Creating a beautiful home for Thanksgiving can often feel overwhelming, especially with all the planning that is involved for food, guests and everything else for the day! But there are some key Thanksgiving Décor pieces that can easily be used every year to create a wonderful home to celebrate the holiday. Let’s explore some Thanksgiving Décor ideas!
As Thanksgiving is the holiday of celebrating the harvest, it’s important to keep this in mind when choosing decorations for your home. Think about the variety of colors that are associated with this. Burnt orange, yellow, red and natural linen, cream, and browns – these are all fantastic colors to use in your home for Thanksgiving. I also love to incorporate some of the harvest food and ingredients in the decorations so it’s even more relevant to the holiday. Dried pampas leaves, dried wheatgrass, pumpkins, and berries.
In the United States, Thanksgiving dates back as early as the 1600s. The holiday was prompted by “the good harvest” of the previous year and as a celebration and thanks for the safety and health for all the family and those involved in harvesting the land. The first Thanksgiving in 1621 lasted three days in total and was the first large feast. Thanksgiving is celebrated in the US, Canada, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia. There are similar holidays in both Germany and Japan too.
Nowadays, Thanksgiving is a huge holiday where all the family gather, enjoy food, and celebrate everyone’s good health. Everyone who gathers gives thanks and enjoys spending time with their loved ones.
Thanksgiving Décor has evolved a lot since the 1600s! And in many ways is compared to those decorations seen around Christmas time. The difference is the emphasis on the harvest colors (orange, yellow, brown, and red), the theme of the decorations (all about the harvest of crops), and the meaning behind the holiday – giving thanks.
This style often includes:
- Orange – represents a Pumpkin
- Yellow – for the corn
- Brown – representing the turkey
- Red – for cranberries
- Harvest inspired decorations – dried pampas, leaves and grasses
