Tablescape Thursday

A Fall Tablescape by a College Student with a BudgetHosted by Between Naps on the Porch

all, and welcome to by blog tablescappers... This is my second Tablescape Thursday!
I am a college student who has a small budget and the decorating items my mother has gifted me.

Today I did my fall tablescape:

My centerpiece is a vase from Southern Living at Home.
The plates are from the Micheal's dollar section (I think 4 for a dollar)
All the decor is from Micheals!

Fruit is from Walmart that mom bought last year with $.99 leaves and a dollar scarecrow.

This is a cute and simple way that even cheap college students can embrace decorating and the holidays!



  1. I just love that college students can appreciate a well set table!! You did a great job on this one.
    ♥, Susan

  2. It's all how you put it together! And you've done a great job! I might steal your idea for a centerpiece...

  3. Dear Mallory Ann, Many Autumn Blessings to you!
    It's neat that you are sharing on Tablescape Thursday.

    The decorating items that can be found at Dollar Stores is amazing and alot of fun to decorate with with.

    I'm so proud of some little white ceramic pumpkins I bought at Walgreens that I went back and got some more. Only 99 cents a pumpkin.

    Take care and hope you'll drop by for some hot chocolate,
