Thanksgiving DIY Decor


This year I was incharge of decor and table for our thanksgiving dinner.I loved being assigned this duty because I love to decorate. Dollar tree was my very best friend during the making of this decor. The white table cloth is a very long white backdrop I use for my photography business. The kraft paper was bought at Dollar Tree. I had a bunch of mason jars sitting under my sink so Richard spray painted those with gold spray paint. The flowers on the table are fakies from dollar tree. The little red ball plant is from a tree near my sisters house. The dinner plates are from my home, (world market). The cloth napkins are from Ikea. The plastic fruit was purchased at dollar tree and also spray painted by Richard. The paper lanterns were purchased from Daiso and were spray painted by Richard. Everything else you see was taken from my home!
