A Simply Thankful Tablescape

If you like simple, quick-and-easy table ideas for Thanksgiving–or Autumn–perhaps this tablescape will give you a few.


The pumpkins and “hammered glass” goblets came from Dollar Tree a few years ago.

The placemats were Nice Saves from Goodwill.

The linen napkins were at Tuesday Morning–on clearance.

The candlesticks were an auction box find.

The solid wood napkin rings were 50 cents each at an outlet mall many years ago.

The acorn salad plates (my favorite Fall dishes!) were a fantastic surprise at T.J. Maxx a few years back… They’re Spode and were ridiculously inexpensive.

Tablescapes don’t have to be expensive! This one certainly isn’t.


Just be sure to include some of my favorite Autumn decorating elements

and you’ll have a warm and inviting table for two… or twenty.

In case you end up busy traveling–or cooking–over the next few days and don’t get by for another visit before Thanksgiving, let me leave you with this little bit of encouragement…

  6. The use of all the thrifty and wonderful items gives you a great tablescape. Your Spode plate is perfect for a fall or Thanksgiving table. Love the saying about blessings! Have a lovely week!


  7. Beautiful as always Susan! I love the napking rings and the brown candlesticks. I couldn’t agree with you more about it doesn’t have to be expensive. I really enjoy using what I have around the house and what I come across bargain shopping. I have learned that well from the best, thanks so much. Thank you also for your sweet comment. It’s so nice to have been missed! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
