Dollar Tree Thanksgiving Tablescape. Create a beautiful and affordable fall Thanksgiving table using party supplies found at Dollar Tree.
It has been a while, but I am back with another Dollar Tree tablescape idea. You may remember last year I wanted to start creating a tablescape for each season that you could do at home for very little money. I shared a fun summer party idea that you can use for a summer dinner or party. Now, I am going to share beautiful Thanksgiving table decor that you can easily do yourself.

Dollar Tree Thanksgiving Tablescape
I purchased everything you see on the table from Dollar Tree. Each store is different and can have different items for sale, but hopefully, you will be able to take these ideas and make them work for you with what you find in your own store.
Thanksgiving Place Setting
I started by getting gold charger plates. These are great to have on hand anytime you are wanting to set a pretty table. I layered on a cute pumpkin Thankful paper plate on top. I used the matching napkins and clear silverware. You could easily add plain white plates and napkins for this table if you already have those on hand. The paper plates, napkins, and plastic utensils make for easy cleanup.
For the plastic wine glasses, I wanted to match them to my decor. I found fabric maple leaves and small glittered pumpkin picks that would be perfect. I cut the stem off the pumpkin and hot glued it to a leaf.
Then I glued the leaf to the stem of the glass. Each person got a different leaf which helps us to all tell our drinks apart at dinner. My kids think it is so fun to drink their sparkling cider out of wine glasses.
Usually, you can pop off the hot glue from the plastic if you wanted to wash and re-use the glasses.
Thanksgiving Tablescape Leaf decor
Since I didn’t do a napkin ring or name at each place setting, I wanted a little more decor for each plate. I used a burlap leaf, gold glitter leaf, and a flower to create a special item at each seat. You could easily add a name card to these if you wanted to use them as place settings.
I pulled apart the flowers and took off the plastic pieces from the leaves. I also cut off the clips on the back of the gold leaves.
Then, I hot glued each part together in the following order – flower, leaf, glittered leaf, burlap leaf.
To create the centerpiece for the table, I started with leaf garland. I used two strands. I added three amber-colored candle holders with LED tea lights. I found some beaded sparkly pumpkins that I added to each end of the table. Then, I found a green and orange leaf serving platter. These would be perfect for rolls or a small side dish like cranberry sauce.
This whole table took me less about 15 minutes to put together and that included decorating the wine glasses and the hot glued leaf decor.
Cost for Four Place Settings:
- Centerpiece items: $10
- 2 leaf garlands, 3 glass candle holders, 2 beaded pumpkins, 2 serving dishes, pack of LED candles
- Place settings: $9
- 4 gold chargers, paper plates, napkins, silverware, 2 sets of wine glasses
- Extra decor (optional):$6
- burlap leaves, 2 packages gold leaves, flower bouquet $4
- maples leaves, pumpkin picks (to decorate wine glasses) $2
TOTAL COST: $19 – $25
The great part about this table setting is you can repurpose the centerpiece items in your fall decor. I always have several packs of LED candles on hand, so that usually doesn’t cost me anything. And, you can re-use the gold chargers for other table decorations in the future.
