Inexpensive Thanksgiving Table Setting Ideas


Thanksgiving will be here before you know it … how are you setting your table? I’m usually so focused on the guestlist, cleaning the house, shopping and the menu that our Thanksgiving table setting and decor are usually taken into consideration with just a few days to go.

This year, I planned out my Thanksgiving table early. I wish I could just go live inside everything on the Crate and Barrel or Pottery Barn Thanksgiving webpages. But, at heart – I’m just too frugal! Instead, I’ll head over to eFavorMart – one of my favorite places to buy inexpensive Table Linens.

eFavorMart is known for inexpensive wedding supplies, but just by changing the color palette, you can pick up cheap table linens and decorations for Thanksgiving!

(and make sure to check for a coupon code – they usually have it in the bottom right corner of their page. Right now, through Nov 12th, the entire site is 40% off + take an additional 10% off with code RDY15


At eFavorMart, you can choose from tons of other inexpensive tablecloths, napkins, table runners, chair sashes & covers and more in various styles, colors and sizes.

The prices are amazing – much cheaper than you would find at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond or Macy’s. And they ship from California, so you usually receive your order in just a few days.

I’m in love the eggplant purple place setting I found at Living With Libby’s blog. Together, our square white dinnerware from Pier1 and eggplant linens should create a nice crisp holiday palette.

Cheap Tablecloth thanksgiving

This Eggplant 90 x 156 Tablecloth is only $13.50.  (There are tons of other inexpensive tablecloths in various styles, colors and sizes available.)

2 of these ivory pintuck table runners at $3.34 each and 4 sets of 5 – 17 x 17 Napkins in Eggplant for $2.29 per set, should complete my linen needs and all for about $34.00!

Now, I’m trying to figure out a way to get the look of these square black chargers for less. I’m thinking that since my plates are square, I could use 12 x 12 cardstock? Maybe 12 x 12 slate tiles from Home Depot? Fabric? (although my sewing skills leave a lot to be desired!)

ceramic turkey

As for the centerpiece, I plan on using a ceramic turkey tureen like these that I picked on a Target Clearance Sale a few years ago. (mine is a solid harvest/mustard yellow color) I can place it on a lazy susan hidden with garland from Michaels and use it as a bread basket!


See's Chocolate Turkeys


These milk chocolate turkeys from See’s Candy are adorable, and might be fun at a kids table (although I don’t think the adults would mind too much if they found a See’s Chocolate Turkey at their place setting!)

On either side of the centerpiece, I’ll do a cranberry candle like this one I found on pinterest.
