It will serve as a nice reminder to consistently be thankful for what you have!
- Create your own wreath. You can get creative with what to include on your Thanksgiving wreath – everything from leaves to gourds to fake fruits! A fall-themed wreath is a great statement piece for your front door and a wonderful way to provide a warm welcome to your guests.
- Put together a metallic leaf centerpiece. Grab a basket and cover some fake fruits with sheets of copper for a metallic-themed centerpiece. You can surround these shiny fruits with fake, colorful fall leaves to add a spark of color to your Thanksgiving table.
- Utilize kid-friendly placemats. If you’ll be having children at your Thanksgiving table, grab some construction paper and create kid-friendly placemats! This will make their meal experience easier and more fun for them. Place flowers in fall-themed mason jars. Find some fall-themed mason jars and utilize them as small vases for flowers!
