Thursday’s Theme: Table Decor for Your Thanksgiving Table

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Leaf Harvest Table RunnerThere are countless ways to style your table for Thanksgiving dinner – besides with what you’re cooking for food. Here we feature some of our standard recommendations for creating a beautifully decorated table that still has room for all of your delicious side and main dishes, no matter the size or space of the tabletop.

Lighting

Tealights and votive candles are the perfect accents for creating a little mood lighting and adding a touch of elegance to any table. Scatter a few across the table just as they are, use fall-colored candles to add a warm look and/or incorporate them into other décor and centerpieces. Use your favorite scented candles for an inviting atmosphere or opt for flameless varieties so you can leave them lit without worry.

Garland and Wreaths

Long, lush festive garland looks beautiful when draped along a rectangular dining room table – especially when you add pumpkins, turkey figurines and other accents to it. However, if you have a smaller or round table, a small wreath or candle ring can step up the style while still leaving you plenty of room for food and guests.

Place Settings

We love the look of coordinating runners and placemats; they really bring the table together in warm, autumn style, and for family meals, when they are machine washable we love them even more! Whether you use a matching set or not, don’t underestimate the power of decorative (and usable!) plates and glassware. Choose a color scheme like warm reds, yellows and oranges; or use one color like silver, black or brown to make your centerpiece(s) really stand out, while still maintaining coordinating and decorative place settings. This includes festive linens too – for laying beautiful silverware on top of and catching crumbs during the meal.

Thursday’s Theme: Happy Fall

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

Fall 2015Happy autumn! We are excited for it to be here, because this is the season that seems to draw the most creativity and color when it comes to décor. Versatile fall decorations are key, because many autumn themes pertain to the outdoors and multiple holidays. Vegetables, leaves, country accents and inviting scents are just a few wonderful things to incorporate into your home this fall.

Front Porch

Your front porch, front steps or quaint patio space are excellent canvases for decorating during any season, but especially for fall. With the holidays near, chances are you will be celebrating with family, friends and frequent guests, so an inviting and warmly decorated entry is an excellent way to make them feel welcome.

During the fall season, Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations can be incorporated and switched out – another reason autumn decorating is so wonderful – to match your personal preferences and home’s exterior. The example to the right (Traditional Spaces) portrays this extremely well. The pumpkins, wreaths and garland are all fall staples; they will complement the season right up to its end. The crows, cobwebs and spooky candle lanterns are a little more specific to an elegant Halloween look, and can be traded out for turkey and pilgrim-inspired accents as well as more pumpkins and gourds when Thanksgiving closes in.

Throughout Your Home

Subtlety is usually the best policy when decorating for a particular season or holiday, especially if your design preferences and stylistic decor in each room are specific to certain color palettes or themes. Designate a few smaller spaces in your home as areas where you can be seasonally creative, like a mantel, a hallway table or reading nook. Use smaller accents to portray holiday spirit, and seasonally colored garlands or decor to dress up existing decor or the designated space. This will support your desire for creating a lush, welcoming seasonal display while maintaining your love for the way your home is already decorated.

Monday Must-Haves: Subtle Fall Accents

Monday, September 21st, 2015

Sunflowers & Leaves WreathThe holidays are officially here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, and this week’s must-have items all look great during the fall season. While our last Must-Have post featured charming Halloween décor, this batch of necessities are a little more subtle, albeit they will add beautiful harvest flair to your home and favorite décor.

Autumn Round Jute Rug

Fall wreaths may just be the prettiest wreaths of the entire year. The warm colors and foliage create the most inviting look on your front porch or above a mantel. The Sunflowers & Leaves Wreath includes a hint of blossoming summertime with the flowery accents, while incorporating just-turning leaves in rustic colors. Its size and fullness make it the perfect home accent; one that you can leave displayed as long as you would like.

Pumpkins & Vines Chair Pad

Speaking of fall wreaths, our Autumn Round Jute Rug features an inner ring of leaves, pinecones, fruit and other accents in rich colors of red, brown, golden yellow and orange. These are complemented by the beautiful, durable outer braids which warmly complete the rug. Perfect for an entryway, this is one of the most complementary harvest season rugs, and it can even be reversed in order to incorporate the colors into your home all year long.

Autumn Berry Candle Rings

One of the best parts of the holiday season for us is spending more time with family around the dinner table, whether it is Thanksgiving, football Sunday or a traditional dinner during the week. Our Pumpkins & Vines Chair Pad will enhance the spirit of the season in any dining room, whether there are people in there or not, and will add additional comfort to any seating arrangement. The classic hand hooked wool is a timeless favorite, and with complementary décor available this is the perfect piece to add to your home.

Copper Wire LED LightsWe also love having candles around the house, and with our Autumn Berry Candle Ring any pillar candle can go from plain to sophisticated. Available in two sizes, these orange accents complement Halloween and harvest décor, and add a warm look to year round décor throughout your home. They make excellent additions to centerpieces, mantels and bookshelf displays, and won’t take up a lot of room if you don’t have very much to spare.

Although simple string lights look beautiful throughout the year, our Copper Wire LED Lights feature an autumn-like touch with the wire’s color. These battery operated lights fit in various sized jars for an illuminating look, and can be incorporated into a fall wreath or mantel display to enhance an inviting appearance. The length is just perfect for your satisfaction, and the bendable wire adds to easy shaping for almost any harvest display.
