A Sign of "LOVE"

I decorated the sun room table for Valentine's last week, but was trying to wait a while to show it.  I guess it's close enough now that I can share it with you.  Nothing fancy at all.  It's done on the CHEAP.  Nothing is new accept the 2 tapers.  I already had everything else.  So here it is!

 The "LOVE" sign is a Kirkland's find a couple of years ago.  It was brown and not very attractive at all.  So...... know what I did?  I got out the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and gave it a quick once over, waxed it with dark wax, and distressed it a little and now, I "Love" it!!!  It's sitting on my little shabby stool on top of the table.  I purchased the shabby stool and the pink cherub at the same time from Chic or Shabby, a nearby shop.

 The arrangement is made from the same flowers I used last year, purchased at the Dollar Tree.  

 Love the little red box, a consignment find.  The centerpiece sits on a piece of mesh ribbon I had left over from Christmas.

 Guess what?? The plates are plastic, and the 'napkin' is tissue paper.  No one will be using these of course, but I thought they looked cute. 

 These cupids were Christmas ornaments in their former life.

 This angel came from Dollar General last year.

To bring some Valentine love to the dining room table, all I did was add the two heart shaped vases with roses atop doilies.  (Dollar Tree items)

I hope you have enjoyed seeing how inexpensively you can decorate for Valentine's.  

I'll be joining in a number of parties this week.
