Thrifty Autumn Table

Hi everyone!

It's been a couple of weeks since I did a tablscape. So, I thought it was time to do one. And of course, I am doing it uber thrifty. LOL

Let's just jump right in!

I started my setting with this pretty paper placemat. Yup, my mom visited her friend and they went shopping at that super cheap party products store and she bought me a bunch of goodies again! Thanks Mom! There are 25 placemats in this pack and she paid .69 cents for them.

I then added these small grapevine wreaths. I have had these for several years and have used them for tablescapes in the past.

Then a couple of pumpkin canape plates that Troy got me last month (.30 cents each).

And the fun turkey paper napkin (,25 cents a pack...thanks again mom!)

One of my latest finds was a set of two of these cut glass bowls. The base is copper. So pretty! I got the two of them for .50 cents.

The glasses were thrifted from the past. My best guess at the total cost, from the placemat to the glasses for each setting, is $1.85.

The centerpiece is made up of mostly thrifted items I have had for awhile. I mixed ceramic pumpkins, wood fruit, wax fruit and real gourds along with odds and ends.

Nothing is more perfect for Autumn than copper. I used my thrifted copper pitcher and added some of my 90% off flowers I got from Michaels awhile back.

Some overall pictures.

Some candle light pictures.

I hope you enjoyed a super thrifty tablescape! Have a wonderful day!
