It's that time of year where we overspend right? Welp, this year is a little bit different because of you know what. Not only are a lot of us operating on an extremely low budget, we are also staying at home for the holidays. It's been a challenging year on so many levels, but I read an article about how there has been a surge in home projects because we desperately need to feel safe and secure in our homes. 

Sooo....this was our first Thanksgiving spent at home, just the 3 of us, since moving to L.A. 10 years ago and I wanted it to feel special. This is how I did it.

Table Runner: $1.00 Kraft paper roll from the Dollar Tree 
Greenery: $2.99 Eucalyptus from Trader Joes
Gourds: $2.50 from Trader Joes (left over from Halloween)
Pine combs: Free from the tree
Candles: $23.99 Vinkor Flameless Candles Battery Operated Candles 4" 5" 6" 7" 8" 9" Set of 9 Ivory Real Wax Pillar LED Candles with 10-Key Remote and Cycling 24 Hours Timer from Amazon (last year)

Invitations: Designed on Canva for free using the "Monochrome Flower Photo Menu" template. I found a gingham photo on Pinterest and uploaded it as a background on the template and then made the text adjustments.  I printed on plain photocopy paper and mounted on Paper Source $2.75 for 25 A7 Black Flat Cards. Tied with twine also from Paper Source (1 ball of twine has lasted 2 years!) There's a sale version here.

Have fun and thanks for reading!
