Thrifted Treasures: Holiday Table on a Budget

We had such a fun, long Thanksgiving weekend! You can read more about it in my post here.

On Sunday we hosted Thanksgiving #2 at our house with my family and I wanted to share a few details on how I set up a pretty holiday table using mainly thrifted items.

Here are a couple photos of our Thanksgiving table setup and 70% of it is thrifted!

While a lot of people went to the mall or department stores on Black Friday, you can probably guess what I did!? I went thrifting with my sister!

I found these beautiful blue and white plates (set of 10) with salad plates for $10.00. I already had the white plates so I thought it would be fun to alternate by mixing and matching!

I also found the stemware glasses with gold trim, mix and match set of 16, for $8.00. They are crystal and so so beautiful!

The garland that I used as a long centerpiece is 6ft long and was only $10.00 at the tree farm where we cut our tree on Saturday.

All of the candle holders are brass and were thrifted or estate sale finds from $1.00 – $3.99 each.

My bar cart along with everything on it were thrifted. The cart was a Craigslist find for $80.00 and the glasses and decanter were $5.00 for all of them!

I added some fresh rosemary to each plate to give a nice fragrance and make it a little more festive.

Thrifting is such a great way to collect pretty hosting items such as plates, cups, glass stemware and utensils. You can setup a gorgeous tablescape that is not only unique, but budget friendly.

Whenever I thrift shop I like to collect good quality pieces and store them at home either as decor or in my cupboards to have handy for events at my home.

I have a beautiful collection of teapots, teacups, glassware, plates, serving platters, cake stands and so much more – majority of which are thrifted!

Mixing and matching add a fun and eclectic element to your table, the possibilities are endless when you start collecting items!

Hosting beautiful parties doesn’t have to be expensive, they can be thrifted and beautiful!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

PS: These pictures were taken super early in the morning before the kids woke up so the lighting isn’t great!
