Including creating beautiful tablescapes and cozy corners
Thanksgiving is all about traditions, family, gratitude and, of course, delicious comfort food. And while the turkey may be the main event, your decor really sets the tone for this heartwarming holiday.
At ReadyFestive, we are offering two Thanksgiving-themed boxes filled with decor items that will make decorating for this year’s festivities a breeze. Here’s a peek into our two Thanksgiving boxes and some styling tips that emphasize the importance of gathering with loved ones, honoring old traditions, and creating new ones!
Theme #1: Jewel Tones
After a decade mostly dominated by crisp whites and cool greys, jewel tones are bringing rich, beautiful hues back into our homes. Featuring colors derived from precious gemstones, the items in the Jewel Tones Box are sure to add the perfect earthy, fall-inspired touch to your celebration space.
The star of this box is undoubtedly the gold pheasant statue, which is complemented beautifully by colorful tassel pillows, a golden bead garland, a clean-burning Aqua de Soi candle,
“Give Thanks” standing letters (a true statement piece!), and a block print patterned table runner and coordinating dish towel (just to name a few things!).
If you’re looking to dress up your space with boho decor that’s equal parts trendy and inviting, the Jewel Tones Box is for you.
Theme #2: Classic
This collection of items is inspired by tradition. It features neutral fall colors like cream and burnt orange that create a warm, inviting space for hosting your friends and family.
The signature piece in the Classic Box is the rustic, off-white turkey statuette—a captivating centerpiece that adds unique charm to any home. In this box, you’ll also find a Mudpie pumpkin tassel garland , a cream and white table runner, a “Gather” pillow, a pumpkin-scented candle, decorative books, and other Thanksgiving-themed items.
If you’re going for a traditional or Farmhouse style look, the Classic Box is your ideal match.
Tips for Decorating Your Thanksgiving Table
Since the Thanksgiving feast is typically the center point of the entire celebration, curating an aesthetic table display is an excellent way to up the festive feel. Here are our top tips for creating a table that’s dressed to impress!
Create Multiple Centerpieces
Sure, the turkey might be your table’s centerpiece, but why settle for just one?
Deck your table out with figurines, candles, pumpkins, beads, and vases bursting with fresh, seasonal flowers. By having multiple centerpieces, your guests will have a charming view regardless of where they’re seated at the table.
Set the Tone with Festive Tableware
When planning out your table decor, don’t forget about the tableware!
Set your table with festive napkin rings, plates and bowls featuring fall colors and patterns, such as our turkey and pumpkin painted bowls in the Classic Box. Themed appetizer napkins and fall-inspired cloth napkins also add a nice, festive touch to the table.
Introduce a Table Tradition
In addition to our two Thanksgiving boxes, we also offer a Turkey Day add-on that both children and adults are sure to enjoy.
Turkey on the Table® includes an adorable knit turkey, 13 double-sided “thankful feathers,” a marker, and a heartwarming book. Invite your guests to write what they’re thankful for on a feather as they arrive and attach it to the turkey. Reading what everyone is thankful for is sure to inspire thoughtful conversations and induce warm-fuzzy feelings.
Bonus: have a contest to see who can come up with the best name for the turkey! Kids especially will love this.
How to Create a Cozy Thanksgiving Corner
While Thanksgiving gatherings are a great time to connect with the special people in your life, the atmosphere can sometimes be a little overwhelming, what with having your whole family in one place.
Create a cozy corner in your celebration area where guests can step away from the hustle-bustle, cozy up, and relax. The cozy corner also makes a great place to enjoy a hot toddy or a pumpkin-themed dessert.
So, how do you create a cozy corner? It’s easy. All you need is:
- A relaxing space: Choose somewhere comfortable on the outskirts of the action. A cushy corner sofa or chair is ideal.
- A throw blanket: Choose a super soft blanket that boasts fall colors or patterns. When not in use, fold the blanket and drape it over the arm or back of the chair or sofa.
- Fall-scented candles: Candles are an easy way to instantly up the cozy factor. Choose a candle with fall scents like pumpkin, cinnamon, or spiced apple, and place it on a side table. The candles found in our two Thanksgiving boxes would be a great addition to your cozy corner!
- A throw pillow or two: Throw pillows not only serve to make the corner look inviting, but can also make it more comfortable.
