Please allow me to present.... (Dueling banjos playing)
(by the way, I finally figured out how to spell coeur d'alene without looking :)
This isn't the best picture of the motel, but I'll tell you that the inside makes up for it's lackluster outer appearance.
We decided to stay here because it was almost directly accross the street from where the wedding was being held. It was the perfect location...we all walked to the wedding! :) And then stumbled back.
My point to this post is to show you all how creative and fun one can be on a small budget.
All of our rooms at the FH were themed. THat's right, themed! Only two of the rooms were labeled, so we made up our own names after seeing them :) You'll see what I mean:
Here is what WE called
"THE GOLF ROOM"
The golf clubs on the wall.....the "green" carpet... and if you look closely, there is a golf ball inside that little plant..lol
Hence, the golf room. :)
Next we have...
"THE SUNFLOWER ROOM"
Lots and lots of fake sunflowers....I didn't want to waste more then this picture....
ok, now lets move on to the rooms that were literally named! :)
I now present to you:
"THE VICTORIAN ROOM"
You thought i was kidding, didn't you!
But nothing says victorian like cherub angels:
And check out that wallpaper! So victorian!
Last, but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, we have.....((drumroll))
"THE GARDEN ROOM"This room takes the cake! lol....it was, simply put, jaw-dropping!
First we have the picket fence:
My cousin said: "Dang, it smells like a sauna in here!?" It was because of the STRONG smell of cedar.
Now I'll show you the trellis:
Just in case you were wondering, yes, that's fake ivy. This was in there room!!? What were they thinking?
This proves that you can be creative on a budget.
Our theory was that they started out with the Garden Room and then lost steam along the way. Ran out of ideas....maybe got tired of decorating and then just halfed it for the rest of the rooms.
