Our family has never been the type to do a formal sit down Thanksgiving dinner. We were always the buffet, paper plate, sit where you can kind of people. Mostly because when we would all get together with extended family during the holidays there were a lot of us, like sometimes around 30 of us and well the space just wasn’t there for that kind of formal seating. 

But this year I wanted to try my hand at doing a more formal Thanksgiving table decor that was budget friendly but fun and inviting at the same time. Most of these items I scoured from other places in our house. Some items were found on clearance and some from our backyard and garden!

Individual Table Setting

For each place setting I didn’t have to go far to find something to use make each guest feel special. The yard! And the leaves we haven’t picked up yet! Ha!

All you need to do is find a clean leaf of any kind and use some ChalkArt and Alphabet #3 from A Maker’s Studio and create an initialized leaf to personalize each place setting.

I love that this all came together with minimal cost and using the natural resources around me to create an elegant and simple table that would be great for any Thanksgiving feast. 

Side note: I realize my place settings are incorrect with the silverware but lets all look beyond that!
