For as long as I can remember, Thanksgiving has been one of my favorite holidays. When I lived in Jersey, it had a lot to do with a big football tradition in my town, but since I’ve moved to Tennessee, I still love it. And since Michael and I have lived in our house, Turkey Day has been the one holiday we’ve really “owned”, so I tend to get pretty into it. This year, thanks to my new-found obsession with Pinterest, I have some great ideas in store for our families. Here is some of my decor inspiration…
1. Turkey Day Tablescape — I absolutely adore this table design by Shindig Parties TO GO, especially that burlap and corn husk runner (yup, you heard that right), which Amanda teaches you how to create over on her blog. I definitely may need to take some extra burlap I have around the house and try to recreate it!
2. Thankful Tree — I’m loving the idea of incorporating a “Thankful Tree” like this one from Simply Vintage Girl. It’s a cute DIY project that is sure to make everyone smile when they have a chance to write down the things they’re thankful for.
3. “Thanks” Mantel Decor — This seemingly simple DIY project makes for a very unique mantel decoration that I’m totally in love with. All you need are 6 matching bottles, either vinyl letters or stencils and paint, and some wheat to complete the look. Thanks to Thrive for posting!
Don’t forget that we’re giving away a “What’s Your Status?” glass by Designs by Lolita today — now that’s something to be thankful for ;). The deadline to enter is 5pm EDT!
