Thanksgiving is a holiday that is often passed over in the decorating arena as we move from Halloween directly into the Christmas season.
Sure, most of us celebrate Thanksgiving; turkeys are purchased and roasted, pumpkin pies are baked and consumed, cranberry sauce is prepared and served and rolls are devoured by the dozens.
We celebrate this holiday with friends and family. It is one of the most traveled holidays of the year. And yet, many times we decorate for Halloween and then go straight into Christmas decorating.
Decorating for this holiday does not have to be elaborate to have an impact. Thanksgiving does not require a tree or ornaments. It does not necessitate going to the store and purchasing copious amounts of seasonal accoutrements. However, adding a few items to our home decorating to signify the importance and advent of Thanksgiving will help to facilitate a more memorable holiday.
One of the easiest ways to decorate during this time is by using traditional fall colors. Fall colors include burnt orange, mustard yellow, olive green and rust red. Browns and other earthy and harvest hued colors all have their place in fall’s color palette. A simple way to add Thanksgiving flair to your home decorating is with a fall hued rug. Adding a rich orange or red rug to your living room will help facilitate your Thanksgiving decorating.
