With the Thanksgiving approaching, many homeowners are planning to host family and friends for the festivities. You can creatively decorate the interior of your custom home for the holiday using seasonal color palettes and natural items found just outside your door. By bringing the outdoors inside with items such as centerpieces, you can bring out the best in your home during the season. Here are resourceful ideas you can try!
There’s no need to purchase a special centerpiece – you can craft one by collecting items from your garden! Varying colors and textures are the keys to this green project. A simple grouping of brightly colored leaves, branches, berries, seed pods and pine cones can be arranged in a vase, bowl, or even on a plate. Place in the center of your table or on a sideboard surrounded by candles for a stylish addition to your home’s decor that compliments the season.
Candles are a great way to set a peaceful mood in many rooms of your home. Place candles of varying heights on a tray and nestle them in a base of freshly picked fall leaves, small pine cones, unshelled nuts, and berry sprigs.
Mums are an eye-catching accent for your home this time of year – they add a nice, bright burst of color. Pick them up at your local nursery and place them into existing urns and containers – no need to plant them properly with potting soil! Once they fade after Thanksgiving, plant them in your garden, and replace the flowers with evergreens for the winter season.
Wreaths have become a popular year-round decoration. For the fall season, design a welcoming entrance bursting with orange, red, and yellow colors. Purchase or create a wreath that you’ll be able to use year after year. Place it on your front door, garden gate, mailbox, or shed for an outward sign of fall spirit!
Your fireplace mantel is another fitting location for festive decorations. Be sure to carefully select materials that are the right scale for your space. Dried flowers, branches, gourds, and small pumpkins work well.
