Thanksgiving table!

Well our table was simple! I had worked at ten hour shift the day before thanksgiving and didnt have enough time to go "all out" haha! i was cleaning my house with my AMAZING SHAKLEE products that do WONDERS!!! anyways! I didnt have enough plates so i went to the dollar store and bought 4 extra plates for a dollar a peice!
Then i used Pincones that i had picked up outside my work and made Name tags on Word Documents on my computer! Cheap and easy!
I also had the kids at my work help me make a few decorations with the pincones! this is what we did!
 We had a race to collect them (but everyone won a sucker!) then we Painted them and while the paint was wet we coated it with glitter! it was so much fun and they loved it! (if you tie a string around the stem its an ornament! and they look so beautiful on a tree!)

I didnt get pictures of the food! but i made a Dump cake!
Yellow cake mix ontop of  Cherry pie filling and Crushed Pinapple COMPLETELY drained! (cost me about 5$)
I also made home-made bread...
(Free :D )
with Honey-butter
and jello dessert wich is
Raspberry jellow and  crushed pinapple and cranberry sauce with whole cranberrys
Topped with creamcheese/coolwhip!
(cost about 6$)
ok i have spent roughly 15 dollars...
what else did i buy?!
Sweet potatoes- 3 $ i think
i didnt buy very many
and um OH green olives 2$
carrots 3$
pickles 3 $
So i went over by 1 Dollar! bummer! but hey! we had wonderful time at our table with family and friends!
