The placemats are pieces of cut kraft paper. I purchased several rolls of this paper at Dollar Tree last year, and am using it again this year! The silver chargers are also from Dollar Tree, but you can get these almost anywhere for cheap.
In the center of the table, I placed a piece of scrap wood from our recent hardwood install. It was already stained and was the perfect size, I just added some gold craft paint to the sides to glam it up a bit. I like how it adds a little height in the center of the table.
The gold candlesticks are from an antique store, and the striped candles are from Homegoods (from last year). I added some mercury glass candle holders (from Michael's) and a few pears to finish it off. The autumn bouquet is from Trader Joe's.
I used paper napkins, accordion folded them, and tied them up with twine. The place cards were an easy DIY watercolor project.
Super simple and natural, and I love the mix of silver and gold. There is still plenty of time to throw together a festive looking table! Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
