Thanksgiving is right around the corner and to be honest, by the time it arrives, I will already be decorating for Christmas. Yes, I go all out for Christmas, but I don't completely forget decorating for Thanksgiving.
I mainly focus on decorating the table for Thanksgiving dinner.
Years ago, I made my mother a very long Thanksgiving tablecloth and with the same fabric, I made myself some napkins with my serger.
I have now inherited the tablecloth which matches my napkins. This makes our table festive when it's my turn to host the holiday meal.
I put a cornucopia in the center with gourds and fall leaves. Or I use a basket of pine cones, gourds, and fall leaves. Another idea is a flower arrangement in yellows, reds, and oranges.
That is super-simple, but definitely gives us the Thanksgiving feel.
Sometimes the children and I do Thanksgiving crafts like a thankful tree or making our own Thanksgiving placemats. Oops I almost forgot the pine cone turkey crafts. All of these make cute additions to the table.
Here are some ideas for decorating from our house to your house.
