Thanksgiving is one of the most beloved family holidays that can bring the whole family together. The last year has been tough, so this year we have the chance to make up for it and fully embrace the Thanksgiving spirit.
In this article, the home and style experts at Fireside Furniture are going to look at some of the best ways of decorating your home this Thanksgiving Holiday.
Decorating Your Home
The Thanksgiving theme is one we all know very well. Although we may be in 2021, this theme is incredibly traditional and based on warm tones such as brown, orange, yellow and red. Many people opt to decorate their homes starting from the door with a beautiful wreath or even a custom welcome mat. Fallen leaves, twigs, and little acorns can be scattered throughout to extend this atmosphere well into the home.
Thanksgiving-centered artwork can really add to the mood inside. This can range from professional pieces to turkey hands traced by the kids. No matter what you do, make sure to have fun with it!
Adding Some Spice to the Fire
If your home has a fireplace, this can end up acting like a watering hole for both family and friends once they arrive. The warmth and comfort of a fireplace bring everyone together and perfectly symbolize Thanksgiving.

There are many great ideas for decorating your fireplace. Much can be done on the mantle of the fireplace as this can be used to hold various items. Scented candles, such as pumpkin and cinnamon, would help bring that extra little dash of Thanksgiving to the room. Smaller ornaments are available online and can really make a huge difference to the room. Small pumpkins, wreaths, and even toy turkeys can be placed on the mantle or even on the side tables around the room. Decorative linen, flowers, dried twigs, and leaves can also be elegantly placed on the mantle for a classier look.
The Dining Room Table Decorations
The biggest meal of the year deserves the best table to go along with it. Although modern times have simplified and minimalized much of the table, there is still much you can do to make yours stand out. Minimal does not always cast out traditions, so linen in the warm shades of brown or beige can easily find its place on the table. Wooden or rustic-toned underplates, cutlery, and crockery can help add some tradition. Small ornaments can be scattered around the table to add that Thanksgiving vibe as long as they do not distract from the centerpiece.
Everyone loves a great centerpiece. A cornucopia centerpiece is arguably the most traditional, but flowers are also extremely popular. Longer centerpieces are also gaining in popularity as they can make everyone feel closer. These centerpieces can include fairy lights, small ornaments, twigs, acorns, leaves, and even rustic vegetables. Your creativity can really run wild here to create the perfect centerpiece for your table. More artistic centerpieces exist, such as wheat bundles, painted pumpkins, and flowers in a maize vase.
