With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we are sure some of you are wondering how you can make your home look festive and inviting! By adding just a few simple touches to your décor you can achieve a warm and spirited home that is perfect for entertaining guests. Between prepping the turkey and baking the pies, throw pillows and table decorations might be the last thing on your mind. But these decorating ideas prove a little extra prep makes the holiday that much more festive.
An easy and quick was to spruce up your family room for the holidays, Budget Blinds has thousands of colors, patterns and textures to choose from for fun, festive throw pillows. You can add buttons, ruffles or other embellishments to your throw pillows to create the perfect holiday look! Just as functional as they are eye-catching, decorative pillows can really liven up your home.
Another way to add some Thanksgiving cheer to your home is by decorating your table. Grab a few pumpkins and gourds, candles and lanterns, foliage and flowers— group them together across the table and create a decorative arrangement. Add your favorite dishes that coordinate with the colors used in your décor and fill in the rest of the table with your delicious Thanksgiving feast!
If you are looking for an easy and cute way to add a personalized touch to your holiday decorating, we know just the thing! Gather leaves in your backyard or on a walk around your neighborhood. Handwrite each of your guests’ names on the leaves and use them as place cards. It’s not only adorable and personal, but free— which we love! Another great idea we stumbled across was a “thankful tree”. Gather twigs from your backyard and place them in a vase. Hole punch paper circles and hang them on the branches. Have everyone write what they are most thankful for and hang it on the tree. This is the perfect family activity that doubles as decoration.
Bring a splash of holiday cheer to your home with fun and colorful window panels. Available in a vast section of colors, patterns and prints, window panels are the simple solution to decorate your home for each season. The soft materials and fabrics available with window panels add a sense of comfort and warmth to a room and create a focal point that is both sophisticated and welcoming. Combine window panels with one or more other window treatments – incorporating different colors, textures and styles that play off each other to make an amazing look that is as subtle or bold as you desire.
