Most of us faithfully follow tradition and recreate the same Thanksgiving menu and decoration every year. Though traditions are important, don’t let your creativity and imagination take a back seat. This year delight your dinner guests with inviting, unique Fall scenes throughout the house. And don’t worry, we’re here to assist and share ideas to decorate for Thanksgiving this year. The many Thanksgiving home décor options at JCPenney are easy to use around the house, cost-effective, and, most importantly, stylish.
A Gratitude Table at the Entryway
Placing a seat or a bench by the front door makes a home look more inviting and can be used by guests to pull on boots. Add a few throw pillows on the seat or bench to make the space feel cozier and more seasonal. You can keep your entry looking polished with a season-inspired doormat or area rug. Once guests walk in, welcome them with a minimalist Thanksgiving display of harvest wreath or garland, an assortment of mercury glass pumpkins, and colorful paper leaves on which they can write a note of what they are grateful for.
Chanel a Natural Aesthetic
There’s no imperative to chase trends every time you are looking for ideas to decorate the Thanksgiving table. Focus on the simplicity and timelessness of the holiday. A linen tablecloth, floral arrangement, clear glass pumpkins, and a candle holder set filled with tealight candles will be ideal. You can also consider a fabric gnome or assorted pumpkins to lend a more cheerful vibe to the home.
Gorgeous Color Contrasts
Another chic Thanksgiving home makeover is the introduction of contrasting hues to the setting. A mix of a wreath with white pumpkins, pinewood lanterns, and white linens is equal parts sophisticated and festive. Place fresh eucalyptus branches and some kumquats on autumnal table linens to prevent the monochrome palette from feeling cold and an aromatic diffuser for pleasant freshness around the house.
An Al Fresco Supper
If your Thanksgiving party is outdoors, a sophisticated Fall harvest table is the perfect investment. And how to decorate for Thanksgiving? Adorn the table with Thanksgiving dinnerware, LED candles, and a crystal vase filled with earthy fall decorative pumpkin and pinecone vase fillers that brings indoor elegance to the outdoors. Fill throw pillows in bright colors around the seating space as they welcome a boost of color and seasonal charm.
Dedicate a corner of your house or patio to Thanksgiving desserts. You can start with a sideboard requesting friends and family to place the desserts and pies they bought on the cake stands and trays provided at the dessert bar. The best part? You don’t have to worry about how to decorate this Thanksgiving table. Place a wire pumpkin tabletop décor or pumpkin and Pampas grass floral arrangement, some fabric genomes, and cute animal figurines, and you’re good to go!
