A tradition that we have had every year is allowing our daughter to spruce up the holiday table. Since she was little, she has taken the time to make our Thanksgiving and Christmas tables special. From cut out name tags to complete settings, she really makes it look amazing. During some of those times, money was tight and we could not buy fancy place settings so we had to do what we could to make it look super cute. There are 3 ways to spruce up your table for the holiday that are easy and don’t cost a lot of money.
One of my all time favorite ways to set a Thanksgiving table is by adding flowers. Now, back in the day, I picked what I could from the yard, but these days I rely on FTD flowers.
They have the prettiest holiday sets available on their site — and the prices are super affordable.
#2 Fancy Paper Plates
I always purchase fancier paper plates for the holidays because 1) I hate washing dishes and 2) they really dress up a table and make it look very festive.
#3 Napkin Rings
This year, my daughter added real cloth napkins and napkin rings to the table and I was amazed at how beautiful it made the table look.
By adding all of these three simple pieces of the puzzle to your holiday table you will create a beautiful tablescape that didn’t cost an arm and an leg to put together — and everyone will want to know your secret.
Now — out of all three of these, the flowers are the ones that you need to make sure you purchase as they are the #1 centerpiece that every table needs.
