It is almost time to decorate your Thanksgiving table. If you are looking to spice up your décor, here are our favorite T-day decoration ideas that are both cost effective and also warm and inviting.
· Adding corn kernels to your glass candle vases. It’s a simple touch, but adds a festive twist to your already beautiful candle lighting. The best part, you can still use the kernels again once the holidays are over.
· Wrap your silverware in colorful fall napkins and twine. Adding a simple, rustic bow to your cutlery will add a nice touch to your table.
· Have pinecones laying around but don’t know what to do with them? Grab a big, decorative bowl and fill it with your pinecones. Try adding a medium-sized candle to the middle of it for extra warmth (battery operated only as pinecones are flammable). If you are feeling crafty, you can visit a local crafts store to purchase some glittery spray paint and spray a few of your pinecones for some additional shine.
· Buy a few small pumpkins and gourds at your local grocery store (or at a pumpkin patch) to sprinkle along your table runner. Use a few green leaves from your backyard or purchased from a craft store to include with them. No need to be symmetrical. Asymmetry is eye-popping and catchy.
· Add an empty glass vase to your table or set it off to the side and use sticky lettering (or pens that write on glass) to write “I am thankful for”… keep a few pieces of paper and pens next to the vase and allow people to add their notes. Use dessert time to read a few of the notes people contributed. This will add a personal touch to your feast!
