We love to decorate for the holidays knowing that we will be surrounded by family and friends. The decorations, food display, centerpieces- It can be expensive. 

Check out these super easy and affordable ideas to create a beautiful table setting on a budget!

Table Cloth

Luxury fabric tablecloths are over rated, especially if it will end up with stains by the end of the night. Stick with something simple and inexpensive like a brown craft paper table runner! You can find these in rolls at your local craft store. Purchase stencils to create a message for your guests or have your guests decorate their own place setting how they wish.

Natural Materials Centerpiece

We love to see natural elements incorporated into Thanksgiving decor! Take a stroll in your neighborhood for natural materials like pinecones, leaves and twigs to place sporadically on the table runner. You can even purchase small pumpkins or gourds to displace. For a touch of color paint them a lovely metallic gold!

A Splash Of Color

With all of these natural elements it’s nice to break up the neutral color palette with a splash of color. Choose to have brightly colored glassware or napkins for your guests. A mustard yellow or bright red really set the festive mood!

Plates And Candle Holders

Plates are most times the most unique feature of a table setting. Instead of purchasing these sets brand new consider searching thrift shops or unique finds with tons of character! Thrift shops are also a great place to find those aged yet stunning candle holders we love to admire.
