Using vintage finds is a great way to add elegance to your table. Thrift stores often have a lot of silver pieces available for relatively cheap prices. Even if the pieces have a little tarnish, they can look lovely used as a vase or accent.

Shopping at a local thrift store can provide an abundance of decorating items. if you are willing to mix and match pieces and use pieces in unconventional ways, then you can find everything you need for your Valentine’s Day table decor. For example, get an old pair of red rubber boots (or use ones you own) and stick some heart stickers on them, put mason jars in them and use them as vases on a sideboard.

Dollar Store Finds

Add Dollar Store Items to your Valentine’s Day table Setting

There are always lots of smaller decorative items at the local dollar store. I have found the best prices at Dollar Tree, since they still price many things at 1$. Always check prices at other discount stores, as sometimes the dollar store prices are higher than retail sales. In this image, everything can be repurposed for a Christmas Table or Canada Day, or add a blue charger plate or placemat for Independence Day.
