Easy Thanksgiving Table Decor Ideas


Thanksgiving is celebrated to express gratitude for the harvest, the family or to a higher power.

It’s a holiday cherishing being with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together.

Here are a few easy, budget friendly, DIY Table Decor ideas to make your feast stand out.

Most of the products used in these ideas are sourced from within my home. Only additional items are fresh fruits.

As, all these pictures have been clicked by me at my Home, do mention the source if you intend to use them.

My main focus is to liven up your table and create a chic setting without spending much. As many of us are feeling the pinch of high prices, hyperinflation and cost of living crisis, these simple tips will not cost much. Point is to use whatever is available in your home and display them.

The common thread in the displays is:

Use of Table Runner

Use of Place Mats

Fresh Fruits

Vintage, inherited cutlery/flatware

Cloth napkins
