I have been waiting almost a whole year to share this post with you all!
I considered sharing our Thanksgiving tablescape with you right after Thanksgiving last year, but I figured it would only make sense to wait until fall rolled around again.
Can you believe I was able to wait this long?
Last Thanksgiving I helped my mom create this Simple Festive Thanksgiving Tablescape for less than $10!
We used decor that she already had such as old books, candles, mini clear glass vases, & faux fall leaves.
We even used an old piece of barn wood, that was left over from my wedding, to run down the center of the middle table.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention that we had 3 tables!
My sister brought a bunch of friends from college to join us last year.
So instead of having Thanksgiving dinner in the dining room we rearranged the living room & created an extra long table out of 3 tables.
My father & I have a special tradition that we’ve had since I was a child. Every Thanksgiving morning we make a quick run to the store & pick up a newspaper & anything extra my mother needs or forgot.
Last year we also picked up 2 bouquets of fall flowers, which I put to pieces & added to all of my moms mini glass vases.
I love how simple this Thanksgiving table was to put together & that we were able to create something beautiful & interactive for our guests.
If only Thanksgiving dinner was as simple!
ps. Don’t mind the Christmas tree. Ever since my sister was a little girl it has been a special birthday present, from my mom to her, to have the Christmas tree up for her birthday.
This year her birthday will be on Thanksgiving.
And to be honest, I think it adds a special glow & a unique touch to our family holiday traditions.
I’d love to see your Simple Festive Thanksgiving Tablescape!
