Decorating for Thanksgiving this year is proving to be a challenge. Luckily I started buying for it in September, but I have seen so many stories out their exclaiming just how hard it is to find decor right now.  You see the problem is that the closer to Thanksgiving we get here in the US, the closer to Christmas we get, and so the retailers move their fall inventory out to make way for all their holiday products.  I mean, it’s nice to get a head start on that, but what do you do if you didn’t prepare early for Thanksgiving?  Hopefully what I’m about to share will help you out!

Cloth Napkin Decoration-Feathers & Clothespins

A Crafty Moment: Feather Decorations for Cloth Napkins- Simply take a spray of feathers, disassemble, and apply to napkins using fun little clothespins! So easy, and not costly at all! At $1.99/Spray it should cost less than $10 for all your supplies.

You know all those pretty pumpkins you just couldn’t live without the moment they entered your nearest stores?  Well put those babies on your table!  This look is all the rage this year, so why not join in on the fun?

Pull out your pretty china, and set the table.  I have found that though I enjoy colorful tableware I get the most bang for my buck out of these simple white dishes. (Similar dishes can be found here.)  They are perfect for anytime of the year!

Add some pretty cloth napkins (similar) to the mix to add some color.

Pick up some fresh flowers from the grocery store.  No need to pay for a fancy arrangement when you can make your own!  Be as simple or extravagant with this as you want.  Here I chose a simpler softer look in the light yellow flowers filling a couple of lanterns (similar) I found in the Target Dollar Spot.

And since you will find them all over the place right now, take a few pinecones and spread them about the centerpiece.

 That’s really all there is to it!  Your family and friends will love this beautiful setup, and you will too because it didn’t take much effort or money to create (that’ll be out little secret)!

Enjoy!

    ooh! I love the coloring on those pumpkins. They work perfectly with your dishes and colors. I always enjoy seeing your signature look with a soft color palette and some natural elements in your decor.

      Thank you Steph! It’s because of the the fact that I forgot to add those feathers that it looks even half as good. I wasn’t satisfied with it at all the day before, so I’m thankful for that little mistake. LOL! 🙂

      Thank you Tiffany! It was a super simple idea that I came up with after forgetting to create anything for the post. It’s been so buys here with the ORC, and changing up decor for the holidays, and of course life, so I forgot. Thankfully once I realized my mistake the idea came to me, and I’m pretty happy with it. Who says crafting has to be a thousand steps right? LOL!

      Thank you April! Yep, white dishes are my jam. You can always add an accent salad plate to the mix if you need some color, but I found out quickly that trying to buy up as many dinner plates as needed for each season would have put me in a financial hole. I just got a new set of white dishes that I can’t wait to display for Christmas. I’ve been wanting some just like them for about a year, but until they went on sale last month really couldn’t afford them. Thankfully I saw the e-mail advertising the sale and checked!

      Thank you so much Sharon! You are right. I like the big details but often find that if I stray from the little ones it’s just incomplete.

      Thank you Bonbon! I added those on my second go round off photographing the tablescape. They really pulled it all together so I’m glad I saw them in the bag before I did. LOL! 🙂
