I decorated my table with a Fall country theme. It was very simple and affordable. I found many of my items at the dollar store! I used Mason Jars for my glasses this year. This really adds to the country charm. I used a plain white table cloth and a burlap runner. I found some matching brown placemats at the dollar store that worked perfectly. I used my own white plates and spiced it up with some fall green bowls I found to really make the table pop. I found some matching green paper napkins. I try to keep it simple when I can. I created these classic centerpieces by using a glass vase and filling it with popcorn. I added one of these flameless votives for light and tied a piece of raffia around it. They turned out beautifully. Finally I added some color to the table with this wire basket lined with a cloth napkin. It is going to serve double duty. Before dinner it holds these fake sunflowers as a centerpiece. During dinner the basket can hold rolls or even extra silverware. I also added some fake fall leaves. All of these items were picked up at that dollar store for only a couple dollars. You don’t have to spend a lot to have your table looking festive. I hope these tips and this Apple & Sweet Potato Mash Topper Recipe helps you have a spectacular Thanksgiving!
