Guest Post : Inspired Thanksgiving Decor
Hi, I'm Susi and I can usually be found blogging about light fixtures of all kinds or lighting ideas and trends for Arcadian Lighting. I love getting out and visiting blogs as a guest blogger, and I especially love visiting crafty blogs like The Girl is Craftee. My post today is about inspired Thanksgiving décor that can be done last minute. I hope you enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving!
This modern style dining room has some charming ideas for inspired Thanksgiving decor. DIY antler trophies made from branches give the room a chic harvest feeling. A table lamp on the buffet provides ambient light for making drinks or serving food.
This Thanksgiving table celebrates the fall season in a non-traditional color palette of blue and red. The branches with colorful acorns tie in with the harvest theme of the holiday.
Create seasonal art for the dining room to set the tone for the holiday. A large scale leaf painting or a collage of fall colors will add color and create a festive mood for the big meal. The holiday color palette plays off the neutral tone of the lovely drum pendant light over the table and works well to tie the entire room together.
Combining the design craze for charming birds with Thanksgiving, this family of turkeys is a lovely addition to a mantle or a buffet table. I love the mix of textures and the feathers.
Incorporating words of thanks into a Thanksgiving vignette on a mantle or table is a charming way to bring the meaning of the holiday to life. Painted miniature pumpkins or a small banner of pennants are easy DIY projects.
What a charming and heartfelt addition to a Thanksgiving décor: the thankful tree! Each leaf is filled with a message of gratitude.
These DIY corn husk pom poms make a lovely addition to the dining room hanging light fixture. A garland of them would also be festive by the mantle or in the foyer.
For an inspired Thanksgiving table décor, look to the menu. Incorporating elements of the meal as décor, like these cranberries, is a lovely way to use what you have on hand. Decorating for the holidays doesn't have to be stressful if you use these quick, creative ideas. Visit Arcadian Lighting's blog for fresh design ideas every day! (Images: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
