Simple Ways to Decorate Your Home for Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day is a custom which was first declared as "a day of public thanksgiving and prayer". Every year Americans celebrate it to pay gratitude for love of family, gifts experienced in their lives and rich harvest. The themes of love and harvest are the most important in Thanksgiving Day interior decoration. They are as much a tradition as a turkey cooked this day.
Same as for outdoor Thanksgiving decorations, the indoor decorations pay tribute to fall and rich harvest. The others are symbols of the feast shared between Native Americans and Pilgrims. Some of them are extravagant and costly, the others are simple and inexpensive. Their prices vary from $10 to $100 and even more.
Those who do not want to buy them in the stores, use homemade decorations that add a home interior a personal touch. So, what are centerpieces of Thanksgiving interior decor?
They are napkins and a tablecloth in fall color scheme. Wreaths with candles are traditionally popular, as well as candles on the festive table. The turkey silhouette decoration are nice for dinner table, or just little ones around the living room. Ears of native corn, small pumpkins and gourds arranged in a basket which is also filled with fallen leaves are also among Thanksgiving centerpieces.
A glass bowl can be used instead of the basket and filled with various natural items. For example, pinecone, fall leaves, nuts and acorns can be layered in it. All these decorating ideas are both creative and inexpensive. They help the owners of the house surprise their guest not only with delicious turkey, but with a festive atmosphere.
In fact, there is plenty of choices to create the fall themed interior. Candle or fruit decorations are only a few of them. Falling leaves can be made of plastic, metal or paper and sprayed with paint. Stuck to the walls, lamp shades, mirrors or curtains these falling leaves also help to create Thanksgiving atmosphere in the home, as well as flower decorations. By the way, flowers and baskets with vegetables can be used as exterior decorations, too.
Finally, Thanksgiving chain decorations, folding turkey napkins and designer mats can also add the personal touch to the festive interior design.
