Thanksgiving feels like it has snuck up on us, and with the holiday being a week away, we have several decorating tips that can make your home feel like Thanksgiving in no time.
To create a space of warmth and coziness, decorate with colors that are inspired by the season, such as soft brown, burnt orange, and cranberry.
Before your guests even walk into your home, you want them to feel comfortable and relaxed. An easy way to do this is to welcome your guests by hanging a festive fall-themed wreath on your front door. This sets the tone that once they walk inside, there will be a warm, festive atmosphere awaiting them.
Near your entrance, have a thankful board either hanging on a wall or resting on an accent table, where your guests can write down something or someone that they are thankful for. By the end of the day, your thankful board will be overflowing with reasons that everyone can be thankful.
If you’re hosting a holiday dinner, it will be important to have a festive dining table. Add festive table linens to each place setting, and create fall-themed place tags for your table. You could use pretty leaves gathered from your yard, or use mini pumpkins with a name written on a tag, tied around the stem. For your centerpiece, use decorative vases that are layered with twigs, berries, pine cones, and corn kernels to create a full fall effect.
Remember, when it comes to decorating, less is more, and sometimes having too many decorations can be overwhelming. Keep décor simple, stick to several colors, and decorate with what you already have to make your home feel warm and welcome for your friends and family.
