Last week I showed you dolls an inexpensive Thanksgiving table for under $50 and today I want to show you how you can bump up the glamour with just a little bit more money. Using some of the same basic elements of the first table, namely the runner, the candles, and the napkin rings, and adding a few more items you can create a lovely and colorful Thanksgiving table.
Add Flowers for color.
The major change with this tablescape is the addition of flowers. I have found even when buying flowers at the grocery store, they can still be a pricey thing to add to your table. I discovered these beautiful autumnal shaded mums at my local Trader Joes and knew they would add gorgeous color to my table.
Mason Jars are awesome for a budget Thanksgiving table
I am a big fan of using Mason jars as vases because they are easy to find at any grocery store or Target, and they can be used over and over again. To change things up a bit I covered the larger jars with some of the same brown paper I used for the runner and then tied it with the two aubergine colored twines to add even more color to the table.

The bottles with the candles are the same ones I used in the $50 table but this time I only used the shorter bottles. I also scattered the little white pumpkins along the table as well.
Here is the cost breakdown of this Thanksgiving table:
- Brown paper: $5.00
- Twine: $9.00
- Mason Jars: $28.00
- Flowers: $35
- Bottles $3.00
- Candles $5.00
- Tags: $6.00
- Sharpie: $2.00
So the total comes to around $93.00. Not bad!
Later in the week I will be showing you my final Thanksgiving table idea and that one is quite glamorous with the main colors being gold and purple. I can’t wait to show it to you! If you want a sneak peek you can kind of see it on my Instagram HERE, and while you are at it, why don’t you follow me? You can see the behind the scenes of The Glamorous Housewife in action.
