Do It Yourself Thanksgiving Decor

Home & Family

Hosting a large Thanksgiving feast is one of the perks of owning a new home with spacious chef inspired kitchen. And while the turkey, trimmings and hand pinched pies are definitely the main event, it’s always nice to wow your guests with autumn harvest décor. To help get you started we’ve gathered a few of our favourite décor ideas for Thanksgiving. We hope you have a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving weekend surrounded by family and friends!

A Warm Welcome. Greet your guests at the door with a seasonal welcome mat. We love this #gobblegobble mat on Etsy. Or get crafty and purchase a plain mat and some paint to make your own.

Painted Pumpkins. Pick up some glitter, paint and pumpkins - in varying shapes and sizes – to create a pretty fall display on your front porch. Go for glamour and glitz and design a monogramed pumpkin, or have the kids help out for a more ‘casual’ look.

Front Door Décor. We love harvest wreaths of all varieties. Make your own using brightly coloured faux leaves and fruit or from burlap ribbons. Another unique option is to create oversized ‘give thanks’ door tags.

Freestanding Arrangements. Harness your inner florist and bring the beauty of autumn inside. Gather tall twigs and purchase gold, burnt orange, crimson and burgundy faux leaves. Arrange in a brushed metal vase and scatter some pint size pumpkins.
