Finally! It was time to break out the wedding china. My husband, Pj and I hosted Thanksgiving for the first time. I was thrilled to have my family and Pj’s family over for a huge feast. Plus, hosting Thanksgiving meant that I got to decorate!
I didn’t hold back. Many trips to Micheals, JoAnne Fabrics and orders from Oriental Trading resulted in the gold, burlap, deep purple and sage green theme for Turkey Day tablescape. Here’s how I pulled it all together…on a budget:
When you walk into my house, the first thing you see is the mantle. I wanted to make it POP! I was lucky to score this magnolia leaf garland at HomeGoods for $30! The magnolia leafs were painted gold which really set the gold theme for my decor.
Whenever I purchase a garland or wreath, I always add to it. This time, I purchased the floral dried lotus pods and feast feathers from Orinetal Trading to add. Both were on sale!
Simple candles can be dressed up with a ribbon or in this case a piece of burlap and a feasent feather decal – both from JoAnne Fabrics.

Since our Thanksgiving table was so long (14 people long!), I wanted multiple, low centerpieces vs one huge centerpiece. I needed four centerpieces total and let’s remember, I’m working on budet here
