While we’re entering into what’s typically considered “the most wonderful time of the year,” things have been feeling pretty heavy lately. (Well, all of 2020, TBH!) Instead of focusing on the negative, we invite you to take some time this week to make your home feel extra special, cozy, and festive for Thanksgiving next week. Because even during the hard times, there are always reasons to be thankful.

We talked to local blogger Chrissy from Blushed Living about some of her favorite ways to decorate her home:

1. Tablescapes set the stage for the meal! Even if this year’s group will be smaller, don’t let that stop you from creating a fun table setting. (The table in the picture seats 4-6 people.) Don’t worry about perfect symmetry. Play with height and sizes of objects. If you are using height, remember to make sure that people can still see one another across the table.

2. Use wreaths indoors. Wreaths add depth to flat mirrors, which naturally give more light and an airy feel to smaller rooms. Great match!

3. More on wreaths … An intricate wreath can be used as a focal point in a space. (Try one above a chair, like in this photo, or above a mantle, sofa etc.)

4. Florals aren’t just for spring and summer. Go to a local florist and grab some bouquets with sunflowers, orange zinnias, and yellow roses. To make it more interesting, add faux leaves, pumpkins, candles or any of your other favorite fall decor.

5. Add fall touches in all rooms. IE: pumpkin candles on coffee bar, faux leaves in a vase in kid rooms. Keep decor in kid rooms fun with bright or playful pumpkins.
