Midwest Living suggests creating a harvest mantel in your living room in order to serve as at Thanksgiving-themed focal point for your event. This decorative mantle display will consist of inexpensive melamine plates that will be attached to your wall with adhesive disc hangers. You can also place a casual arrangement of gourds and pumpkins between bundles of dry wheat to improve on the festive look.
You should spend considerable time planning and putting together your table displays before you host Thanksgiving dinner, but you don’t have to go the traditional cornucopia route. There are a variety of creative ways you can put together a centerpiece. If you’re hoping to keep things casual, place a cheese board with fruit in the center of the table to serve as pre-feast snacking station. If you will be using flowers, choose fall colors like olives, reds, purples, and gold to create your arrangement. You can also add a more intimate flair to your centerpiece by placing glimmering tea light candles around your arrangement.
