Put together our Thanksgiving Table using what I have, spending no $$!
I came close, I spent $1!
A little unconventional, but here's what I used ~
Flagstone pieces leftover from our patio became chargers,
thicker slabs are the perfect rustic texture I like to pair with silver pitchers and trays.
Dried hydrangeas from our yard took the place of fresh florals.
Spice jars filled with additional hydrangeas give each place setting added interest.
Candles are included in the centerpiece and rows of votives line each end of the table.
Napkins I made a few years ago coordinate with the neutral palette, and
the simple glass salad plates allow the pattern to show through.
A collection of mis-matched wine glasses complete the look.
Once I got the place setting arranged I moved on to the centerpiece, making sure
the height of my pitchers were varied by using thicker slabs of stone.
It looks a little empty in the space to the left and right of the centerpiece...hmm.
A row of six votives on each side, looking better.
(If you don't have any of these you should get some...today!)
Still tweaking...some silverware was still in the dishwasher.
Checking the look of the rows of votives - yep, just what it needed to fill in the empty space.
The buffet, set with plates and cups, in anticipation of
the desserts we'll be indulging in!
If you missed it here is the Do-Ahead Thanksgiving Menu I shared.
Btw if you're wondering what I spent $1 on ~ it was two small glass vases,
the cute ones that don't look like spice jars.
