There is no need to spend a fortune on your Thanksgiving Tablescape. You can create a very pretty presentation for under $10.
My inspiration this year was the Niagara escarpment and it’s gorgeous fall beauty. The trees are just beginning to change and the hues of reds, yellows and oranges dotted throughout still striking green is so pretty. In another couple of weeks it will be a solid display of orange, red and yellow!
My sister hosted Thanksgiving dinner, but since she is still recovering from surgery we were more than happy to handle all the details. We popped in the morning to get the Turkey in the oven, ran a few errands and then came back with my Mom to get everything else set!
Before purchasing anything for your thanksgiving tablescape, shop your own home both indoors and out. Find a way to use what you have in a new way. I plucked some gorgeous red maple leaves from the trees in the front yard. I brought a table runner, my turquoise plates and ball jars and 4 wooden chargers from home. The only thing I purchased was 4 glossy orange chargers at Michaels for $1.00 each, and a package of 4 Thanksgiving napkins from Walmart for $3.98!
The maple leaf garland I borrowed from my sisters mantel. She also had some pretty red glittery candles and brass candlesticks to complete the look!
I used a few of my sisters good china plates. They are Royal Dalton in the pattern called Romance and the subtle turquoise floral border worked perfectly. I mixed matched the wine glasses and voila!
A pretty Thanksgiving table for under $10!

Good Morning Maureen, I would never imagine that you managed to create such a lovely table setting for under $10, which here in England I think is about £7.
I love the phrase ‘shop your own home’ as we all have items which we can use somewhere else in the home.
I am going to take a leaf our of your book and shop my own home in future.
You are such an inspiration Maureen! I am going to shop my home this weekend and decorate my table which I have not done in years. I love your blog, it’s so beautiful and delicious.
Thanks so much Lori!! I am eager for the holiday season and can’t wait to get back into the Christmas baking groove again! It is easy for us Canadians to forget you have your Thanksgiving to get through first!
