Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas from my Pinterest Profile with you that I decided to play around with my own table and put together an Inexpensive Thanksgiving Table. Even though we're traveling for Thanksgiving next week, I couldn't resist the urge to use what I had on hand to create something simple. I'm not a tablescape expert, but it is fun to play!
I like the mix of rustic and fancy:
I found a stack of gold plastic chargers at the Target Dollar Spot, $2.50 for two. I brought eight home with me.
My "china" isn't fancy. My grandmother had some extra stuff she wanted to get rid of a few years back and gave me a set she wasn't using anymore. I think the gold chargers look pretty good with the gold rim and the blue and tannish-brown on my plates:
Last year, my table featured some brown place mats from Wal-Mart's Better Homes and Gardens line ($1.00 each!) and brown cloth napkins wrapped in jute twine. I went with the same idea this time, using my tan tablecloth and a strip of burlap for a runner. The rest of the items were added in from my Fall decorations!
I'm glad I have the blog, so next year (crossing my fingers that we'll be home for the holiday!) I'll just have to look here to see what I did! And I'm pleased to see that my Christmas plates look great with the chargers too!
Do you do have any special holiday table ideas that don't cost a lot of money to put together?
