3 simple, budget-friendly ways to dress up Thanksgiving table

Every Thanksgiving table demands a centerpiece, and while the turkey gets plenty of attention, we want a look that is warm and welcoming long after the dishes have been cleared.

Here are three centerpiece ideas under $20 that featured thrifted décor and start with a neutral table runner As you gather together with grateful hearts, you can raise a glass and toast the extra savings in your pocket.

Tray with décor

Wood trays are all the rage. Rather than using it as a serving tray or as a charcuterie board, make it the container for your decorations for a more laidback look. Top your tray with a folded cloth napkin or towel that features the colors you want to spotlight. In this case, we chose an orange, brown and white plaid pattern for a casual theme. With the addition of a grapevine wreath, decorated mason jar with faux florals, a candle to add height and a small pumpkin that complements the colors, you’re all set. Balance it out with a glass pumpkin candleholder on each side.

Harvest time

This Thanksgiving centerpiece is designed around similar color tones. In this case, we went with gold and started with a gorgeous taper candleholder that not only will add a touch of light to the meal but also adds a harvest feel. When thinking in terms of table centerpieces and layout, go with an odd number. With that in mind, we topped it off with two sizeable pumpkins to create a true focal point.

Fall basket

Thrift stores have baskets in all shapes and sizes. Baskets make easy centerpieces because you can fill them with a variety of items, including real mini pumpkins and gourds. In our look, we took a fabric, fall-themed basket and filled it with floral stems from Goodwill and placed two decorated pumpkins on either side and a small pumpkin on the plate to carry the theme throughout the table.

Whether you love thrifting for the thrill of the hunt, to feel good about helping others or to help keep items out of the landfills, you’ll find 1,000s of new items daily.
