Hey friends!!!

It feels great to be back from having my baby!  I love this time of year!  Fall is here and Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.  I’m always looking for fun ways to decorate on a tight budget.  Lucky for us, BHG has so many great finds to fit the bill!  I recently made my dining room guest ready using BHG’s line at Walmart… So fun and so cheap!  Let me show you the goodies I got…

Remember my dining room before??

Here it is now ready for Thanksgiving!

I found a great 16 piece Scroll Dining Set that was so cheap I was able to buy 2 sets.  That gives me 8 place settings.  I love the pattern, size and color of all the pieces.  I also love that these will work for all seasons and fit so good with the rest of my house!

And guess what?  They also have matching serving pieces!  I bought this 8″ serving bowl and filled it with pumpkins and gourds!

One of my favorite finds are these great buffet lamps for next to nothing!  I’ve been needing new ones and these fit perfectly! LOVE!

How fun is that?

Do you need to get your dining room guest ready for the holidays too??

BHG is giving 1 lucky Shanty reader a $100 gift card to Walmart to get their own home guest ready!  How do you win?

Leave me a comment here telling me you want to win!  That’s it!  We will randomly choose 1 winner to receive the card.

Good luck guys!  Ready, set, COMMENT!

  1. Boy am I glad I am a FB follower so I could see your tablescape! I love the creativity for the centerpiece. I may have to stea…errrr…borrow this idea 😉 I would love to win the gift card for WalMart. Son is getting married next year and this would help him and his bride-to-be with their wedding plans!

  2. I love your Table set. It looks so great and a welcome sight for the upcoming holiday. Best wishes to you on the birth of your little one. I would love to win the Wal-Mart gift card, I would so run right over and pick up the same set. Thanks for sharing.

  3. My husband and I are building a new house and I will need more great stuff from BHG to fill it! Love the dishes!!!

  4. First, CONGRATULATIONS! A new baby in the house, especially around the holidays is so exciting! I love what you have done with your dining room! I am on a very tight budget and was thinking I may have to use holiday paper plates etc… but if I win I could get dishes that would at least all match! Right now all I have now are dishes that are all mixed matched and forget serving pieces! That would be a dream to have that. For many years it has been my dream to have a complete set of anything! I even thought of asking my husband to splurge and get them for me for Christmas… not a very personal gift but that’s about the only time I can see spending that kind of money for something other than a real need. So I hope you pull my name! Love your site so much! Thank you for all your great creative ideas! Happy holidays and many blessings to you and your growing family!

  5. Great look! Very chic. I would like to win the giveaway for a young couple who just got married and literally have next to nothing. Wouldn’t it be fun to set this up for them (I know their Aunt) and let them come home to it?
