Family Dollar For Fall . . .

I was recently contacted by the awesome people at Family Dollar to sample some Halloween/Autumn decorations. It's probably not the first place that comes to mind when you think of holiday decor but they have a great selection this season. Family Dollar has great deals on all your trick-or-treating essentials. Halloween costumes, candy and home decor are available now at Family Dollar Stores.

Check out all these awesome finds from my local Family Dollar:

I decided to create a fall tablescape using some of my own items and the goodies I found at Family Dollar.

Oh wow! I am just loving how this turned out! 

I love those candles! 

What I love about this is that it's not holiday specific. It can be used for Halloween, Thanksgiving or any occasion during the fall. Plus, this can all be used again and again each year. Awesomeness!!

Here is a cost breakdown for my tablescape.

Family Dollar

Vinyl leaf tablecloth  $3.50
Leaf candy dish  $1.00
Leaf napkin holder  $2.00
Pilgrim salt & pepper  $1.00
Faux pumpkins/gourds  $3/bag
Tall Glass Candles  $1.50 each
Mini Scented Candles  2/$1
Dinner Mints  $1
Butcher's Twine  $2.00
Bag of Pebbles $1.00

Items I already had

Round placemats - Walmart - I think they were $1 each
Pumpkin Plates - Kohls (from several years ago)
Cloth Napkins - Hobby Lobby $1 each (they are actually bandanas!)
Pumpkin Tea Lights - Target Dollar Spot (from several years ago)
Faux leaves - I've had these forever and I'm sure they came from the dollar store!

I still have a few more items to use so stayed tuned for some more Family Dollar decorating!!

*I was provided with Family Dollar merchandise from MSL in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

Linking up to the following parties:



  1. It looks great, and I get a sense of Fall coziness. I am coming to the conclusion I need to print picture of everyone's fall decor to hang around my house. That is about the only way I am going to do any fall decorating. Everyone is posting such beautiful pictures. I'm going to have to change my ways. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love that Family Dollar Store !

  3. wow! that's great. you're right, it really can be used all season long. lucky you on being contacted, too.

  4. omg I cant believe those big candles are from the dollar store!!! the decorations look nice!
