Decorating for Thanksgiving can be a little hectic and can make you feel uneasy about where you want to take your ideas you have. With this list of decor that would look good together, you are sure to find a look you love without spending too much time on it!
Pumpkins are always a great inexpensive option when trying to find ways to spruce up your home. They are so versatile that you could paint them, write on them, or leave them plain with flower accents. They are great for decorating a stand, table, and mantle! The best part about pumpkins is the scent of them too!
2. Thanksgiving scented candles
Warm smelling candles are the best when trying to set the right mood this Thanksgiving season. You can put them in every room to create an inviting atmosphere! The lighting that comes from them is great for those cold movie nights with blankets and cozy pillows!
3. Thanksgiving themed tablecloths
The easiest way to bring Thanksgiving into your home is by adding a nice table cloth with pumpkins, leafs, scare crows, and warm colors. This will make your dinning room look the part without it looking like you’re trying too hard to be Thanksgiving. Having a cute but low key tablecloth lets you decorate your kitchen and dining room with more than painting or pictures!
Flowers are one of my favorites when trying to find ways to get the look I’m going for. There are so many colors to choose from and type that there is every style for whatever look you’re going for! The most popular colors are purples, oranges, tans, and burgundy. These colors look amazing together but stand out all by themselves!
Don’t be afraid to add a little plaid to your design! There are so many types of plaid to choose from which makes finding the right style not very hard. It’ll be the color which is the hard part! You won’t want to be full on Christmas, but you’ll want to make it so it’ll look good during then too. Go for the darker colors of greens and purples with white; those are the best when wanting to max out your time of any Thanksgiving decor!
6. Turkey’s Everywhere
Don’t shy away from turkey’s. That is the theme of Thanksgiving and it can bring a little humor into the decor process too! Weather it’s on blankets, napkins, a statue; it’s never too much!
7. Autumn Colored Leaves
Bringing autumn into the space your decorating is the goal when you want to bring in the elements! Maybe not bringing in real leaves, but that could be cool to put in a jar with lights in them. See? Decor options are endless with what you can do! It’s always fun to sprinkle fake leaves on a mantle or tie them together with a string and hang them. Anything is possible!
This will make any door of wall fun to look at. It’ll make other people admire the wreath you chose and where you put it! A wreath can add all sorts of color to your room and can make it smell great if you got a real one, which I totally recommend! They make a space feel bigger, airier. The colors you pick for a wreath can tie every Thanksgiving decor you placed into your space!
9. Get Cozy
Always think about how blanks and pillows can be incorporated into a space! not only are they stylish, they are great for bring the cozy factor up to any room! They can also be great for covering things that don’t really have the pattern you’re going for but don’t want to move it!
They smell amazing! You can put them in any jar or flower vase. You could scatter them throughout a dining table, side table, and coffee table! Pairing them with another scent is great too! It’s like your own candle! They are great for filling spaces you don’t know how to fill you to hang!
Put them everywhere! Lights are great for those night where you want to relax and take in the scents and sights of your own creation. They can make a space feel inviting and sets a mood that makes you want to cuddle up to a movie with the people you love! This Thanksgiving Decor will be your friend with every other decoration on this list.
Hanging thankful quotes or pictures of the people you love most are a great way to add to Thanksgiving decor to your space! It’s a great way to fill up white places that need a little more color when you’re not sure how to fill it. Pictures are a great way to add more warmth to a space because of the feeling you get from them! Sitting on a couch and looking at a saying or quote which makes you happy and warm inside is what Thanksgiving is all about! It’s just a great way to incorporate family into a space which is yours!
13. Place Mats
If you have a beautiful table you don’t want to cover, place mats are a great way to incorporate the colors of your table into the Thanksgiving decor you have! You go from rustic to warm, colorful to old time-y with any place mats. You could have a theme of one print going throughout the space and have the place mats do the same thing! They are great for adding a little touch for a space without over doing it!
14. Homemade Decor
Making homemade paper turkeys or candy veggies, there are so many ways to put more of a family stamp on a space! This is a great way to add Thanksgiving decor without breaking the bank. Being able to put a unique twist on the decor your chosen can made any space grow more into the space you want to stay in for the holidays!
15. Have Kids Make Decor
Kids decorating skills can be very cute and just the things your family might need to add a little hominess to the space! Kids are great creatively and can draw, paint, and go shop for things you never thought would look good in the space you’re creating!
