It's now November 1st, Halloween is in the rear view mirror. It is time to put away the skulls and spiders and start the transition into Thanksgiving. It is a little tricky with the timing because you are moving out of fall, halloween is over and the okay for Christmas is about a month away. What to do with those three 1/2 weeks before you deck the halls for Christmas? I have some ideas for you.
TIP #1: CHANGE YOUR COLOR PALLET
While my Halloween decor focused on a lot of white and black I warm things up for the transition to Thanskgiving. I have a really neutral home, so you will see a lot of natural and green elements in my thanksgiving decor. but, November is the only month where I play with a color pallet with whites, yellows, greens and oranges.
TIP #2 PAIR DOWN THE PUMPKINS
They don't all have to go away; but cut the quantity you have in half. In November I like to switch up my traditional pumpkins with more ornamental gourds and mix in yellows and greens.
TIP #3: SWITCH UP YOUR PILLOWS
The easiest way to make a change is with pillows; here are a few of my favorites:
TIP 4: ADD THANKSGIVING SIGN
Whether it is a DIY chalkboard, hand lettered scroll or a cute sign you found at the store... switch up your walls with phrases that represent thanksgiving. "grateful," "Thankful," "Blessed," or something fun like "Gobble until you wobble!"
TIP 5: INCORPORATE A THANKSGIVING "KIDS ZONE"
If you have children, grandchildren and / are hosting a family thanksgiving and while have littles involved; create an area just for them. Add a countdown calendar, incorporate a fun paper table running they can color or fun placemats.
