Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and feasting. But it’s also about decorating! How to decorate for Thanksgiving? Here are some of your favorite Thanksgiving-themed ideas to help you make the most of your holiday table this year.
Dried floral wreath
To make a dried floral wreath, you will need:
- Dried flowers
- Styrofoam wreath form
- Floral wire and glue gun (optional)
To begin with, fill the bottom of your styrofoam ring with dried flowers. You can use any kind of dried flowers you like—if it’s not Thanksgiving, it’s recommended going with roses or other red flowers. If it is Thanksgiving, though, go crazy!
Add gingham ribbon and lots of pine cones too! Once you’re done filling in all your flower arrangements on top of one another, wrap some floral wire around the entire thing so that it looks neat and put on some fake leaves if you want. Then just put it on your door or hang up by stringing a ribbon through holes in each side of the decorative plastic cap for easy access when guests come over during dinner time.
A leaf vignette is a fun way to add a little something extra to your Thanksgiving table. If you have leaflets available, they’re a no-brainer option. Just be sure to use different colors and textures, so your tablescape doesn’t look like they were plucked straight from the forest floor.
You also want to ensure that the leaves aren’t too big or small—the last thing you want is for them to overpower your other decorations!
You can use various materials for this project: fresh ferns, dried grasses and flowers—or even pine cones! To keep things simple and mess-free, try placing them in a vase or basket (like a pie plate) instead of directly on your tablecloth.
According to a party supply expert Party City, “Explore Thanksgiving decorations like banners, signs, and centerpieces for your home, event, or the classroom.”
Cedar and burlap runner
- Cedar shavings
- Hot glue gun
Instructions: Cut out a square of burlap and then glue it to the floor. Sprinkle cedar shavings on top of the burlap, and enjoy your holiday season with a warm reminder of what you’re thankful for!
Candied pecan topiary
- 2 cups pecans
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon water
- Preheat the oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the pecans out on the cookie sheet in an even layer, then roast them in the oven until they’re fragrant, about 7 minutes; you’ll know they’re done when their color deepens slightly and you can smell them roasting from across your kitchen!
