Simple Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

I'm so happy it's autumn because I get to share with you a few simple Thanksgiving decor ideas. If you are hosting Thanksgiving this year and are scared to take design risks use this holiday to get creative with dressing your table and shelves with pretty decor. They're only going to be out for a little bit of time so get creative and have fun. These simple Thanksgiving decor ideas can work for a large dinner party or even just for two.  Be fearless and just try it.  You can't go wrong because it's your home and there is no right or wrong.

I love to make a seasonal bouquet of somethingšŸ˜€ It could be faux or real and it's easy to do. Every year I come up with something different. One year I made an arrangement with dried leaves in a DIY tin can vase.  As an alternative, I like to use fruit centerpieces. They are pretty and edible and what's not to love about that!  


It's so much fun to explore putting branches, plants, candles, and food, in the middle of the table. You're going to have to set your table so why not have fun with the items you are selecting. Start playing by getting a tablecloth in a pretty pattern or one with texture. Buy beautiful dishware and glassware and actually use them.  Or bring out those inherited pieces which I think are always the best.

Make your shelves festive by creating small arrangements with things found in nature.  Look for pine cones, branches, and acorns, and have fun displaying them to make your home warm and cozy.  Stack dishware and have fun styling up a pretty drink station.

This autumn has been unusually warm and the oregano is still growing in our garden.  I like to display fresh herbs on the kitchen counter because for me, this makes cooking for Thanksgiving so much more fun.

Place settings made by hand represent love and are a simple way to add that decorative touch to the dining table.

During the holidays I remember when I was a child my parents would display pistachio nuts in a pretty container on the coffee table. They were red back then and the red dye would get on my fingers and I just thought that was so much fun. Now I use this simple decor idea in my own home but without the red dye.
