Decorating Your Home for Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving holiday relies on the season’s traditional staples for decoration, and we never tire of pumpkins, fall flowers, foliage and berries placed artfully around the home. Here are some inspired decorating ideas to make this Thanksgiving your best ever!

Pumpkin Tablescape

Set your Thanksgiving table with a killer pumpkin tablescape. Scoop out pulp from small pumpkins to make DIY vases and fill them with fall flowers and berries. Surround these cute containers with smaller pumpkins and greenery on a table runner. These pumpkin vases make great party favors your guests can take home after dinner.

Chalkboard Greeting

Welcome guests with a charming chalkboard you make by coating the inside of an old silver flea market tray with chalkboard paint. Write a message of welcome and finish by adding autumn leaves and bittersweet berries.

Burlap Wine Cover

Select a regional wine to serve your guests. Wrap the bottle with a scrap of rustic burlap and top with velvet ribbon. Stencil a short greeting on the burlap, and you’ve got a truly elegant addition to your table.

Magnolia Leaf Garland

Fashion a natural garland from a magnolia’s broad leaves to drape over your fireplace mantel or around a door frame. Start by collecting approximately 25 leaves for every foot of garland. Find the tutorial here.

Sage Candles

Light up your holiday by tying sprigs of sage around plain white candles with basic twine. The look is effortless and elegant.
