Festive Thanksgiving Décor and Recipes

Thanksgiving dinner is all about enjoying the company of loved ones and reflecting on what you are thankful for, but it’s also the perfect opportunity to express your decorating style. From extravagant displays to simple, elegant centerpieces, your table décor will make for a dinner to remember. We love the idea of keeping your Thanksgiving table bright and airy with neutrals that will complement the rest of your home’s décor. White candles tucked into antique brass candlesticks, brass shot glasses that double as votive holders, a bay leaf garland and heirloom pumpkins create a relaxed and elegant vibe. What do you think?
Place Setting Details
Make a huge impact on your Thanksgiving table with an adorable place setting that won’t break the bank or take too much of your precious time. Give your napkins a little extra pizazz with some cinnamon detail! Simply tie your cloth napkins in string and then tuck a sprig of greenery and a stick of cinnamon for an understated, yet festive feel. Another fun idea is purchasing mini pumpkins of all colors and sizes to place on each table setting. Write the names of your guests on each pumpkin with a gold paint pen, tie a small bow on the stem with a festive ribbon and you are good to go!
Add some all-natural style to your home by incorporating branches, leaves and other wildflowers and plants from your own backyard to create a floral arrangement your guests will love. It’s a décor technique that literally brings the beauty of the outdoors, inside. Added bonus, it’s free of cost! Place on your coffee table, side table, mantel, or in your kitchen for your family and friends to enjoy.
Hope your family is ready to gobble-gobble because this roasted turkey recipe is so tasty! Pull out all the stops for the best meal of the year. We all know the holiday meal is surrounded by the turkey and is the one dish you need to get right. With this foolproof recipe, you can roast a beautiful and succulent turkey every time here. For a fresh garnish that won't wilt, choose stiff, glossy leaves. Here, bay and citrus leaves paired with figs and kumquats is a great choice!
It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a homemade pie! Better yet, this ultimate holiday pie is for those who love apple, pumpkin and pecan pie equally. There’s no need to choose! With a gooey pecan bottom, a sweet and tart apple edge and creamy pumpkin center— your guests mouths will be watering. Make it the day before and refrigerate overnight.
