During the holidays, we like to have friends over for dinner, and we like our table to look nice. But we don't like to spend a lot of money, and we don't like to buy things that we'll never use again. So we were thrilled to find these 4 tabletop ideas from Real Simple.
Each idea costs less than $50 dollars, which is great. We'd never dream of spending more than that to decorate our table (we're spending the money on food and wine)!
But what we really love is that most of the ideas incorporate items you either A) already could have in your home, or B) could easily find in your yard. Almost all of the ideas incorporate reusable plates, utensils, and napkins. And although one or two recommend buying a few things we don't have on hand (a bunch of crayons, for instance) at least we'd use those things again.
There are a few suggestions we'd skip over, but all in all, we're thrilled to try a couple of these ideas out this holiday season.
