The key is to focus on the spaces around your home where you can create the biggest visual impact with your Thanksgiving decor. One of them is your front door and entryway, where beautiful Thanksgiving wreaths and garlands naturally land themselves. This is the first thing your guests will see, and it’ll create an instant holiday mood when they arrive.

You can easily customize an existing wreath or garland by adding such quintessential harvest-themed elements as squash, autumn-colored leaves and luxurious ribbons. If you have a double front door, consider hanging matching wreaths on each of the doors. If your porch is decorated with potted plants, you can give them a Thanksgiving update by adding small pumpkins and pinecones inside. Tie a big, luscious bow around the pots and place candles on the steps.  In no time at all, your porch and front door are ready to greet your guests with a festive spirit!

Your fireplace is an ultimate gathering space during the holidays, and it’s a perfect opportunity for last minute Thanksgiving decoration. A wreath or garland works well on top of your mantel… consider bringing in foliage from outside to create your garland! Give this space an even warmer and cozier atmosphere with the soft glow of votive candles. For a touch of glam, add metallic touches and have fun mixing your metal finishes in whatever combinations speak to you!

And, Fabulistas, let’s not forget about your Thanksgiving table where you’ll serve the holiday feast that your friends and family will remember. Make it even more memorable with the last minute addition of small pumpkins or squash in a variety of sizes and colors.. They’re whimsical and you can customize them with your guests’ initials to take home. Small bouquets of foliage paired with votive candles are big on style when placed in the center of your dining table.
