Tips For Decorating Your Thanksgiving Table On A Budget

The table is the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving holiday, and making yours festive doesn't have to take a lot of time or money.

The design team from Wow I Love It, Shari and Sharon, say the secret is using things you have.

They picked a silver tea set, but look for any type of vases or bowls in your cabinets.

Then mix in nature. Leaves can be placed on the table and even underneath glass plates - for fall dishes. Acorns and pine cones are placed in the bowls.

And in keeping with the spirit of the holiday, make the table personal by adding pictures of loved ones.

"It's just a great way to have reminder on table of those people in our lives that we are thankful for," said Sharon.

Even the back of the chairs are decorated. It's a simple project. Pick up ribbon and wooden acorns at the craft store.

"The kids can help make this. All they want to do is just put glue on them, stick in bag with glitter," said Sharon.

Make sure to add candles. It's a good idea to pick out fall colors like orange and chocolate brown. If it's a bit loose, put masking tape around the bottom. It fits more securely into candle holder."

Now that the table is set and candles are lit, bring on the turkey.
