There’s a time and a place for ceramic cornucopias and gourds with googly eyes...but it ain’t this gal’s Thanksgiving fete. Below, eight easy, elegant and thoroughly non-kitschy decor ideas.
8 Thanksgiving Decor Ideas That Are Totally Tasteful
Fill Vases With Fallen Branches
Behold: The loveliest (and least expensive) addition to your holiday mantlescape.
Decorate Your Food
Turkeys, cakes, you name it: They all look so much snazzier with herb or floral garnish.
Dress The Buffet
Why stop at just the food? A few strategically placed fall branches will add so much drama to your spread.
Add Unexpected Pumpkin Displays
Who says pumpkin piles have to live on the porch? This under-console situation is just the chicest.
Stage An Autumn Tableau
Know how a tree setup just announces Christmas? We say, adopt that concept for turkey day with a large-scale, fall-themed nature moment. (Think: a non-working fireplace filled with gorgeous gourds and blooms!)
Top Napkins With Fall Fruits
Little tabletop details can make for a highly 'Grammable moment. We’re super loving this persimmon-garnished napkin situation.
Stick To Warm Tabletop Tones
Reds, golds, coppers, oranges—bring ‘em. When you select solid colors, this typical fall palette can still feel totally unexpected.
Arrange A Fleet Of Bud Vases
If you’re feeling crafty, buy some fall greens and blooms at your local grocery (eucalyptus, mums, etc.)—then trim them into mini bud vase arrangements to decorate all your surfaces.
