It’s time to put those jack-o-lanterns away and get out the next gathering’s decor. You’ve guessed it! Thanksgiving decor.
This holiday is all about the three “f’s”: Family, Food, and Fun. However, before digging up those infamous family recipes, or thinking about setting those placemats down, there are a few ways this year to elevate your Thanksgiving entertaining ideas with these tips!
Rustic Bar Cart
When people think of bar carts they generally tend to go for the standard brass or a gatsby-esque mid-century one. Keeping the festivities in mind, opt for a wooden bar cart that is more aligned with the theme and offers a different way to display your favorite holiday spirits!
Fun Place Holders
Get inventive this season and with your Thanksgiving decor by making your guests feel extra special. For instance, swap out cardboard placeholders for corks (just have to make a small incision to make a slit for the card) or go truly decadent with wishbone placeholders.
Pine Cone Magic
Perhaps you haven’t saved enough corks… no need to import fine wine. Opt for pine cones and give them a quick make-over with the stroke of a brush (literally). Their natural grooves provide the perfect place for a name card!
Thanksgiving Decor White Party
When sending out invites to your loved ones and making proper sleeping accommodations for those traveling from afar, decorating might seem a little overbearing after all the work you’ve put in before the holiday! Don’t let Thanksgiving decor be another chore!
For instance, planning for an all-white Thanksgiving (not just Christmas) can save you a headache in a very chic, and elegant way. Because the theme is monochromatic, it’s easier to get your mind in one place. White cloths, plates, table settings, and candles can do just the trick!
Sweet as Cinnamon
When not used for in your nutmeg, cinnamon (in its raw form), is the perfect finishing touch to your table-setting. It adds a je ne sais quois that celebrate a refined rustic sense of dining.
Go For the Gold
Runners are always a holiday must. Therefore, this season go big with gold runners that bring out the sparkle in everyone’s eye.
Tangy Thanksgiving Decor Delight
Nature is filled with color – and it’s right before your eyes! Use the brightest of colored fruit to decorate in a refreshing way. Your table will smell divine as well! Lemonade anyone?
Thanksgiving Decor Vase Craze
This season, pumpkin pie will not be the only way you serve deliciousness. This faux pumpkin centerpiece will be all the rave in fall foliage table display. Create the perfect centerpiece with the following tips. Get the “recipe” here: Pumpkin Vase.
Fun For All Ages Thanksgiving Decor
It’s never too early for children to learn proper table etiquette — but more importantly — have fun while they do! Put the same amount of love and energy as the adults’ into the children’s’ table by offering them a dining space of their own. Above all, this is an opportunity to get really creative with your Thanksgiving decor!
Have a Gourd Ole Time
Candles are a must. However, candles with a twist? That is where you wow your guests. In other words, hollow out your vegetation, give them a quick wash and dry, and you’ve got yourself a chic, new candle holder. In addition, your guests will be dying for your secret. It’s up to you to tell them…
No soup? No problem. This is the perfect touch to an elegant affair. Above all, bring your white gloves, darling.
