Be Mine, Valentine…
To compliment our beautiful “Sealed With a Kiss” dessert table, I wanted to challenge myself to create a valentine’s tablescape on a small budget. My goal: minimal effort (and expenses) and maximum impact!
Here’s what we came up with:
Table Activity: Cootie Catchers – FREE! Print from your own home computer. My template comes from The Pretty Blog and is available in three colors: Pink, Red and Black.
S’more Favors: Contents include – Heart marshmallows (1.99/bag), Graham Crackers (1.99/box), Chocolate bars ($1/each), Ribbons ($1) and Clear box (FREE, extra from a previous event). If you’re interested in purchasing a box similar to the one we used, you can check PaperMart for affordable options. Total Cost of Favors (6): $10
Red Crush Drinks (optional): $5.99/case. We happened to have some at home, however this can be omitted to cut costs.
- Table Runner: $1 from Target
- Table Cover: FREE Reused from a previous event. Look around the house for bed sheets, curtains, or light blankets that fit your color scheme for a free table cover.
- Table Setting (plates/napkins) $3 from Target
Total Cost of our Tablescape: Under $30! A small price to pay for an evening of FUN!
I hope our tablescape challenge has inspired you to create a fabulous table at your next celebration!
