Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas

In order to help you out, here are some thanksgivings decorating ideas that you steal to make your home look autumnal and warm for the holiday.

There are a lot of seasonal items that you can use for decoration such as gourds, acorns, pumpkins, leaves and harvest corn. Ribbons, cranberries, faux turkey feathers and colors such as gold, orange, burgundy, purple and brown are what you need to have in your home because they scream thanksgiving time. For porch columns and staircase you can wound around garlands. Garlands are also great for hanging on a bathroom or any room. They can position on top a fireplace or across a vanity mirror.

Decorating your home is easy with the right décor like cornucopia. What is a cornucopia? It is a horn shaped, hollow wicker basket often filled with bread, corn and other food harvested during the thanksgiving season. In old Roman, the meaning of the word “cornucopia” is horn of plenty. One of the stories handed down from generation to generation is that zeus was playing with amalthea, a goat and while playing one of the horns accidentally broke off. Because of the accident, zeus promised the goat that the horn would full of fruits that it wanted.

Over time, the horn became a basket, but in the shape of a curly cone then the Christian used the image of the horn with fruits as one of the symbols of thanksgiving. Cornucopia became the symbol of bounty until today. It is often seen in many thanksgiving tables as a centerpiece. You can find different sizes of cornucopia baskets at craft stores. When buying one for thanksgiving décor, choose a basket that is large enough to hold miniature pumpkins and small gourds. There are plenty of examples in this post to give you an idea.

Fall wreaths are a traditional welcome décor in most homes. It is placed on the front door to make your home inviting and charming. Take note, there are many types of wreaths so you do not always have to go with circular shape and greenery type of wreaths. You can even create your own wreaths made of silk wheat fronds and ribbons. If you are buying ribbons always go for purple, burgundy and gold for autumnal look.

The table setting is a great example of vintage look. If given the chance to celebrate thanksgiving, i would love my table to look like this. I love the way the vintage lace was laid down on the center and the wooden box placed on top of it. The box was filled with pine cones, ironstone, pears, small pumpkins and apples. I also like the way the wheat was used in the table setting.

The prayer tag on a key is a great addition. It add a classic touch the vintage look.
