Thanksgiving Decoration

Can’t believe Thanksgiving is already here this year.  To welcome your guests into your home make buy or make a festive thanksgiving inspired wreath to place on your front door.  Use fall colors such as oranges, burnt yellows and browns to enhance the wreath.  Real or faux leaves may be used to complete your wreath.
The busyness of the holiday season doesn’t mean you can’t put together a table setting that is pleasing and makes your guests feel welcome.  Thanksgiving dinner is a time to slow down and enjoy your family and friends.  Always try to create a warm and welcoming mood for you guests to enjoy.  When setting the table for your Thanksgiving feasts try and use autumn colors to brighten up your table.  Stick to oranges, burnt reds, burnt yellows, browns and olive greens.  To put a unique touch, put place cards on the plates for your guests.  Another fun idea for place cards is to attach the standard card to a pear or other small seasonal fruit or vegetable, such as a mini pumpkin.   Use colored chargers underneath your china to give it that extra pop.  To give your table a festive feel sprinkle leaves between plates to adorn the table.  Evenly space large candles in stylish holders to add warmth to your table.  Opt for you and your guests to use more sophisticated linen napkins at your table.  Place beautiful goblets of berries and sweets around your guests to add color as well.  Use a cheerful table runner and or tablecloth to make your table more dynamic.
