Do you want an elegant dollar store thanksgiving decorations/tablescape that is both inexpensive and pretty? You’ve come to the right place! This table decor (chargers, plates, glasses, and accent)s are all from either Dollar Tree or the Target Dollar Spot.
Inexpensive Easy Dollar Store Thanksgiving Decorations — Where items are from:

How to create a beautiful and inexpensive dollar store Thanksgiving Decorations
STEP 1: Start with some gold chargers.
These gold charger plates are from The Dollar Tree. They make a big impression for very little money, plus the gold color brings a nice fall vibe.
STEP 2: Add some plates. Use your own or buy from The Dollar Tree.
Any plate will do. They will be set off by the gold charger.
STEP 3: Tie a napkin with string, add a sprig of greenery to bring a little nature.
You can buy these sprigs for cheap (these were 3 for $1 from the Target Dollar Spot) or you can actually pull some greenery from a nearby tree.
Step 4: Fancy your tablescape up with both a champagne flute and wine glass — both from Dollar Tree.
Even if you don’t drink alcohol, these are great for water and Martinelli’s and will help your pretty Thanksgiving tablescape sparkle.
STEP 5 (Optional): Add name cards
If you’re feeling extra fancy, you can print or handwrite name cards for your family or friends. I wrote my Thanksgiving ones on plain cardstock, but I’ve also found cheap frames from the dollar store.
Fancy and Inexpensive Easy Dollar Store Thanksgiving Decorations or other Dinner Party Tablescapes
Truth be told, I am not a very fancy person, but there is this little part of me that was craving a pretty tablescape. I actually created a little Gourmet Club with friends in an effort to have an excuse to create a pretty Tablescape. The first time I created a fancy tablescape was for hosting that Gourmet Club. I went all out, creating a 20s Flapper Theme. I handmade flapper headdresses that were part of the place settings. It makes me smile just looking at these photos — pre-pandemic when we didn’t think twice about having a dinner party with friends. But that’s another post for another day.
