Thanksgiving decoration ideas

With so much focus on the meal, decorating for Thanksgiving can often get overlooked. Here are some simple Thanksgiving table decoration ideas to help you create a holiday to remember.

  • Preserve fall leaves by ironing them between two pieces of wax paper. Cut the leaves out, leaving a tiny border of wax paper around the edges, and scatter them on your table or use them to create festive garland or streamers.
  • Use a hollowed pumpkin as a vase for an autumn colored bouquet. To preserve the centerpiece, coat the inside of the pumpkin with petroleum jelly and place flowers in a glass container inside the pumpkin.

Take a tray and make a way to say…

We love centerpieces you can pull together with simple things found around your house or inexpensively. We found a gorgeous way to make an arrangement with any tray in your cupboard. Just grab a couple of votive candles, a vase and a few roses from the grocery store or your garden. Great for Valentine’s Day, a bridal shower, in your bathroom, living room and more.

We love elegant simplicity and this super easy edible harvest theme centerpiece idea is perfect. Just pour your candy corn into a clear glass container of just about any shape small or large. Put a white or black candle inside for a little Halloween festival flair. Stagger them with small pumpkins in between the vases and you’ve got a 60-second centerpiece solution!

We really like this whether we’re serving this month’s Mexican Meatballs or the Seared Valencia Tuna Steaks and hearty comfort foods on the menu this October.
