Happy Friday everyone!
Now that the Halloween decor is all tucked away for another year, I’ve been looking for some ideas on how to dress the house for Thanksgiving.
My goal is to keep it simple and pretty since I’ll be hosting Christmas as well and will be transitioning in a few weeks again.
I thought that maybe you’d like to see what I’ve come up with.
Who doesn’t love the smell of cinnamon?
Tie cinnamon sticks around candles with some jute twine and place on a favorite dish.
So easy, gorgeous and the heated cinnamon makes the room smell amazing.
(I’ve seen bundles of cinnamon sticks at JoAnn Fabrics & Michaels Crafts).
How about stacking pumpkins of funkins?
(The’re on sale now so stock up, yay!)
Using artificial pumpkins as a serving topiary. Genius!
The possibilities are unless and sure to be a source of conversation for your guests.
Just get a couple of plates at the vintage shop and hot glue in place.
Another great way to use candles and make into a great centerpiece is to stack fruit.
In this case, apples are the perfect choice.
Little mini apples would work best.
White gourds with tapers and berries.
Cut a hole in the top, add a little hot glue to secure the taper and hot glue your berries as well.
Wouldn’t these look “gourdeous” on the dining table.
I adore them because they are so versatile.
A cluster of candles inside or actually you could put gourds of different heights too.
Hot glue a spray of leaves, pinecones and berries and add a bow.
(Home Goods always has such a wonderful selection)
Finally, a wall hanging is always so festive and decorative.
Our burlap beauty says it all.
Hang it over the fireplace, from the mantel, on the stair railings, over the front door to greet your guest.
( It is available in our Etsy Shop here)
On that note,
I’d like to take a moment and tell you all that I am so “Thankful” for all of you!
This is our first year with the blog and you have been so very loyal I really appreciate each one of you!!!
I’d like to wish you and your family a Wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
