Thanksgiving Home Tour

November 17, 2014


I was hit hard by the Christmas spirit this past week, and I was so close to pulling out all of my decorations and just going all in! I usually hold out until after Thanksgiving, but I couldn't help it. They started playing Christmas music on xm radio (the Holly station), and I gave in to it and have been listening (almost) non-stop. 

Then I paused and thought about it a few minutes. I love Thanksgiving too much to just skip over the fall decorations. In a last-ditch effort to fulfill my cravings for decorating, and still try to hold on to the little bit of Fall left in this season, I ran out to shop for some 'Thanksgiving appropriate' decor (and bonus: because stores had their Christmas stuff out it was all on sale!!!!).

My dining room is now decked out in full-on Thanksgiving! Woo! The best part is that I used greenery from my Christmas collection so I can easily transition the day after Thanksgiving. :)

It was pretty simple, and took about 20 minutes to do. The leaves were in a bundle, so I deconstructed them (which I do anytime I buy faux floral decorations - it's safe to say that I never buy a bundle of flowers or greenery and leave it in the original arrangement) and placed individual leaves in the greenery. Then each of the other items were placed throughout and on the table itself. They were already individual so it didn't take much effort. Some of the stems were shortened, but other than that it was out of the bag and onto the table (kind of like dinner some nights).

When it's time to get the Christmas stuff ready, I can just pull out each of the items and store them away for next year! I might leave the little berries, pears and pomegranates though...they could be Christmasy too.







Have you decorated for Christmas yet? I feel like a lot of people have...and I'm kind of jealous...but I  am also pretty pleased with how my Thanksgiving Table came together. Next year I'll be ready!

If you decorated for Thanksgiving/Fall, and have a picture, share a link to your blog post showcasing your decorations in the comments, or post a picture on Instagram and tag me @rebecca_hellocreative!
