November is here and it’s time to replace all of the witches’ hats and spider webs with winter holiday decor. There are so many creative ways to decorate your home for Thanksgiving. We’re feeling inspired by the fall foliage so we’re sharing our 5 favorite Thanksgiving home decorations.

Mantle of Thanks

Nothing says cozy like a fireplace which means that your mantle is a perfect place for your winter holiday decorations. One of our favorite ideas for decorating your home for Thanksgiving is creating a mantle of thanks! Add photos of family and friends, frames of inspirational quotes, or use letter blocks to represent initials of people you’re thankful for. Not only will your mantle look festive, it’ll also be a great way to remind you and your family to give thanks!

Glass Vase Collections

Flowers in vases can be difficult to maintain when they’re in homes that have heaters turned on frequently. Skip the flowers but don’t put away those glass vases! Fill them with decorative, natural elements like pinecones, dried leaves, and pine branches or with rustic odds and ends like corks, rocks, or even whole cinnamon sticks. They’re an easy way to add a touch of festive Thanksgiving decoration to your home.

Set Your Dining Table Early

Make your dining table the centerpiece of your home by setting it early. Go simple and rustic with a burlap table runner, pine branches, and simple silverware or go for a luxurious statement with a set of gold and white plates, candles, and decorative plate topper. We also love using brown craft paper as a tablecloth with pinecones and pine branches lining the center. Get inspired and be sure to get creative!

Add Pumpkin Decorations

Don’t toss those pumpkins just yet! Pumpkins make the perfect Thanksgiving decorations for your home. Add them to the top of candlesticks, on your coffee table, bathroom counters, around candles, and more. It’s an easy way to add Thanksgiving home decor without going overboard on a holiday theme. Buy pumpkins in different colors besides orange to add a more sophisticated look to your decor. Cream colored ones will look classy and elegant while colorful ones like green or yellow will add a fun pop to your home.

Edible Decorations

One of our favorite ways to decorate our home for Thanksgiving is with food! Show off your baking skills on your kitchen table by including traditional decor like plaid tablecloths, mason jars with mistletoe, and candles. Your pies, cakes, and scones will look extra tasty and as a bonus your house will smell great while you bake! Not much of a baker? Bring home your favorite pastry and place it on top of a wooden cutting board and you’ve got yourself some semi-homemade Thanksgiving decor.
