Thanksgiving Decor

Pin It!
Halloween & Christmas
are such big, fun holidays
that it seems
Thanksgiving often gets
crowded out.
Not at our house!
Thanksgiving is hubby's
FAVORITE HOLIDAY--
probably because it's so
uncomplicated & peaceful.

So-o-o, no matter the temptation,
I make a sincere effort every
year to hold back the Christmas decor
for the simplicity & gratitude
Thanksgiving evokes.


If you've read my blog before, you may recall
So, I just erased & changed over to
a message appropriate for Thanksgiving!
(This time I used a chalkboard marker. 
Even though it's harder to erase, I loved using it!)

 
Some of the garland pieces are the same ones
used on the Halloween mantle, but I added
pine sprigs, glitter pine cones, & white lights.
(This is what it looks like at night.)

 
I checked today, & Costco still has these wonderful
battery-operated wax candles
with timers.
I LOVE them!
And a set of 4 is only about $20--
plus they are on coupon ($4 off)!
 HURRY!
Another area I love to decorate is
my entry way chest 
& mirror.


I used some gold letters
from Restoration Hardware
in the garland
to spell our family name.


More Thanksgiving fun to come!

  5. Your mantel is beautiful, Michelle! You have encouraged me to spend a little time today creating a Thanksgiving vignette in my entry - I was going to be a slacker until it was time to pull out the Christmas decor! I've never heard of chalk markers - I'm definitely going to check them out. Thanks for the tip :)

  7. I guess I'm a little superficial but I like Christmas better because of the gifts.
