Glam Thanksgiving Tablescape {Home Decor} + $50 TARGET Giveaway

I love decorating for fall but sometimes it just gets too orange-y. Of course, there is the rustic look which a lot of people adore and do great job with. My favorite though, is a fancy with a touch of rustic (the table runner). It's always nice to sit down to a perfectly decorated table while enjoying delicious food. So if traditional pumpkins and gourds is not for you, here's a look which empress all your guest (I think).
Here I used a touch of black with the cloth napkins (similar here) and used simple wine glasses. I added a lot of gold here with candle holders, while using simple traditional white plates.  If you notice, I tied a little bow around the silverware which adds a cute touch. I love the unusual cnalde holders, like these and tin plant pots that add a touch of life with greenery. It is extremely difficult to find white pumkins around Thanksgiving so stock up early and shop here for the cutest sugar bowl. And since I had burlap table runner (with white table cloth underneath), it was only sensible to add burlap pumpkins. Plus you can keep all the gold stuff around for Christmas decor. A win - win in my book! 
Thank you reading and have a great day!

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape {Home Decor}

Thanksgiving | Fall Tablescape | Rustic Simple Table | Happy Medley

I know that most of us don't have unlimited budgets when it comes to decor, so here is a look on a budget because who isn't trying to save a couple bucks. 

Every time I go on Pinterest to find holiday table inspiration, I love the pretty silverware and the gold accents. But, I cannot spend hundreds of dollars on just table decor, how about food? How about storing all that junk once the holiday is over? I don't have a basement and my garage is stuffed with junk already so really, it's not an option. 

This year, I wanted to create something pretty, simple and affordable, so I dug through my decor and bought some pumpkins at the farmers market. I wanted to create a Thanksgiving table look with everything that I already have. I mean, the pumpkins and gourds were 2/$1 and that's a great deal considering they are almost $5 each at the store. 

I totally forgot about these napkin rings that I scored on clearance at Bed, Bath and Beyond for dirt cheap, so they came in handy. Flowers I had from my birthday and napkins were laying around for few years unused. The vases I bought at the local Salvation army, filled them with red and white beans, and green and yellow peas (I think you can do red lentils for a pop of color, only I was all out at the time) then placed a candle on top.

And ta-da!!!
