Thanksgiving Home Decor

Home Sweet Home 

Thanksgiving Home Décor Ideas
Thanksgiving is the start of the holiday season. While the standard pumpkins and
scented candles are a nice touch, there are so many other options for decorating
a home for Thanksgiving. Consider these interesting and unusual touches to bring
a fall feel to your home.
• Colorful Leaves – In most parts of the country, there are piles of fall leaves
in the front yard. There are a huge variety of uses for these bright leaves.
Gather some to use on the dining room table, inside candle hurricanes or
scatter along the mantle.
• Natural Elements – Decorations don’t need to be so obvious. Consider
using driftwood, acorns and pinecones to add a fall flavor to your home
décor.
• Fall Fruit – Lemons placed in a bowl have long been a staple in spring and
summertime staging. In fall and winter, change the lemons to a variety of
colors of apples. Everything from red to green and everything in between
adds a seasonal tone to the kitchen.
• Pillows and Throws – There’s no rule that says that one needs to keep the
same pillows and throws throughout the home all year around. Consider
fall/winter colors and themes to add interest to living rooms, bedrooms and
dens.
