TGIF, friends! Sorry I’ve been so absent lately! Life calls! However, I want to share with you a few ideas for decorating for Thanksgiving. Come check out my Thanksgiving decorations!
Last year I commissioned my niece to make this big sign for me. I saw the quote probably 20 years ago in my Traditional Home magazine and was featured in Garrison Keillor”s beautiful home. He had the quote painted on his dining room wall. That’s cool and all, but I like to change things up too much to have something so permanent. So, I decided to make it into a sign! This year I added a garland I had on hand and hung it with a command strip with a hook in the upper left corner. Then I just tucked some of the leaves under the frame on the top right and on the left side so it would stay in place. (You could use more command strips but I didn’t need to.) I had some pheasant feathers that my husband brought back from hunting a few years ago and tucked them into the garland. I’m loving the asymmetrical vibe!
I put my ruffled table cloth on the table for softness.
For my centerpiece I used a large pedestal and a grapevine wreath with berries and a colorful bow. On top of the pedestal and wreath I added this large rooster. I bought him from Williams-Sonoma many years ago. Simple, right?
For the sideboard, I piled the large urn with velvet pumpkins and tucked in a few fall picks. The greenery around the edges is actually a garland that I wrapped around the edges. This look will carry us through until our Thanksgiving dinner and will be easy to change out for Christmas. This too would make a pretty centerpiece for a table!
Here’s another shot of the sideboard and sign. I think after Thanksgiving I’ll replace the sign with a new mirror I have in my stash. I’m thinking of painting it black for a splash of drama on this wall. It’s currently a gold-ish color. We’ll see!
Well, I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! Check back in next week when I’ll share with you a new favorite beef recipe! It makes a ton and is a crowd pleaser!!!! Until next time, love and hugs! xoxo Dell
