in a season of beauty and bounty, Thanksgiving decorations witness
the brilliant Fall shades of red, orange, brown, golden and amber.
It would indeed be unwise to think that Thanksgiving decorations
are limited to the theme of turkeys and Pilgrims and cornucopias.
While these are perfectly there and make wonderful decorations on
Thanksgiving, you can touch up your Thanksgiving dιcor with the
many beauties that Autumn offers. You can set up a bright and warm
decoration with the Autumn leaves, flowers, pumpkins,
harvest-colored table spreads or curtains, nuts, acorns, berries
and more. Now here are some ideas for your Thanksgiving
decorations which might initiate the creative genius in you:
Pumpkins halved, hollowed-out and filled with fruits would make a
wonderful centerpiece and are sure to woo your folks' most ardent
attention on Thanksgiving.
You can fringe the window sills or the doorway with miniature
gourds and pumpkins. Orange, green and white pumpkins when
arranged in a row make a good show of Thanksgiving decorations.
Thanksgiving wreaths are known to be very good decorations
too. This looks festive when hung at the entrance and is warm
enough to welcome your friends and folks heartily in. Create your
wreath as creatively as you can. Use flowers, leaves, berries etc
to make a bountiful Thanksgiving coronal.
Streamers made with alternating Fall leaves and flowers add a
special touch to any Thanksgiving decoration if hung or placed
artistically on table-tops or ceilings.
For the tapestry and upholstery, it's always good to stick to
the Autumn shades. And silk fabrics are better choices when it's a
Thanksgiving decoration in agenda. So choose burnt orange curtains
with a silk finish, have an amber-colored table linen or spread
out a yellow-ochre carpet to effuse the season's brilliance.
Prepare wheat sheaves tied up with orange silk ribbons and
place them at the corners of your room on Thanksgiving to give a
rustic flavor to your Thanksgiving decorations.
A cornucopia placed on the mantle is a warm thought as always.
But how about complementing the warmth with a bit of shine and
sparkle ? Place a few long slender candles in a cluster near the
cornucopia and watch how it enhances your Thanksgiving
decorations. You can also strew a few nuts and acorns sporadically
around the candles.
For the Thanksgiving table, prepare Thanksgiving-themed
table-mats and napkins with handmade papers. Draw your own designs
on them or just color them with the vibrant Fall shades.
A pillar candle spiraled with a golden ribbon and placed right
at the middle of the Thanksgiving table would look just fine,
isn't it ? You can make this piece look more elegant by setting a
bunch of cranberries or a few pinecones at its base. And with this
wonderful Thanksgiving decoration, you can't help feel warm and
snug all over when the turkey sizzles in its radiance !
Decorations and decorative ideas are galore when it comes to
this beautiful holiday of Thanksgiving. Anything makes good
Thanksgiving decorations if put up with a dash of creativity. Even
dry Autumn leaves, twigs, sticks and branches look good indoors if
the creative genius in you is at liberty. So let loose the best
bit in you and sweep over your friends, folks and beloved with
your Thanksgiving decorations !
