Thanksgiving Table Setting (on the cheap!) + Meal Planning

I love a beautiful Thanksgiving table setting, but what I love most is that you can create a wonderfully festive table without breaking the bank.

Creating a Beautiful Thanksgiving Table Setting (on the cheap) 

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is that it falls right after Halloween which means: HALLOWEEN CLEARANCE SALES! 

You should be able to find all kinds of pumpkins (both real and faux) at huge discounts. It’s also the perfect time of year to find clearance sales at garden centers so when you combine the two, you can come up with some pretty fun table decor options for your Thanksgiving table setting.

I love the idea of filling a pumpkin with succulents (again, you can use either real of faux of either). Fill in surrounding spaces with eucalyptus garland or leaves for added color and fragrance and you might even consider adding in small pumpkins and gourds. 

I love vintage looking apple crates or apple bushel baskets and you can fill those with seasonal flowers that can be repurposed after your meal. 

If you are looking for a more elegant table setting, that can also be done without breaking the bank. Check out this set of 8 Gold Chargers. Such a fun way to add a pop of color at a super affordable price.

It’s a great way to dress up simple white dinnerware. Add in some gold utensil accents and maybe some gold rimmed glassware for that extra elegant look.

There are so many options for gold napkins (both paper and cloth) and that’s a great way to easily add that fancy feel to your table setting. 

The very best part is that all of these looks can be done together to make your table feel comfy and cozy and elegant at the same time. 

Now that you’ve got your festive and beautiful Thanksgiving table setting planned, let’s move on to the meal planning! I’ve got some great ideas for you on keeping that simple, delicious and stress free as well!

I love love LOVE the holidays, but could completely do without the stress. I know I’m not alone, right? 

The very best thing about the holidays is our time together with family and friends. Period. So, if you are looking to make your holidays truly memorable then it’d definitely worth looking into cutting out the things that either stress you out or take away from that time with the ones you love. 

I’ve got a few tips for you on ways to perfect your Thanksgiving table setting and meal without losing your mind or spending a lot of money. 

Putting Together the Perfect Thanksgiving Menu to go with Your Beautiful Thanksgiving Table Setting

Thanksgiving just isn’t about the food, it’s also about the company. The family and friends who gather to celebrate this feast. Sadly, the stress over creating the meal, decorating the table and organizing the event takes all of the fun out of those little moments when we should be enjoying each other. However, there are a few simple ways that you can simplify things and still pull off the most fantastic event.

Omaha Steaks Ham


Did you know that you can order an entire Thanksgiving meal from Omaha Steaks? It’s true! I’ve experienced an Omaha Steaks Thanksgiving dinner myself and it was fantastic. In fact, I’ve also hosted an Omaha Steaks Easter dinner and it too, was one of the best we’ve had.

With Thanksgiving meals starting at only $59.99 (with FREE shipping!) these are pretty tough to beat AND I can tell you first hand, the food is delicious!

You’ll save yourself a lot of time and stress in the kitchen and the end result will be an amazing meal. 

So at the very least, consider ordering an Omaha Steaks turkey or ham, or both! I personally love that Thanksgiving table with both turkey and ham options and I love as many side dishes as the table can fit.
