Now that fall has been in full swing for a couple of months you might only need to add a few key touches to be ready for the Thanksgiving holiday. Often times decorating for the Thanksgiving holiday is skipped as people jump right from Halloween to Christmas. But if you are hosting the turkey dinner this year, or you simply love this holiday, you might want to add a few more elements to make your home more festive. Here are some tips to make your KB Home Thanksgiving ready:
Change Out the Fabric
If your home decor is naturally bright and cheery you will want to switch out pillows and tablecloths for richer deeper colors that reflect the cooler weather and changing leaves. Finding fabrics that have twigs or falling leaves are ideal. Also, having thicker fabrics with texture help reflect this time of year.
Setting the stage for your Thanksgiving meal with autumn color and scented candles, with accents of pumpkin, and apples, gives a very festive and rustic feel to the atmosphere. Think of things that remind you of fall and add an element of surprise to the spread, like old books, that will enhance the interest of your table centerpiece.
Creating a Thanksgiving fireplace mantel can be just the right touch to add to the festivities of the season. Think of combinations of reclaimed wood, candles, a wreath, and fall colored ribbons. You can add a family photo from a past Thanksgiving dinner in a rustic frame. Also, decorate around the fireplace with a basket full of wood, tied with a rope, an old vintage chair with a warm knit blanket thrown over the back.
Adding a wreath to any door is inviting. A Thanksgiving wreath can be as simple as a grapevine wreath with a rich colored fall bow. You can also customize the wreath with acorns and leaves. Make sure if you have a double front door to add a wreath on each side. Don’t hang your wreath too high, make sure it is at or just above eye level. Adding pumpkins to the porch with some straw and vintage buckets could add the extra coziness that your kb home needs for Thanksgiving.
