Easy Ideas for a Festive Thanksgiving

It’s not too late to think about adding a little fall flair to your Thanksgiving table.  Here some easy and inexpensive, last minute ideas.

Add color and style to your table using a table runner or place mats in red or orange.  Then use faux leaves and berries to create an inviting tablescape.

Create the perfect fall buffet by placing your food trays on top of pumpkins!  Or mix in some smaller pumpkins and gourds in and around your buffet.

Here’s a display that’s easy and very inexpensive. Take bottles or jars, and place the letters “T-H-A-N-K-S” on them.  (You could even recycle some mayonnaise or jelly jars and just shake up a little pain inside to add color.) Then place straw, fall flowers, leaves, corn husks, or anything else you can think of in each one.

The easiest thing you can do to add color and flair to any table is to add a bouquet of flowers.  Faux will do, but fresh is said to be the way to go if you really want to breathe life into your room.  And the best part is that the local grocer’s and farmer’s markets will have any leftover fall inventory on sale the week of Thanksgiving!
And you can always count on candles to add color and a hint of warmth of and coziness to any room.

And how about adding something fun for this kids?  It just takes a few simple ingredients to make this cute turkey that also doubles as a holder for appetizer kabobs!
