Holiday Table Setting On A Budget

I love hosting for the holidays, but I don’t always love the hefty price that comes along with it. Throughout the years, I have devised a tried and true method of creating a warm and inviting tablescape for under $10!!!

What I used:

-Chinette Plates because I hate having a mountain of dishes after hosting, and Chinette plates are the next best thing to a real one. Plus, it’s easy to clean up!

-Greenery is FREE and festive! Use what you have; I have used pine, juniper, and rosemary, and we have a holly bush this year!

-Fresh cranberries, an inexpensive pop of color

-Festive napkins… I found these for under $2 and used them as placemats.

-Candles ( hello, cozy ambiance) and tchotchkes I have around the house and Violia! An easy and inexpensive tablescape perfect for hosting during the holidays.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match what you have and make it your own! Go easy on yourself because, at the end of the day, what matters at the end of the day is those around your table 🙂

Happy Hosting this Holiday Season!
