My Thanksgiving table is decorated and ready for guests! I’ve been loving white and gold lately, so I incorporated those colors in a shabby chic tablescape. Most of the decor came from Savers Thrift Stores, including my new (to me) white dinnerware set! The entire set – cups, saucers, dishes and even a creamer and sugar bowl. Score! I love thrifting and seeing things in a new light. Maybe I can spray paint it to make it look modern or maybe I can cut it up and turn it into something completely different. It’s fun finding hidden treasures tucked away on a shelf.
Walking down the linens aisle, I found the most perfect matching lace tablecloths. They reminded me of my great grandmother. Her house was practically draped in lace with porcelain knick knacks sitting on top. I had to have them and modern them up a bit…minus the porcelain cats. I also picked up an assortment of clear vases for my Thanksgiving Centerpiece. Wondering what I did with those lace tablecloths? I took the scissors to one of them, GASP! But don’t worry, I kept the other one pristine and decided to use it as my tablecloth – with a burlap runner on top to bring out the chic in my shabby.
The tablecloth that I cut into transformed into shabby chic garland that I placed on my buffet and in my vintage window frame (also thrifted). Simply cut strips of lace and tie it on a piece of string or jute. I added in some strips of burlap to my shabby chic garland and love how it turned out! You can also hang it above your front door for a pretty little touch. I love using fabric garland as a photo prop behind people. So simple to make and oh so cute!
When thrift shopping, be on the lookout for candlesticks and plates. With a little spray paint and superglue, you can turn them into fabulous party platters. I adore my tiered platters and can’t wait to fill them with pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving! I love that I can change up my holiday decor without breaking the bank. Just wait until you see what I found at Savers Thrift Stores for my Christmas decor!
