There’s nothing more satisfying than the sizzle of a plump turkey echoing throughout the kitchen…the sweet aroma of pecan pie wafting throughout the house…ah, Thanksgiving is on its way. I’m tempted to jump straight to Christmas decorations, but let’s enjoy the season, right? Each season only comes but once each year! From the front door to the kitchen table, here’s your guide to great thanksgiving decorations.
Thanksgiving Decorations at the Front Door
Around this time, nature starts looking a little…brown (unless you live in Hawaii, in which case, can I move in?). Instead of bemoaning this shift from green to brown, yellow, and orange, embrace it by coordinating your front door décor with nature! Nature picked your color palette; now you pick the decorations!
Thanksgiving Decorations in the Foyer
Speak to the purpose of Thanksgiving with sentiment art that makes your guests feel welcome, before you even say a word. “Happy Fall Y’all” is a good start (and one of the most popular sentiments of the season), but go a little further with “Always Give Thanks,” “Count Your Blessings,” and “In All Things Give Thanks.” You can lean these wall places up on your entryway console table, stack them at different heights on a pile of books, or intersperse them with family photographs.
Thanksgiving Decorations in the Living Room
Time to get cozy! This is the perfect place to go crazy with richly scented candles, pre-lit pumpkins, ceramic pumpkin accents, throw pillows with a metallic punch, and autumn-themed art. And don’t discount wreaths as just an outdoor decoration. Wreaths can be hung over large canvas prints, mirrors, windows, and even on indoor doors. Does your mantle need a fall wreath to finish it off?
Thanksgiving Decorations in the Dining Room
THIS is where the real magic happens. Your food will be delicious, there’s no doubt about that. Add to its beauty with dining table decorations in the same color family. Create the perfect fall tablescape with these essential elements: table runner, charger plates, centerpiece, small fall accessories, mood lighting, and chair covers.
