Valentine’s Day Menu {Framed Doily Menu}

Curb Alert Valentine Doily Menu

I am so excited to be a part of this month’s CopyCat Challenge over at Debbiedoo’s Blogging and Babbling.  I had many ideas rolling around in my head

 and the moment I saw this picture at Better Homes and Gardens Christmas  Ideas Magazine I was tickled pink, well red.  My friend and I are hosting a Couples Valentine’s Dinner for a bunch of our friends and I am excited to decorate for it (on a budget, of course). 

I am copying this Framed Doily Menu.

The menu idea was featured in the article “Holiday Party Ideas” along with many other neat inspirations.   I love how the ideas are so versatile and can be used for any occasion.

Time to get busy, I already had many of the items on hand – frames, glue, white paper, scrapbook paper, scissors – so easy.  I found this frame for $2.99 at Goodwill last night.  I was just going to take a picture out of a frame on hand but for that price I went ahead and bought it.  The sales lady at Hobby Lobby looked at me weird when I asked where the “doilies” were located, she had no idea.  She still gave me a strange look when I described them as “you know, what old ladies used to decorate their coffee tables with?  Oops, wrong thing to say to a lady quite a few years to my elder! (so sorry, mam)  so I searched with blinders on because Hobby Lobby is tooooo tempting for my budget right now! and found the doilies in the cake section -duh.  
Got my supplies – Now I am ready!

I just made up a little romantic french menu with some inspiration online, glued the paper to the doily, glued the doily to the scrapbook paper, glued the scrapbook paper to the frame insert – DONE!

I’ll have to change it up a bit for my own Valentine’s party since I don’t cook and the only french food I know of is La Madeleine. We are having an Italian Dinner theme and Valentine’s is a few weeks away so I have plenty of time to tweak it a bit!

And there you have it, my Valentine’s Day Menu.  I love it!  It gets me excited to put the final touches on planning for our party.
