It’s the Monday before the big day. The turkey is brined. The pie crusts are perfectly crimped. You’ve got your secret weapon—mom’s homemade stuffing—at the ready. Yet, when you look around, it’s clear that something is missing.
When hosting Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving), it’s easy to lose yourself in the food prep and forget about dressing the table. Festive décor sets the mood and makes the meal that much more memorable. But don’t think that means you have to break out the fine china or spend a fortune on florals. These affordable tablescape accessories (all $30 or less!) make it easy to pull together polished place settings that are perfect for the season.
