There are so many beautiful ways to decorate when money is no object or when you have a fairly high budget for such things but when you are limited and want to spend wisely there are still so many ways you can decorate.  I decorated my entire Thanksgiving table for under $15.00.

Thanksgiving Table Decor - Mom's Vintage Dishes

I already had the dishes.  They are vintage and were given to me by my Mother when I was a young bride.

Rosemary Sprig Mini Wreath

The napkins were on clearance at Target, less than $2.50 for a set of 4.

The flowers at each place setting are all from a large bouquet of Mums I purchased at Sam’s Club for $7.98.

To decorate these I loosely cut scraps of fabric from drop cloths to fit each can.  I pulled out my stash of doilies and vintage linens and ribbon scraps and wrapped those around the cans.  Each can is decorated differently and yet all together they look beautiful.  I also taped a button to one – I used double-sided tape so that I can easily pull it off and reuse the doily and the button.Upcycled tin can table decor, rustic and lovely.

This is paper from that roll.  I use it so often and it’s super handy on the Memo board.  p.s. If you’re thinking of making some Christmas gifts this year the Pallet Wood Memo Boards would be great – easy and inexpensive as well!doily-chargers-www-cupcakesandcrinoline-com
Vintage dishes seem to be a bit smaller than newer sets of dishes and you can use a smaller charger.  doily-charger-oneI have some larger doilies (vintage as well) that worked perfectly beneath the dishes.sharpie-pen-covered-with-washi-tapeMy thought behind using the paper instead of a tablecloth was that each guest can write down on the paper what they are thankful for.  It’s a great reminder plus a wonderful conversation starter.  The writing may go through the paper so if you are using a Sharpie be sure to adjust for that with extra paper.

Place a pen at each place setting for your guests.  Rather than have a plain pen wrap the barrel in washi tape keeping with the theme of your table and making even the pen special.
