Thanksgiving: More than Just a Big Feast

•  thanksgiving

The fourth Thursday of November is less than a week away, meaning that it’s time to think about Thanksgiving. How can you make this holiday unforgettable? How can you save some cash for Black Friday and Cyber Monday? If all these questions still keep you awake at night, just relax and read on!

Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving

Whether it’s that you don’t have an extended family full of drama, or you just want to make this day even more special, rest assured – there are plenty of options to choose from. For example, since there are a lot of places that benefit from someone coming to help deliver meals, why not give a hand? Alternatively, you can volunteer to help the less fortunate – help families in food preparation or even invite a lonely friend over for Thanksgiving. To bring an element of fun into your celebration, have a contest with friends to shape a turkey out of non-turkey things. If you are dreaming about a relaxed day off, but don’t want to compromise on the dinner, throw a potluck – make a turkey and ask everyone to bring the sides.

Traditional Strategy

If you don’t want to go the extra mile with your setting and are looking just to end up with something autumn-inspired, look no further than our gingham tablecloth or raffia fabric bolt to lay the foundation. To accommodate each guest, pull out our gold charger plates and simple ivory cloth napkins adorned with our fern leaves. For the centerpiece, feel free to use pumpkins, pine cones, acorns, apples, or whatever the fall season has to offer. Finish everything off with our ivory votive candles in our gold holders and don’t forget about our fall leaf garland.

Muted Setup

If you are not interested in the traditional color palette, don’t suppress that itch to stand out! For instance, this muted fall tablescape will allow you stay within budget and make your event stand out from the rest. To recreate the look, you’ll need our burlap table runner, plain white plates with wooden chargers, ivory cloth napkins with our vintage copper napkin rings, ivory votives perched on our wood stump holders, mason jars, and a rustic wooden box filled with a few white pumpkins of different sizes, greenery, and several pine cones.

A Pop of Unexpected Color

Can’t live without a dose of color but need something other than traditional reds, oranges, and yellows? Make no mistake, you’ll jump for joy at this easy ombre setup. For this stunning display, you’ll need our white polyester tablecloth, white plates, clear glasses, pink napkins, white taper candles in gold holders, and multiple pumpkins painted all shades of pink and yellow. Alternatively, you can skip the pumpkin part and make a table runner from our balloons of different sizes, adorned with our fern leaves.

Thankful Tree

Whatever table ensemble you decide on, your Thanksgiving décor will be incomplete without the Gratitude Tree – a perfect centerpiece and a nice way to focus on what you are grateful for. When it comes to a Gratitude tree anything will work, because it is your own tree. For the foundation, you can use real branches, our LED branches, or a manzanita tree. You’ll also need a mason jar for the vase, pine cones for the base, a jute string, a copper wire, and plenty of colorful paper scraps for the leaves. Place pine cones in the jar and wrap the wire around it. Place the branches. In the end, punch tiny holes in your paper leaves so that your guests can hang them up on the tree.

Last but not least, there’s no wrong way to say “thank you” to the Universe for everything you have.
