provided the meal for the luncheon, which was held at the fellowship building.  The menu was smoked pork loin, smoked chicken, twice baked potatoes, green beans, homemade bread, and salad.
 I couldn't get pink roses, so had to settle for pink carnations for centerpieces, but they were still beautiful!
 My husband added some artwork to one of the chalkboards. See his nice bird? He's been perfecting it since he was a young boy! :)
 For an extra POP of color, I added in one bouquet of brighter colored flowers.
 These tulips and roses are actually fake, but they look very, very real. Some thought they were!
 It was fun designing these chalkboards for each recipient.
 I think I could practice and practice and never get as profession looking as some you see.
 And that's okay.
 The chalkboard cake was so cute!  The bakery did a fabulous job, despite the fact they spelled one first name wrong. It was an easy mistake.

 The gifts for each of the winners were amazing!
 We have such generous people in our community and surrounding communities!
 What a blessing!
 If you're looking for chalkboard things, Target is a must-go-to place. The banners all came from there.
Some of the young ladies from Tipton Children's Home served the teachers and staff.  Service with a smile, for sure! Of course, after they served, they were able to eat themselves. Perhaps that's why she's smiling?! Maybe so. I don't blame her one bit! :)
