Tipsy’s Top Five Ways To Style Your Thanksgiving Table For About $20

November 14, 2017thetipsyhousewife

Obviously I like to make my Thanksgiving Table the centerpiece for my meal. After all, Thanksgiving is like the Super Bowl for food lovers. This year I wanted to incorporate food into the table-scape. I also wanted to try to do it all for around $20. I achieved my goal and wanted to share with you how I did it. Below are some tricks and tips so you too, can achieve this look for less.

  • Purchase Holiday decor after the holiday at a steep discount and pack away for the following year.
  • Shop Aldi or Jewel for flower bouquets. Both have gorgeous flowers for under $5 a bunch and you can mix and match to create stunning bouquets.
  • For Thanksgiving decor I buy pumpkins and gourds on Halloween or right after when they are discounted drastically. The pumpkins and gourds you see in my table-scapes I purchased for well under $10.
  • The Dollar Store is your friend! Some of the stuff can be tacky if it’s too much of it. But using some Dollar Tree stuff with a mix of fresh flowers and saved classic decor can affordably up your table-scape game.
  • Use food to decorate your table and home and you can eat it after! I plan to use the pumpkins and the Brussels Sprouts when I’m done displaying my decor.


In My Decor I Used:

  • 2 Medium Sized Pie Pumpkins
  • 4 Small Pumpkins
  • 1 Fairy Tale Pumpkin
  • Mix of 4 to 6 Gourds
  • 1 Bag of Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 Mixed Bunch of Flowers From Aldi
  • 1 Decorative Turkey I reuse every year
  • 3 plastic mini pumpkins I reuse
  • 2 Leaf Garlands I purchased from Dollar Tree
  • 1 Roll of Decorative Burlap I purchased from Hobby Lobby

Below you will see the five different looks I created using most of the same components listed above, in different ways.

All I need to do is add in my china settings, some un-scented candles, and the food, my table is complete!  I set up my table about a week before the actual Holiday and it makes for a pretty setting to look at and enjoy while you prepare for the big day!


Happy Thanksgiving!
