Decorating on a budget this season? Fall and Thanksgiving decorations are often interchangeable. You can use the same home decor ideas all season or swap a few things in and out to keep your coffee table decor or centerpieces looking fresh. Here are some ideas to decorate your home for Thanksgiving and fall.
Your front door is the perfect place to welcome people to that fall feeling. You can make a wreath yourself or buy one. Either way, the wreath will show people that you pay attention to details and that the inside of your home will be just as beautiful.
If you have a chalkboard, it’s the perfect time to pull it out. You can also make one yourself with chalkboard paint. Write down some reasons why you and your family are thankful, and then display the chalkboard in the house for a cute decoration that reminds everyone why we gather at this time of year.
Gourds and Pumpkins
Small pumpkins and gourds are simple decorations that work perfectly for Thanksgiving table arrangements or for around the house during autumn. Use mini-pumpkins to hold seating cards at a dinner party, or, you can simply put a small arrangement of gourds on the coffee table or in the center of your dining table. If you want to get even fancier, you can make a pumpkin vase.
A Thanksgiving banner that says something like “Give Thanks,” “Thankful,” or “Happy Thanksgiving” can set the mood and work as an accent piece for other decorations.
Autumn Table Runner or Tablecloth
One of the best Thanksgiving ideas for dressing up a table is to add a fall-themed table runner or tablecloth. You’ll be able to tie everything together with this focal point for your dining table decor.
Some extra lighting accents can help set the mood. Orange twinkle lights or tea candles in mason jars with a burlap bow or leaf ribbon can help get everyone into the thankful spirit.
You can get guests and family members thinking more about what they’re grateful for with this easy Thanksgiving table decoration idea. Cut placemat-sized pieces of parchment paper. On the side, write “I Am Thankful For…” and then add a few lines for guests to fill in the spaces themselves.
Few things say “cozy” in the same way that flannel does. Consider using plaid napkins or flannel accents around the house to make people feel at home.
