So I went to the Dollar Store the other day - by the way - run, do not walk to your nearest Dollar Store right now! The one here at least, was FILLED with gorgeous white plates, bowls, mugs, with a raised dotted pattern around the edges - they were lovely. And beautiful silver trays that I could picture lining the dining room table with candles and greens on them...if I were hosting a holiday dinner party, I would have seriously stocked UP. I promise you, you could spend probably $20 and have the most elegant, gorgeous table for the holidays with the stuff I saw there. In hindsight, I should have grabbed everything, but something else caught my eye and got sidetracked. Plus, we know how much you can really *shop* with little ones around, so I was kinda in and out;) I saw these glasses...
You know I'm always on the hunt for something low for our mantel, since our tv is mounted above it, leaving me a few inches to play with. So I thought, maybe I could use my stencils (yes, AGAIN!), and write out the word t-h-a-n-k-s, and fill them with votives and itty bitty fillers, like tiny acorns/pinecones/cinnamon stick pieces, etc. I put the kids down for naps the other day and got to workin'.
Ah, Thanksgiving. So nice to give thanks, reflect on all our blessings...like our family, our health, our home, and of course, our Dollar Store...;)
Stay tuned for more Thanksgiving Decor this week!
