Thanksgiving is a time for celebration and family. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most difficult seasons to decorate your home for. Set the stage for family gatherings with these super easy Thanksgiving decorating ideas.
Flank your front door on either side with bundles of corn stalks, for a smaller version, hang dried Indian corn on either side. Flower pots and window boxes that have been bare since summer are the perfect places to create fun displays of pumpkins and gourds.
Entry and Living Room. These will be the first impressions most visitors will have of your home. Make it special with fall scented candles burning to add that instant seasonal touch. Make the most of these spaces by creating festive displays on tables, shelves, and mantles with fun Thanksgiving themed figurines.
Pilgrim figurines. These can be purchased at many dollar and discount stores. When grouped together, these pieces create an entire Thanksgiving scene.
Foil Pumpkins, These are the must have of the autumn season bringing a new twist to a standard decorative accent that has been used for generations.
However we decide to decorate our homes for Thanksgiving we should remember the meaning of the season and let whatever meaning thanksgiving has to us to be reflected in the way we decorate our home.
Allowing our Thanksgiving décor to reflect our gratitude, whether specifically or in general will bring a reflection of the season into our homes and allow the spirit of thanksgiving to be present throughout the month rather than just for the actual Thanksgiving meal. Thanksgiving décor may reflect the colors of the harvest season or the things we are most grateful for, but ultimately should reflect our hearts.
