Everyday Housewares on your Thanksgiving Table

repurposing daily housewares items :: Thanksgiving tabletop

Here are two super affordable ideas to show creativity on your Thanksgiving tabletop without breaking the bank. At Bistro Chez Roger in Montreal, they use a 12-inch bread pan to serve bread. A clothespin becomes a casual napkin ring. So after the party, you are not stuck with 20 napkins rings that you will never use again.

Plus, using everyday housewares will leave you more money to make sure everyone has the same glasses, plates and flatware.

      Marcy: I am glad that you like the clothespin idea for your napkins. I own a few napkins rings but honestly I rarely used them. There are so many ways you can display your napkins without a ring that I do not feel the need to put them on my table.
