It’s that time of year! I love it! Yummy food, the gathering of friends and family. The holiday season is officially beginning. This month and next there will be several posts and tutorials and free printables to help you have a wonderful holiday season. Today’s post is just a whimsical and simple, inexpensive tablescape.
I am adjusting to a new climate here in Florida. It seems there is really only one season here… well, maybe 2: Summer and Rain Season. Thanksgiving traditionally has been sweaters, blankets, heaters, etc. So I guess this tablescape somewhat represents my warm weather Thanksgiving.
Lime green and a brighter navy that coordinates with my main floor color palette.
I really didn’t spend a whole lot of money on this… and actually, I purchased most of it to be my year-round dinner place settings.
The plates are just an everyday dinner and salad plate. It is just regular stemware (all of which we inherited with the purchase of our furnished home).
I bought the napkins and placemats off Amazon. The links are below.
The cute fabric pumpkins I purchased from the dollar bin at Target a couple weeks ago. But I bet you could make them if you are crafty at all.
The floral arrangement I made from silk flowers that I picked up from Michael’s and JoAnne’s. I never pay full price for silk flowers… I always wait for them to go on at least 40% off sale or clearance.
I take a more minimalistic approach to holiday decorating (with the exception of Christmas of course).
I try to make it work with my existing decor rather than compete.
But you need to do what works for you. If you like to live it up… I say go for it! A lot of my reasoning is I usually am the spending money on other design projects rather than holiday decor.
**There is a sneak peek in this picture of one of the free printables I will be giving away in my official Thanksgiving table coming soon!
Hope you got a little inspiration for your own home that could translate into your existing decor!
Here are the links to a few of the featured items in the room.
All in all, I probably spent $6.50 per place setting, but only $1 to make it Thanksgiving festive. The other $5.50 is something I can and will use the rest of the year.
You could easily take this concept and translate it into your existing decor. All it really takes are some cute pumpkins in your existing color scheme and some coordinating fabric napkins. Amazon really has a nice large selection.
