Have you done any decorating for the big Thanksgiving meal? If you’re hosting the dinner, you might want to add a bit of Thanksgiving flair to your home. Here are some simple ways of adding a big of holiday cheer to your home.
Get a Thanksgiving centerpiece. The meal is the center of the holiday, after all, so you want your table to look great. A centerpiece for Thanksgiving can come in many forms. Pumpkins, gourds, candles, fall flowers, a ceramic turkey, pilgrims…there are many options out there. Find something that fits nicely on your table. If your table is small, go with something simple so you’ll have plenty of room for food.
Don’t forget the Thanksgiving linens: a tablecloth and napkins are a must-have for a nice meal, so you might as well make them decorative. You can go with a solid fall color (orange, red, brown) or pick something with turkeys or other Thanksgiving images. Napkin rings are another nice accessory that can add to your décor.
The real treat at Thanksgiving is the meal, of course, so add a bit of decoration to your dishes. Use decorative platters and bowls or ones that match your tablecloth. Even dishes with a fall color pattern on them can help accent the meal and bring a cohesion to your overall décor.
These are just a few simple things to make Thanksgiving decorating quick and easy. There’s a lot more you can do, of course. You can pick up some small turkey and pilgrim figures, add a fall wreath to your front door, or find some other fall items to place around your home. How much you do is all up to you. Get creative, and make your Thanksgiving decorations something special for your guests to enjoy.

I adore the simplicity of these hand stenciled bottles full of wheat stalks because it incorporates reuse, and adds warmth with texture and color to the room.
Even if you bake your desserts from scratch these vintage looking cans make perfect containers for simple DIY arrangements. Multiple containers of the same size creates a nice focal point for all your guests at a long, narrow table.
I am in love with all the DIY ideas out there but tend to gravitate towards wedding designs, probably because I see so many beautiful photos showcasing weddings every day. I find it leaves my decorating options open and I always throw a little tribute in to celebrate that particular holiday. The bright, cheerful palette from this wedding translates for any festive event and the grass runner is just brilliant.
At Freytag’s we love to see you in our shop! If you select individual blooms that you arrange yourself we give you 1/2 off, really boosting that DIY budget! Something as easy as these mixed goblets with blooms and candles can dress a buffet, dessert or even dining table up for any occasion.
…a truly INSPIRED idea from One Fine Day Events in Lake Tahoe:
For Thanksgiving I would try oranges or tangerine under the glass, maybe even apples or pomegranates. I have the perfect desk with a glass top that already doubles as a serving station…
Use risers not the fruit to support the glass to avoid a disaster!

Thanksgiving is a great time to show friends and family how much you love them with a beautiful fall centerpiece or fall flower arrangement.
A thanksgiving centerpiece is a wonderful way to finish off your dining table for your Thanksgiving feast. A beautiful fall arrangement is a great way to say thank you to a friend whoÃ‚Â’s been there for you all year. A fall plant is a great gift that keeps on giving.
DonÃ‚Â’t forget Christmas is sneaking up on us quickly and Poinsettias will be here soon too. Stay tuned.
