Updated: Nov 13, 2020

Saving money is more important than ever, especially during these crazy times. Celebrating the positive and expressing gratitude for all we have will be more important than ever before. You don't have to spend a ton of money decorating a beautiful Thanksgiving table. Here are 10 ways to create a gorgeous Thanksgiving table on a budget.

1. Get Inspired By Nature

This is my favorite way to decorate for Thanksgiving. Take a nature walk with your family and gather FREE decorations that will make your thanksgiving table really pop! Pinecones, leaves, acorns and so much more. Just be sure to identify the item your are using and confirm it is safe to be on your table. Poison Ivy leaves can be a pretty bright orange/reddish color this time of year, but.... you might not want it on your table. Just saying 😵🥴

2. Recycle & Reuse

Look through your old ribbon and fabric scraps and create gorgeous utensil wraps and place decorations. Use beautiful autumn leaves to brighten under the plates. Don't worry they don't have to match. Just choose complimenting colors.

3. Simple is Beautiful

Let your amazing colorful Thanksgiving food decorate your table. Keep the place settings simple and clean & choose a solid colored table runner. Your table will pop with color and be just as beautiful as it is delicious!

4. Get Crafty

Make fun paper crafts with the kids during the weeks before Thanksgiving. Teach the kids about Thanksgiving by making fun paper crafts. Keep the creations to decorate the Thanksgiving Table!
