But this year I had actually seen and idea for my table on Christmas that I just died over! So I bought the little balls and the candles and the candy and I put it all together, and I HATED IT!!!! So, a quick trip to the dollar store, and some creativity with things I already had, and I have a table fit for 10 in less than an hour. And the best part...it cost UNDER $30!!!
Here was my first table. I had purchased all of these items at Hobby Lobby and the Dollar store for this table. (There is a price breakdown at the bottom)
So I grabbed some garland that I still had in a box...
Still not enough.
Throw on some gold balls from the $1 store
"Hey Mom, don't we have some of those paper mache letter that we can paint gold?"
Now, just a touch of ribbon on the candles and it's done!
Don't forget to fix the Chandelier to match!
and look, even Cuddles decided to get in on the red and white theme!!
So how did I do all of this for under $30?
