Thanksgiving is probably the easiest of all holidays when it comes to decorating. No purchase necessary, simply gather things you have around the home, inside and out, for a natural, beautiful display. No need to go overboard like you might on Christmas, just a few touches on the mantel, entryway table and in the dining room are all you need for a cozy, homey feel.
To make, simply gather any of the materials below or substitute your own. Arrange on a wooden block or serving tray at the center of your dining room table for a quick boost of Thanksgiving decor and you’ll be a day ahead of the game!
Acorns – Easy to find outside your home or at the park. Fill a vase, bowl or mason jar with acorns and use with or without a candle.
Candles – Nothing new here, candles are a must-have for an elegant dining experience. Vary colors, heights and widths of several candles in the center of the table for a beautiful light show. Even if you just have a few tealights, placed in a mason jar and interspersed throughout your display they can be a beautiful, rustic Thanksgiving decoration.
Fresh Flowers – Flowers are not just for spring and summer, whatever is still in season can still make for an elegant table centerpiece.
Greenery and Branches – No flowers? Clip greenery of any type from the garden and incorporate taller bare branches for extra height and a fall-inspired display.
Fruit – Apples, pears, persimmons, bowls of deep red cranberries – there is no end to the possibilities when decorating with fruit!
Fabric – Drape fall colored fabrics over curtain rods in a swoop, or use down the center of the table over a white cloth as a table runner.
