Halloween’s easy. Just use a few jack-o-lanterns, some sparkly spiders, and a couple of faux webs and you’re done. Thanksgiving gets tricky since there aren’t as many obvious choices nestled in the aisles between the Halloween and Christmas items.
Leaves, pumpkins, and warm neutrals combine to make decorating your home for Thanksgiving about so much more than a turkey in the middle of the table.
A mantel is an unexpected way to welcome your guests, because the focus is usually on the table and place settings. Using lights along the branches will give it a festive look without veering into Christmas territory.
Speaking of centerpieces and place settings, using candles with a message on them that runs down the length of the table is another way to spice up your home for Thanksgiving.
Wheat may not be the first thing you think of when you want to decorate for fall or Thanksgiving, but a bundle like this, tied with a satin ribbon in a rich tone, is an inexpensive option for centerpieces, mantels, or anywhere you’d like to add a touch of fall. The napkin ring is a nice additional touch.
The Thankful Tree project can vary in size, depending on whether you want a centerpiece or something larger to liven up a corner of your home. On each note is something to be thankful for.
Decorating for the time between Halloween and Christmas can be challenging, but by choosing autumnal tones, texture, and sometimes even special messages spelled out on a table or a tree, it’s possible to decorate in a way that celebrates fall and Thanksgiving.
