Giving Thanks...on a Budget

Thanksgiving is around the Corner~~

I'm not sure about all of you but i am on a tight budget this Thanksgiving. We are possibly having Thanksgiving at my house instead of my sister's this year because she is having her second baby in November- yeah! can't wait! Now comes the problem- setting a table that is functional, cute and affordable. I was browsing through Etsy- as I do every day- and came across these adorable (mostly vintage) pieces that are so lovely and quite reasonable to add to our tables this year. This set of colorful platters is from Savanteer.etsy.com $22, and the silver wear is $10 from Susantique.etsy.com

then there is this gorgeous tablecloth at the amazing price of $18 from VeroVintage.etsy.com and these stunning teal plates from allthegoodthings.etsy.com
~don't forget the turkey candleabra from thebestthings.etsy.com

Yummy retro bun warmer from laurahardie.etsy.com
Brown and Teal platter from sosovintage.etsy.com

Lovely harvest mugs from rekindle.etsy.com, and whoooo wouldn't love this cute little owl shaker? Just $8.99 & I love the color.  ricracandbuttons.etsy.com

Last but absolutely not least, a vintage bakelite carving set from SagePatch.etsy.com also visit her blog at sagepatch.blogspot.com

and super sweet beeswax taper candles from beeswaxartifacts.etsy.com
