Wow, it’s November already! Thanksgiving is right around the corner. This year, for the first time in about 15 years, we will be spending Thanksgiving at our family cabin. My entire family will be up there. So, it will be just a big fun family holiday. We are really looking forward to it!
So, I won’t be doing a full blown thanksgiving tablescape this year. That should make the princess happy because last Thanksgiving she spent about 30 minutes sitting at the table saying, “Mama, can we eat yet??!! No more pictures Mama!!”
Originally I planned on setting a thrifty Thanksgiving tablescape for the November TT party. Instead, I am sharing a bunch of new to me thrift finds!
I have been very good regarding thrifting lately. I have mainly been searching for certain things to make into resale items or for our business. So, I haven’t bought a lot of thrifts for myself. However, about 90% of this table is made up of thrift treasures that I have found throughout last month and have been saving to share at this party!
Okay, let’s get this party started!
I started with this olive green fringed tablecloth. This was a freebie. A few year ago I was shopping at one of my favorite antique stores and found lots of beautiful thrifty dishes. The owner of the business was wrapping all my purchases and ran out of paper. So she grabbed these “Old tablecloths that I didn’t know what to do with” (her words) and wrapped my dishes in. I got this vintage one and a gold fringed one as well.
Today I am setting the table for the three of us so, I used 3 of my natural bamboo .59 cents placemats. Full retail price…whoa Diann! You know you will see these same placemats at SA in the future and priced at $1.99 each!
I found these dishes at Value World and just fell in love with them! They are a white ironstone with a dark green pattern.
Hum. Looking at the tablecloth, placemats and dishes, the whole look is all wrong. This is the part we as blogging tablescapers don’t usually show but, I need to find different linens because this is so not working for me. Tell me this has never happened to you? You have the look in your head and then when things start to be put together, it is totally not what you thought it would be!
Okay, I will be right back…….lalala…….
I decided to go with using plain chocolate brown napkins for placemats. I couldn’t pass up the price of .25 cents each. I got these at the grocery store.
I told you all about stopping at an estate sale a few weeks ago. I bought these two different sets of glasses there. Each glass was .10 cent.
I love, love, love using copper during the Autumn months! It is just perfect if you ask me. I have slowly been accumulating some fun copper pieces while thrifting. I found this set at SA. It is made my Coppercraft Guild which was a "pre-Tupperware" home party company that sold decorative copper home decor items. It has 9 pieces in the set (I didn’t use the gravy boat). It was marked $6.99 and then it was 50% off that price. I really like this set a lot!
