Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Planning and cooking the main dinner can be challenging enough for most of us, and worrying about decorations is the last thing on the mind. Here are a few quick tricks to turn that dinner into a feast:
- Use sage, fir, or other thick herbs to adorn napkins and place settings. Flowers don’t have to be the only touch of greenery at the table this year.
- Spruce up the candles by placing them in round clear vases with cranberries, walnuts or pumpkins at the bottom to create instant aromas and a great centerpiece.
- Get away from the traditional Thanksgiving colors of maroon, orange and brown by shaking things up with gold and silver painted mini pumpkins at the table.
- Spills and stains are inevitable to a nice tablecloth with little ones around. Avoid this by using brown butcher paper, sticking with a rustic Thanksgiving theme and giving kids the chance to color all over it.
These simple tips can transform a Thanksgiving dinner and can be done in minutes, leaving you more time for that turkey!
