Before the end of the year holidays, Thanksgiving is another perfect time to meet up with family or friends. And if this year, you are the host of the meal, here are some ideas to steal so that your loved ones feel like they are immersed in a real autumnal paradise!
Who says thanksgiving, says autumn! And who says autumn, necessarily means a natural and colorful decor! Pomegranates, fresh grapes, pears, succulent persimmon, autumn leaves, pumpkins painted in refined colors as well as several small delicate bouquets … the table decoration for Thanksgiving has never been so attractive and easy to make on your own. And for those who fell in love with our Scandinavian-style Halloween decor, the “Thanksgiving” meal will not be spared by the Nordic decor!
Decorating ideas to celebrate Thanksgiving in style
The party season has just started and Thanksgiving is the number one event on the calendar! And before putting the autumn dinner aperitifs on the table, the decoration of the latter requires your full attention in order to make the famous Thanksgiving feast a success. Among the comforting materials, seasonal fruits and vegetables and the cocooning Scandinavian atmospheres that this time of year offer you, you can very easily find inspiration for the arrangement of your table. Without complicating your life too much, decorate the dining area with a few beets, carrots, squash or artichokes in the center.
For a smart table decoration, do not hesitate to reuse the pumpkins and squash lying around since Halloween. A few spray cans or a golden spray and voila! You can also hang personalized labels with the names and surnames of the guests. Thus, squash become pretty plate gifts that your loved ones can take home. If, on the other hand, you don't have the time or patience to DIY, get a permanent marker and write the guest's first name directly on the squash. Persimmon fruits and pomegranates are also welcome to decorate dinner plates.
And for the more creative among you, rather than opting for a bowl, why not serve the fall soup in a mini hollowed out pumpkin? Gourmet and eye-catching, this idea will not only wow diners, but also complement the palette of fall shades so popular at Thanksgiving. After all, the meals you serve are also an integral part of the feast! You can, for example, enhance the green color of your beans by serving them with emerald green napkins. Pouring the cranberry sauce into small trays in bright red will be just as beautiful!
Thanksgiving, no need to eat everything! At the end of the meal, you can simply treat your loved ones with leftover turkey or sweet fall cake in personalized small kraft bags, like the ones above. Original and 100% anti-waste, this delicate little gesture towards the environment will not go unnoticed!
As for the flagship element of each party decoration, the centerpiece, we once again focus on everything that is natural and green. Enhance the decor with fresh flowers, natural textures, and seasonal fruits and vegetables. Feel free to add something from the garden or the backyard to your table decoration, like dried leaves, ears of wheat, olive branches or acorns. To alternate these, integrating external elements, such as casseroles, bowls, vases or candles, is also suitable.
For those who value simplicity and speed, the painted and flower-filled pumpkin will do just fine! In addition to being super easy to achieve, this one will bring an unparalleled party atmosphere to the table, without overdoing it. And to keep your flowers fresh for longer, insert a small can filled with water into the squash. A simple idea, but worth it. Autumn leaves, pine cones, candle holders and even a large round solid wood tray will add character to the centerpiece!
Wheat ears have a long lifespan and they combine perfectly with feathers, pumpkins and autumn leaves. They are an absolutely necessary element if you want to make an original and remarkable decoration. Like the fall leaves, they are a great base for making a fall wreath, without which the Thanksgiving decor will not be the same.
