Decorating for Thanksgiving
One of my favorite trends that we’re beginning to see is the use of copper! I like it because it’s cheap, elegant, and easy to decorate with. I’m still a fan of gold (I’ll always love it) but copper is something new and exciting! If you’re hosting Thanksgiving for the first time, consider investing in a few accessories or serving trays that incorporate this growing trend.
Keeping with tradition though, I love a classic wreath! My mom has one for every single holiday or season and I’m probably going to buy some when I move out. A little decorating tip: use the wreath as a centerpiece for your table. Inside of it place a candle or a bowl of cranberries, a classic Thanksgiving dish!
Placemats are another love of mine. I bought these gorgeous Cynthia Rowley ones at TJ Maxx even though I don’t have my own dining room to use them in. They were on sale and I just couldn’t resist! I saw the “thankful” ones above at Target today for $3.99 each and stood there looking at them for a good minute or two before I decided that once again, I don’t have my own dining room and these aren’t exactly my mom’s style. They’re really cute for the holiday though and might be perfect for the inevitable “kid’s table” that pops up at nearly every Thanksgiving gathering.
If none of these ideas fly with you, then go find yourself a ceramic turkey to put on your table and be done with it! I’d caution you when putting it on the table though- turkeys have a front and back, so be careful where the back faces as to not offend anyone if you know what I mean.
