Decking the halls this holiday season doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Thrifty entertaining is quickly becoming a trend for many reasons. Not only is it easy on the pocketbook, it’s good for the environment, benefits local charities, and the finished look is beautiful and unique. Below, Thrift Town provides a few quick and easy tips guaranteed to wow guests and thrift critics alike.

1.    Putting battery operated lights into clear or crystal vases, decanters, or jars are a great way to provide additional light and add a classy, festive vibe to holiday décor.
2.    Don’t just put stemware on a silver tray and pass it around the party for people to take drinks off of, jazz it up by filling the tray with brightly colored ornament balls as shown in the accompanying photo.
3.    Bring life to a holiday buffet table by using bright and festive flat bed sheets as tablecloths. Traditional tablecloths are usually conservative by design, whereas bed sheets come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, and are inexpensive at thrift stores.
4.    Create holiday food displays by stacking candlesticks and colorful plates making multi tiered platters.
5.    Don’t throw away burnt-out outdoor holiday light bulbs. Roll them in glitter and put them into a clear vase making a cute, free, and earth friendly display.
6.    Wreaths don’t just have to be hung on doors; flip one on its back and create a beautiful centerpiece. Place a large candlestick in the center and voilà, beautiful and unique.
7.    String ornaments together using floral wire. Bags of ornaments can be picked up at Thrift Town for around $0.49 each.
