Thanksgiving is a mere week and a half away so it’s officially time to kick your preparations into high gear. If you’re hosting this year, chances are you’ve already begun to brainstorm your menu, but don’t forget to allow plenty of time to plan your tabletop decor. I tend to gravitate towards minimalist, neutral styles so as not to distract from the food, or make the table too crowded.
The key to entertaining on a modest budget is investing in quality basics up front, like a full set of white dishes and the perfect wine glasses. Beyond the basics, I look to some of my favorite home stores (like Cost Plus World Market, as I’ve mentioned before) to fill in the details that make a particular tablescape come to life. In this case, I purchased these rattan chargers, these Thanksgiving-specific napkins, and this eucalyptus garland . By selecting a few items each season, holiday, or occasion, you can slowly build a collection of unique entertaining decor without breaking the bank.
p.s. how cute are these little to-go cups? Perfect for sending home Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving leftovers with your guests!
