Last-Minute Thanksgiving Decorating

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and if you feel like your decorations are missing that little something that would make them perfect, here are some last-minute decorating ideas you can throw together in no time.

  • Floral Lace Table Runner/Chair SashPlace cards only require a pen, paper, scissors and maybe some twine or ribbon, but can take your dining room table from blah to beautiful. Write “thankful,” “grateful,” or the names of your guests and place them around cloth napkins or on each place setting.
  • Speaking of ribbon, this craft accessory does wonders when you have limited time. Buy a bulk amount with a printed turkey or leaf pattern, or in fall colors, and tie around glassware, chairs, collectibles and even lighting.
  • A strategically placed chalkboard with a message of thanks or invitation will enhance the warmth of your home; place behind a scented candle or among flower arrangements and use cursive or block lettering to make the Thanksgiving message stand out.
  • Glass vases and apothecary jars always bring elegance to a table or surface in your home, and for Thanksgiving the best things to fill them with are acorns, leaves and even mini pumpkins and gourds. Use faux varieties or go into your backyard for the real thing.
  • Table runners always enhance the decorative appeal of your entertainment spaces, and many can also be used as chair sashes, adding complementary elegance to your dining room or kitchen chairs.

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.
