Low Cost and Easy Thanksgiving Table Ideas

Monday, January 6, 2014

Even though Thanksgiving is late this year, it seems to me like it came pretty quickly. I'm not hosting our family dinner, but I plan to go to my parents house a few days early to help with preparations and to set the table for our Thanksgiving celebration.  And I'll let you in on a little secret.  I'm not a big holiday decorator. I usually put a few holiday touches in each room, but I don't go to too much trouble.  It has to be easy and it has to be practically free.

Extra points if you can name any of the plant material in the arrangement below. Those big green things that looks like brains are the fruit of an Osage Orange tree.  We used to have one in our back yard and every year it dropped tons of these big green fruits. They provide great color and texture.  The small red berries look like Nandina berries, and we have one of those growing wild in the woods behind my house. Throw them in a big white bowl with pine cones sprinkled on top for a colorful, natural centerpiece.

There is beauty in simplicity.  Behold.

All you would have to do to create the tablescape below is take a walk around your property with some scissors.. And please take note of the simple glass jar as vase.  

I love this idea.  Upside down wine glasses become a fun group of candle holders.  So smart.

It's a Southern thing, ya'all.  Magnolia leaves as chargers.

1. Partially fill a simple glass vessel with water. 2.  Put some fruit in it.  3.  Add a floating candle on top.  4.  Put it on a tray with found sprigs.  Done.  I really have done this one before and it looks great!

And finally, winter fruit in blue and white containers. That's what I'm talking about. 

This is just the beginning. I'm sure you smartypants have some cheap and easy Thanksgiving table ideas.  Share it with me in the comments!
