Getting your home ready for the holidays is one of the best reasons to change out the decor. Each season brings beautiful new ways to enhance your home’s interior through design. Home decorating for the holiday season allows you to add warmth and festive charm to every room. Here’s why decorating for Thanksgiving is fun and easy:
You Don’t Need a Big Budget
Thanksgiving decor incorporates natural elements like pumpkins, gourds, pine cones and leaves. You don’t need to have a big budget to achieve a great look. Use a combination of purchased, handcrafted, and found items to beautify your home. Focus on a few key areas, like the dining room, kitchen, and main living area. Large pumpkins and corn stalks can be carried over from Halloween to your Thanksgiving decor, adding seasonal style to your home’s exterior.
Transform Your Table
The dining table is the center of the Thanksgiving holiday, so it makes sense to focus much of the decor there. You want to create an attractive and functional tablescape. Use select decor pieces to transform your dining table into a festive and impressive place to eat. Start with a centerpiece, add plates, flatware, and name tags to place at each seat for guests. You can use fresh flowers or faux greenery to craft a beautiful centerpiece, as well as candles for a warm glow to add to the ambiance.
Use the Colors of the Season
The fall colors are some of the most vibrant, thanks to the changing foliage. Incorporate the colors of the season throughout your Thanksgiving decor. You can also add in touches of winter, with creams and whites. Thanksgiving is the lead into the winter months ahead, so you can’t go wrong with combining the colors of both seasons when decorating your home for the holiday.
