Nothing says Thanksgiving like grateful sentiments, harvest themes, and his and her scarecrows. Whether you usually host a large family gathering for the November holiday or keep it small, there are some easy ways to add some cozy to your home, without the need of a designer. Check out how this local homeowner created a cozy oasis for the Thanksgiving holiday, one that can be enjoyed throughout the fall season.
It’s Harvest Time (No Crops Needed)!
Got a window box with flowers that peaked in late summer? “Plant” some pumpkins for an adorable pumpkin patch right outside your window.
Outdoor decorations aren’t just for Christmas. Stage an area in a plant bed with scarecrows, corn cobs, and pumpkins for instant curb appeal that will rival any twinkling light display.
Greet Them At The Door
Hanging a fall wreath on the front door is a simple way to offer a warm welcome to all who enter while providing a sneak peek of the harvest homecoming that awaits inside. Fall colored ribbon, leaves, or dried stems are a great way to turn a traditional wreath into a rustic showstopper. If you like wreaths, don’t stop at the front door. Hang one on a mirror or wall to add a boost to your interior decor.
Makeover Your Mantle
With the right decor, a styled mantle can become the focal point of a room, garnering attention and appreciation. Decorative pumpkins, a seasonal lantern topper, and fall leaves give this mantle a warm, cozy vibe. The addition of candles (real or battery-operated) provides soft light, enhancing the room’s ambiance.
Give Existing Decor A Seasonal Splash
Transition artificial plants from summer to fall with the addition of a bow or fall accessory.
Transform an underutilized corner of your home into an eye-catching space with the addition of a pumpkin or a few acorns.
Decorational sitters are perfect for those hard to decorate areas in your home, such as a bathroom shelf. Nestled beneath essentials like Q-tips and cotton balls, this sunflower sitter with fall ribbon adds just the right amount of seasonal swag to this bathroom.
Add Some Cozy With Texture
Seasonal throw pillows can really make a statement while adding some soft and cozy to any chair, bench, or couch.
Create visual interest with pumpkins of various colors and textures. The buffalo check and fuzzy green pumpkins are fun and give this coffee table a boost of sophistication and style.
Kind Words Are Always On Trend
Grateful sentiments never go out of style, whether spoken or on display on a foyer table or wall. Sprinkle a few throughout your home for a nice reminder of what Thanksgiving is really about. You and your guests will be grateful you did.
