As the holidays approach, many people don’t have the extra money to spend on fancy Thanksgiving table settings. Why spend money on that when there are so many other things to spend your money on.
That’s why I decided to decorate my table with things purchased from the dollar store. Everything you see on my table was purchased from the dollar store, except the silverware. But there is silverware at the dollar store if you need it. 🙂
I was so happy with everything I found at the dollar store. I bought 6 place settings and the decorations for under $50!
The main decoration on the table are the 3 vases I bought. They also had bags of rocks so I bought 3 bags of those and some fake flowers to put in the vase. I really like the way it turned out.
I couldn’t find cloth napkins at the dollar store, so I had to improvise. I used some twine and wrapped up the silverware. I love the way it turned out!
They have a great selection of wine glasses too. I bought the stemless ones, but they have them with stems and many different styles.
I also bought lots of candles for decorations. I love lighting candles for parties. I stuck to a vanilla scent so it won’t be too strong.
They actually had a table runner at the dollar store too. They had quite a few different colors, I bought brown and tan because I wasn’t sure which color I wanted to use. I ended up liking the brown more.
I spent about 20 minutes walking up and down the aisles at the dollar store looking for all of these Thanksgiving treasures. It was fun and I love the end result!
I hope this has inspired you to check out your local dollar store for an inexpensive Thanksgiving tablescape.
