Thanksgiving in the Dining Room

Where did October go? Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! Well, I'm already for family and friends to take part in a lovely feast remembering our country's history. 

This year I went a little more simple than in years past. In the interest in time, I made a one stop trip too target and picked up the table runner, cloth napkins, cream colored pumpkins, and little pumpkins on the plates. I get a lot of questions about about my leaf garland. I actually got that at the Target dollar spot last year. It was $3.00- I couldn't pass it up!

To decorate my table, I started by putting the table runner down first. Then I added my medium sized pumpkins on cake stands, and added the gold candlesticks. That was my base. From there I added pumpkins, and the floral beads.

 I used a lot of what I already had. The burlap and wood bucket on the buffet table, I've had in my closet for years - so I thought I'd bring them out to give a little cozy farmhouse feel. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's tricky to use old and new decor together. It's nice to save on money, but always fun to have new! 

Just know that decorating doesn't have to break the bank, and stress you out. Look for a few key pieces and a great matching color scheme!
