Thanksgiving Decor

I think that Thanksgiving Decor should be easy and natural and not overlooked just because Christmas is right around the corner. A simple wreath, like the one above from Williams Sonoma, made of bay leaves, looks great hanging on the front door. Then you can add a bright red bow in December. I just ordered a square boxwood wreath, like the one below, from Mistletoe Meadows, a tree farm in western North Carolina. If you're local, they set up a lot each year in Olmstead Village.

I also love to keep the pumpkins and gourds out as a centerpiece through November. Martha spray painted these miniature pumpkins gold which is pretty, especially with blue!

And I love to get Janie excited and involved. These place mats from Pottery Barn Kids are adorable and the felt leaf garland would be cute hung around the kitchen. I might try to make my own garland from this picture :) we'll see! Happy Decorating and may we all have thankful hearts this season.
