Perfect Thanksgiving Table

We start off where we absolutely need to and if you have time for pretty much nothing else, then make the Thanksgiving table the priority for the next few days. This is the heart and soul of the evening (for most of us at least) and the perfect Thanksgiving dinner needs a backdrop that matches its festive sumptuousness! Thanksgiving tables can embrace different styles; from the extravagant and opulent to the understated and the minimal. Pick a color this year and make it the central focus of the decorating theme. It can be anything from trendy and regal purple to white and gold. You can even go down a more rustic route or even take the Thanksgiving table outdoors for a magical evening.

Fall Themed Crafts

Thanksgiving need not be a time where it is purely DIY creations and décor pieces with ‘Thanksgiving vibe’ that take over. You can instead create a wonderful and festive backdrop with some of the fall-inspired DIY that you might have made much earlier by giving them a little upgrade. Take for instance the Pumpkin Votive Candle Holders or the scented pine cones; a couple of ideas that you can bring to life in barely an hour or so and without much work at all. They stay relevant even as winter sets in and you need not move them out by Friday. Think a fusion of fall and winter charm while making these smart DIYs

Wreaths, Garlands and Sign Boards

No festive occasion is really complete without at least a wreath or a banner that tells everyone that the holiday is just around the corner. The Thanksgiving ‘Gobble Gobble’ wreath idea is something that puts a smile on everyone’s face while the colorful and vibrant Turkey Tulie wreath is just super-easy to craft. A large wooden signboard that says ‘be thankful’ feels even more impressive when you add neon lighting to it while garlands and banners with fall leaves fit into any Thanksgiving setting with ease.
