I suppose Halloween doesn’t really mark the beginning of the holidays, but you couldn’t tell my four year old that. Chloe thinks Halloween is the next best thing to Christmas or as the famous saying goes: the next best thing since sliced bread.
So, in honor of Chloe and one of her favorite occasions, it’s tablescape day! Chloe absolutely loves the decorations on our dining room table because she can play with almost everything and it doesn’t matter. If she wants to rearrange it, that’s fine. In fact, you can tell where one of the pumpkins is hanging off to the side all by itself. That was Chloe’s touch. And the super fabulous thing is the majority of the things on the table are kid friendly, and half of them only cost a dollar.
Now, I’m no decorator, but I was pretty pleased with myself and with the finished product. I copied all those expensive looks from Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel, but bought all of my decorations from discount stores like the Dollar Tree and Marshalls. Yep, you read that right, the Dollar Tree. Granted several items also came from Hobby Lobby, on sale of course!
And the best thing about all of it is, if some of it doesn’t last until Thanksgiving, then no big deal! It was all super cheap, and with a few minor adjustments, this table goes from Halloween to Thanksgiving in no time! I would love to see pictures or hear ideas about your tablescapes!
