Set a Thanksgiving Table From the Dollar Store
I headed out to my local dollar store to see if I could style a table for Thanksgiving ENTIRELY from that store.
Here are the items I bought, my total spending was $64. Not necessarily a bargain for a table for 6, but if you already have plates or glasses or placemats, your expenses would be less!
I rolled out one full roll of white wrapping paper and then topped it with three rolls of oak print drawer liner. This gave me that "natural" feel I was looking for.
These beautiful plates made all the difference! Can you believe they were only $1? I sat them on top of felt leaf placemats and gold chargers to emphasize each place setting. The ONLY item I did not get from the dollar store for this tablescape is the flatware. I used my wooden handled Ikea flatware to coordinate with the oak-look runners.
I couldn't find unique salad plates, so I added a willow wreath to each plate and tucked a jar full of golden wrapped candies on top of the plate, inside the wreath as a take home favor for each guest.
The centerpieces were larger versions of the willow wreaths topped with an orange dinner plate. A rustic miniature pumpkins, some gold embellished votives and a sprinkling of faux Fall leaves is all they needed.
A beautiful table is all set for guests to come together and give thanks for all of the blessings in their lives.
