• Hung out with LEGO Santa for a bit this morning at #legolandatlanta at Phipps Plaza. This year I’m trying to be more intentional about getting the girls out to do Holiday activities even though mama tired. What activities do you do with your kids during the holidays.  Looking for ideas.
  • Cold & Flu season has hit our home! #VicksPartner After all the guests left from Thanksgiving, someone forgot to take their cold with them.  Poor Harper has been coughing like crazy and then Peyton started. Luckily I had the new @Vicks_US Children's Cough & Congestion medicine on deck.  Vicks Children's medicine provided fast relief and is free of artificial dyes and flavors, high fructose corn syrup and alcohol. Mr. was like " This stuff is good, she hasn't coughed all day". Stock up now because that cold train is never late!  Link in profile to learn more.  Use as directed and keep out of reach of children. #vickschildrens
  • I remember when I used to make holiday gift guides for everyone on your lists.  Now, I need y’all to tell me what to buy for gifts.  I haven’t purchased one gift yet. I’m struggling what to buy Peyton and Mr. Please leave ideas in the comments. Bonus points if it’s BOB. Don’t forget to order your @greentopgifts Clarence Claus paper and gifts! 📷 @kaynjames
  • Holiday table & dining room reveal all in one. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around these parts with my #DollarTree table. Details on my dining room coming soon. Link in profile. I’ve also teamed up with some amazing lifestyle & home bloggers of color for more holiday inspiration! @heytrinasmall
  • Do y’all remember when Peyton used to do outfit posts every week (for years)?! Harper looks like Peyton here. Or maybe it’s because this is Peyton’s old coat that I got from @byaracely 😆. Harper put this whole look together, i just to button her up.  This baby has style. Outfit details on the blog heytrina.com & link in profile.
  • Just when I thought I had my house together and could rest, we got another surprise issue.  While we take are of that issue here’s Harper’s updated big girl room.  She graduated from new toddler bed (that she never slept in) to a shinny new daybed. I wanted to maximize her play space and a daybed was the best option. There’s also a trundle underneath so it was perfect while we hosted guests during Thanksgiving. #toddlerroomdecor #bohodecor

Dollar Tree Holiday Table

November 9, 2017

It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I already have some major Christmas spirit.  For the record, I did do a fall porch (here), I just forgot to share on the blog.  I’m excited to decorate get my home ready for Christmas.  Previous years, we were the family that would pick up a Christmas tree the weekend before and spend $10 on a real tree. I really want my girls to experience all the joy they possibly can during the holiday season.  After rolling up on the Dollar Spot at Target, they had so many cute holiday items I was convinced that I could pull off a holiday table on a budget.  My dining room is still a blank canvas but I have a beautiful big table just waiting for some holiday love.  With items from Dollar Tree, Dollar Spot (Target) and Hobby Lobby, I put together this beautiful table.

Dollar Tree: Florals, Plates, Chargers, Candles, and Flower pots | Hobby Lobby: Dinner napkins ($7 pack of 4) and mistletoe ($0.75) | Target Dollar Spot: Table runner ($3)

I started with two table runners from the Dollar Spot ($3) because my table is 100 inches long.  Table runners for this size table usually run about $30 on the low end so doing it this way was a steal.  All my dinner plates are from Dollar Tree.  After checking out white plates at several stores I settled on these white ones and bought a case of them.  My table seats 8 so it can get expensive buying placemats and chargers.  I found these nice gold ones at Dollar Tree.  I believe they also come in red and green.

For the flowers, I used 4 stems.  I definitely could use one or two more in each pot but I got all the stems in this style that they had.  I was planning on using clear mason jars as vases to save money but I came across these cute metal pots at the Dollar Tree.  The candles came two in a pack and I put them in the glass candle holders.

The dinner napkins are the most expensive thing on my table.  I needed 8 so I had to buy two packs of 4.  Luckily, it was 50% off of $15.  You could easily do this with nice decorative napkins.  I used this tutorial on how to fold dinner napkins.

All together I spent $66.  That sounds like a lot but that includes 8 plates and chargers.  So if you have these items at home, you can save a lot of money. Like I mentioned earlier, a table runner would run you $30 on the low end.  You really could get by with just the florals and candles and call it a day.  I hope this helps you to get into the holiday spirit like it has helped me.

    This just goes to show people that you do not have to break the bank to have a great tablescape.
