As hard as it is to say goodbye to summer there is something very comforting about snuggling up in a warm sweater, watching the leaves drop and of course the best part about fall- thanksgiving! As we cover up the BBQ and put away the patio furniture we must now bring our summer entertaining indoors. But don’t fret- we’ll help you bring some of the outdoors to your Thanksgiving entertaining with our nature inspired decorating tips!
Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas don’t ya know! Make a fall wreath to greet your guests as they trickle in for Thanksgiving dinner. What you’ll need:
- Wire wreath ring
- Fall foliage (leaves, sunflowers, mums)
- Mini decorative pumpkins
This wreath is super easy to make. Simply wrap wire around the foliage and flowers so it covers and hides the ring. When the wreath is full, attach the pumpkins to the ring as a final touch. Ta-da--- a cute fall wreath to make your guests feel instantly at home.
Thanksgiving is all about taking the time to be grateful for what we have so why not write these things down? You don’t need much to make a thankful tree, just a small potted tree, some scrap paper and fishing line or thread.
During dinner get your guests to write down what they are thankful for and hang them on the tree. Keep the tree up past Thanksgiving to remind yourself of all the wonderful things in your life.
Give your pumpkins some spice, elegance and charm by painting them. For an elegant look try painting them white and, for something jazzier, use teal or pink. It will give a little more attitude to your Thanksgiving table.
