Simple Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas

Mar 5, 2008
For most people, Thanksgiving decorating involves turkeys, gourds, and a few well placed fall items such as reeds and even feathers. However, for many people the allure of Thanksgiving decorating has gone out of style and replaced with the desire to create something unique, eye catching, and of course, filled with grace and splendor. The right home accents can give a home that Thanksgiving charms without pulling out the Styrofoam turkey.

These days, people are decorating their homes with more subtle hues. That means a few simple changes to the dining room can call out "Thanksgiving" without having to plant the ten year old stuffed turkey scene on the table as a centerpiece. Starting with an array of muted browns and oranges for you table setting will be enough to remind everyone why they are gathered around the table. This years, try a simple but elegant fall flower arrangement as your centerpiece. Using off colored hues throughout the remainder of your home accents will give the home that autumn glazed look with an especially subtle appearance that can be appreciated by everyone. Brass home accents can set off the orange hues and the browns with a little flair. Of course, don't overdue the drab colors. Adding reds and burgundies will help tie it all in together.

When choosing home accents remember to keep it simple. If you're going to use coverings on your end tables, and you choose a typically fall color, adding a brass or even a bronze statue, bells, or other decorative pieces that whisper the holiday season rather than screaming it you can usually draw it all together with a nice even red.

Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season for most people. About 30% of all Americans use Thanksgiving Day to ready themselves for the Christmas season. However, people are paying more attention to fall décor before blending their Thanksgiving decorating with Christmas and Holiday decorating. Using auburns and reds make an excellent lead in for the blended look.

Using home accents in brass and gold, even bronze, can ease into any holiday décor. By adding just a few new brass or gold wall hangings, almost any room in the house can become a myriad of Thanksgiving and Holiday blend, which can be perfect for the anxious holiday individual who marks their season's start with the culmination of Thanksgiving. With a little preplanning, the holiday décor from Thanksgiving can blend right into the Holiday season with only a few minor changes.

Wall hangings and home accents can be used in any number of rooms to draw attention to the finer points of a room. If you create a beautiful ensemble in one corner, using an illustrious wall hanging just off to the side or even right above it, they eye will naturally follow the rhythm of the hanging directly to the ensemble. In many cases, using decoration to guide the eyes of the visitors to the better parts of the room is as simple as drawing attention to it.

Thanksgiving decorating is a great time to delve into candles of all types. Candles in wall scones can accentuate a busy room just as easily as they can stand alone along a hallway or a staircase. Candles create that perfect holiday ambiance that we all want to share in, they light up a room with more than just a pleasant aroma.
