Decorate and give thanks!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it is time to start preparing! Even though you're focused on the menu right now, don't forget about special decorative touches to make your home even more warm and welcoming for guests. Below are several ideas we loved that are easy for anyone to recreate!

Greet family and friends with a welcoming door step. Try this unconventional pine cone wreath or assortment of pumpkin-potters to add a festive fall touch.

For the wreath, collect several pine cones from your yard (borrow some from your neighbors if you need to!), tie a thick ribbon around the ends of each cone and hang. It is that simple! The pumpkin-potters are great indoors or out. Now that Halloween is over, you will find a variety of pumpkins on sale. Have fun carving, then display!

Inside on the mantle, paint your pumpkins white and metallic or cover vases in fall-inspired tissue for a nontraditional fireplace.

At the table, these natural and rustic centerpieces will impress any guest.

Fill a glass vase with acorns or leaves from outside to create a beautiful, DIY centerpiece. Tying veggies around a candle with twine or ribbon is simple, yet stunning. (images via Pottery Barn and All*You)

Show your guests you are thankful for them by leaving everyone a small take-away at their place setting. Whether it is for decoration or not, your guests will appreciate their personalized seat!

Fun, metallic name markers and embroidered napkins are a great way to let your guests know you are thankful for them!
