Can you believe it is November already?? We have had snow on the ground since October so we are in FULL holiday mode over here and I can’t say I am mad about it. Last week I did a poll on IG asking if anyone would like to see a Thanksgiving inspired tablescape sans the fine china. Overwhelmingly the response was YES, so here it is :). I had this idea…what if I created an easy thanksgiving tables cape that anyone could put together in a matter of minutes AND it didn’t require any fine china. Because here’s the thing, I don’t know about you but I love to host parties, but I have about zero pieces of fine china. The solution-disposable products! (Bonus- it makes clean up a breeze! I do want to add that these are really good quality & you could also wash & save to re-use if you wanted to.) Back to my goal (can you tell this kind of stuff makes me happy?? 😉 I wanted to create a formal look, but ya know, without the formal wear ;). This look I promise anyone can achieve, so whether you are a first year hostess & totally new to hosting, having a Friendsgiving, or just want to show your family a bit of your creative side, I’ve got you covered.
Depending on how many people you are hosting, you may not need to buy in bulk (how most disposable products are sold), so I did find a similar set of everything for a party of 20 for under $17. This might be a good option if you aren’t looking to have a ton of left over products. They do work well for keeping on hand for quick use at home, or if you need throw a last minute dinner party together. They would also work great for Christmas coming up if you are going to be doing any hosting or are awesome for bigger parties, bridal & wedding showers ect. I have an entire cabinet of “party wear” that I keep ready to go for parties throughout the year. Each product I have linked I have bought, tried & tested and have been really happy with the quality.
Everything I used is prime, so you have plenty of time to prepare (I mean order with one click ;). The only exception are the linens (which are not disposable however I did link a few disposable options.) Mine are from Hobby Lobby, if you happen to have one near you, I would recommend just snagging them from there – they sell them individually & holiday is always 50% off -bless them! I think mine were under $1 a piece after the sale.
As far as the centerpiece, my best advice is to be resourceful! The runner is burlap from past years trees & all the pumpkins are just decor that I had up from fall. I just went around my house and grabbed all my fall pumpkins & started placing them on the runner. Use what you have & allow yourself to have a little fun. If you need a few fillers, Hobby Lobby (or any craft store) sells boxes of small fall pumpkins & decor really inexpensive. I got one box for the plater toppers for $6. I am all about stretching my budget & this is a great way to save. If you happen to have any small lanterns from decor around your house grab those & add them in. I would have except all of mine are still in storage from the move so instead I did candle sticks. I will link a few different options for these. They aren’t a necessity but I do think they add good dimension to the table with the height.
If you have any questions just leave them below. I will link everything here, also I was having fun doing it so decided to two different looks to hopefully inspire your creativity. Look 1 is a way to style if you are using two plates & look 2 is a good way to style if you’re only looking to use one plate. Happy Decorating!
