I love a well-decorated table. But let’s be honest. I don’t live in a Pottery Barn catalog. To me, a “charger” is something that keeps my iPhone from dying, not something to put my plates on. And it takes every molecule of my focus to pull off a Thanksgiving spread that’s not too hot (burned) or too cold (going to give someone E Coli). With those standards in mind, I set about collecting super simple Thanksgiving decor ideas for this year’s table inspiration.
Here are five ways you can use stuff you already have around to dress-up your Thanksgiving tablescape. This approach will also save you a few bucks to put towards going out to breakfast the day after. (That’s always our plan at least!)
