Mon Amour - La Fin

Here are a few more pictures for you all from our Valentines Banquet!  If you like what you see, be sure to come back tomorrow for my FIRST GIVEAWAY!  

This is what greeted people as they entered the church.  Of course, everything looked better with the lamps and candles lit, instead of overhead lighting, but you get the idea!  :)  

We created a small seating area with the pastors' chairs.  I stole almost everything here from my living room.  Someone brought fresh flowers too.  

I made three of these with Scripture passages on love in French.  I got them the font and size I wanted, saved them as JPEG files, then used this website to give them an aged feel.  At the end I tore the edges.  Super simple project!  You KNOW I had to get some toile in there somewhere!  :)  

The Dollar Tree had these wooden ovals.  I painted each one with a few coats of chalkboard paint and placed them around the room with French words and phrases.  

Our candy dishes were small terra cotta pots painted with chalkboard paint.  I spent about $30 for everything - I was very happy with how things turned out on a shoestring budget!  :)  


And I know I should have a picture with hubby for Valentines, but it is on someone else's camera!  So for now, I get to show off my cute middle sis.  We had fun sitting together at the banquet!  

See you tomorrow for the GIVEAWAY!
