My blog friends and I have 27 last minute Thanksgiving Dishes & Table Settings to share with you.
Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, gather around the table and enjoy a meal. I am hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year and I have been working on my table setting for awhile. Your table is the focal point of the entire dinner. I want to show you how you can have a festive Thanksgiving table setting without spending a lot of money.
The plates I bought at Goodwill for $0.50 each. I was so excited to find these because they are actually real china. Score! The rattan chargers I found at Walmart and they were more than I cared to spend. I paid $4.95 for each one, but I really felt they would add to my place setting, so I caved. The Waterford crystal glasses were a wedding gift we received 15 years ago. It’s so strange for me to say I have been married for that long because it doesn’t feel like it. I only get the crystal out for formal dinners like Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.
The napkin rings I made thanks to another bloggers tutorial. I seriously love how they turned out. You can see the tutorial here. The cloth napkins I found at Marshalls. They were the perfect fall colors.
My Thankful Tree centerpiece I actually made. And it cost me nothing. I had everything I needed laying around my house. This will be our first year doing a Thankful Tree and I can’t wait! You can see my tutorial here.
I also designed Thankful Notecards you can print for Free. Each guest will fill one out and read it during dinner. I then plan to save these to read again next Thanksgiving .
I am so happy with the way everything looks! I hope this gives you some ideas on how to decorate your table without spending a fortune.
