Here are a few pictures of the ladies meeting that I decorated for. I had planned Vintage Shabby Chic decor for our Mother/Daughter banquet. It was canceled due to tornadoes.
This decor was for our Ladies Meeting at Church. I went with a Hot Pink & Black & White Damask theme/color. Alaina helped me & we stayed busy all day making puff balls and flowers!
I had a budget of $50 so I made every dollar count!
I decorated the vases with scrapbook paper.
We made the hanging puff balls and pink flowers in the vases out of tissue paper. We made the black & white flowers with tulle.
The table runners were a roll of wrapping paper cut down the middle. That made a big impact for a small price! I had enough paper left to make paper fortune cookies (with scriptures inside that went with our theme) but ran out of time!
I saw this tank top at Dollar General about a month ago & had to get it so I could match the decorations! How cute is that??
Most things were bought at Hobby Lobby. Here is the run down:
Tablecloths (I had to buy 5) - $12
(noticed later that dollar general had some for the long tables for $1 instead of $2)
Table runners (wrapping paper) - $3 roll w/40% coupon
8 Vases (dollar tree)- $8
Black pokey sticks - $4
Pink curly pokey sticks (Dollar General)- $3
Scrapbook Paper - $6
Tulle - $5
Tissue Paper - $10
Grand Total - $51
I could have saved about $10 if I had known the table cloths were cheaper at Dollar General, and that I wouldn't use as much scrapbook paper & tulle!
How was that for cheap & easy decorating??
