We're hosting both families this year for Thanksgiving (31 people as of right now!). I'm doing a trial run of our table(s) and sharing all of the thrifted goodness that I plan on using.
I'm going to use four long folding tables and set them up in the basement so we can all(hopefully) eat together in the same room. I ordered some inexpensive white table cloths and burlap runners to give the tablecloths a rustic look. You can't go wrong with simple white and burlap and I will defintiely reuse them all. Then I pulled out my stash of fall type decor.
Most of it is thrifted or free!
I'm using disposable (gasp) dishes this year to keep my Thanksgiving as stress free and relaxing as possible so the chargers really "joodge" up the clear plates. I have a mix of silver and gold chargers and I'm on the thrifting hunt for some more --I definitely didn't have 31 in my collection! Will keep you posted!
I'm always on the look out for clear, silver and white candlesticks in different heights. They seem to work well together and by using white candles, I can tie them all together. I probably wouldn't buy turkey salt & pepper shakers at full price, but when I found them at a thrift store, I scooped them right up. They are more decorative than functional. So that's where I am right now with our table settings for Thanksgiving. I still need to wash and iron the cloths but I'll do that right before I put them on the tables and in keeping it real around here.....
....the other end of the table. You're welcome!
