Dollar Store Christmas: Affordable Table Setting

Here is a cute frugal idea from Red Head Can Decorate!! 

Check this out.
The runner is wrapping paper from Michael’s.  Just fold to the size you need and tape it underneath.  No washing afterward, just toss it :) The plates & bowls I found at the $1 store.  They remind me of Martha’s with the beaded edges.  My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I found them.  The chargers are from Hobby Lobby.  The napkins are regular generic paper napkins I folded in long rectangles.The pine cones and branches are from our yard,
and the cranberries are leftover from Thanksgiving.
The bulbs are old, and everything else I had.
When deciding what to use, try to stick to 2 or 3 colors.
Use different sized patterns like here the checker board against the stripes.
Also, don’t forget to add in a natural element like flowers, or branches.
Even a piece of fruit will work.
I usually walk around the house gathering whatever I have on hand.
