Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for our good fortune. The holiday brings families together for sharing a feast of bountiful delights and the feelings of connectedness. The decorations should accent and celebrate this feeling. I have put together some fresh ideas of how to make your Thanksgiving moment a true celebration to remember.
Fun With Fall Design Elements
Nature is the best decoration for any occasion, especially if it’s Thanksgiving – the holiday that is most connected with nature. Create your own landscape by bringing beautiful colors of fall from outside to your family table. Rich reds, deep ambers, and vibrant browns are obvious choices for fall decor, but dimensional greens and whites fit in perfectly, and provide a nice alternative to classic fall colors.
Gather fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs from your own garden, farmer’s market or even a nursery. Create fun centerpieces with a mix of these items including gourds, pumpkins, acorns, pinecones, seeds or fruit slices. You can put them into simple bowls, on wood pieces, on the table itself or on the table runner.
Take branches, berries or tiny pumpkins to accent a place card. Add a cozy touch with some candles and stylish napkins and enjoy giving thanks in a simple and natural style!
How To Embellish The Table
Besides going natural, there are many other techniques to jazz up the table or keep it simple to portray an elegant and chic design.
It can be interesting to combine a fun tablecloth with elegant tableware.
Try a layered look with plates featuring different finishes, colors or textures.
Give a contemporary twist to the décor by using contrasting colors.
A rustic and complex option with plenty of different textures and shades.
Try staying within a color palette and use the same two or three shades maximum.
A fun option would be to use bold colors, not necessarily the traditional ones.
