Many of the blogs I read (of which there are many!) have been working on Thanksgiving decorations for weeks. I don’t traditionally host Thanksgiving at my house so I hadn’t really bothered to decorate anything! This year, we are hosting a very small Thanksgiving meal at our house and so I am doing very small things to decorate our house for the occasion.
I love the idea of using natural and/or food items as part of decorations. I had an empty vase hanging around and so, on a recent grocery store trip, I grabbed some food to use in it. Using split peas, white beans and kidney beans, I simply layered them all in the vase for a simply decoration.
Once the vase was done, I turned my attention towards the table. I had picked up some burlap garland so I figured I would incorporate that into my table decoration.
It was much narrower than I expected once I opened it. No worries though because I just made two separate panels and overlapped them a little on the table.
I’ve had a fall themed arrangement on the table for awhile and I thought it still went pretty well. So, I just placed it right back on the table.
So, there you have the beginnings of our Thanksgiving preparations. H started setting the table over the weekend by placing every spoon we own out on top of paper towels. She was so excited so I think I’ll put her to use when the dishes are ready to come out. The turkey and ham were bought over the weekend so we aren’t too far away from our big Holiday meal.
