    Creating Affordable and Intriguing Thanksgiving...

    thanksgiving

    As you think about decor for your Thanksgiving Day celebration, there are lots of ways to keep your costs in check while making the most of your decorative ideas for the day. Cheap table linens are perfect for facilitating creative decor without overstretching your budget. You can find a lot of options in cheap table linens for the holiday, focusing on earthy colors like rust and brown. Contrast these selections with mustard and orange hues. Use a deeper and darker color for the basis of your table decor, adding layers of brighter shades in your selection of place mats and table napkins. Chair sashes can add a truly unique sense to your Thanksgiving feast. There are many pre-made chair sashes to consider. You can also explore bulk fabric that can be used to create your chair adornments. Fastening fall foliage embellishments to the points at which the chair sashes are tied can add to the festive feel of the occasion. You can use contrasting fabric to create rich visual effects. Pin name tags to each sash to designate your seating arrangement. Incorporate party games into your table and chair decor, placing numbers or symbols that are able to be exchanged for door prizes later. How do you get the most ‘bang for your buck’ from your table décor?

    Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas

    thanksgiving

    Whether you’re planning a big Thanksgiving dinner, or happening to have a party with a Thanks theme, there are more than the traditional pilgrim styles t o decorate your table in. When it comes to picking out Thanksgiving tablecloths, it’s fun to make a spread that is as colorful as you are thankful! Thanks for the Earth A green tablecloth makes the base for this very earthy table setting. Add orange napkins, rich brown or burgundy napkin rings, and a pale green or brown table runner for contrast. For centerpieces, straight fall gourds and fruits will make a great touch for color and from the earth feel. Formal, Fine like Wine The fine like wine, burgundy table setting is a classic for Thanksgiving. The color palate provides a rich look, that we’re sure isn’t just there to cover up for when someone spills. The burgundy tablecloth is also a deep backdrop for your fine white china to shine against. Paired of course with burgundy napkins and a flower arrangement of warm red, pink, and peach blooms will complete the rosy, formal table. Natural Accents When it comes to adding those final touches to the table, don’t be afraid to get nutty. Literally. Acorns, pinecones, and red berries cleaned and tied around your napkins are a smart way to impress the guests. Any brown twigs tied up with twine and a die cut note card printed with “I’m thankful for” can be pulled together in a snap to tidy up any orange napkins you don’t have the time to fold in an fancy manner.
