Fun Thanksgiving Theme Decor
As I showed in the video located at the end of this blog and said in a previous post, the ideas shown in the video were meant for a wedding but could just as easily be recreated for a more formal Thanksgiving or autumn dinner party. And with Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's not too early to start planning how your party will look.
However, if your family is more fun than formal, I'm showing you some products from the PartyPlansPlus.Makesparties.com website. They have charming paper products, fanciful decor and funny costumes to add some authenticity (and hilarity) to your Thanksgiving celebration.
Put up an autumn forest backdrop. The leaves will be gone in most areas by the time Thanksgiving comes around (or they won't be there at all in the southern states) but that doesn't mean you can't decorate your room as if you're surrounded by Mother Nature at her fiery best.
Or maybe you want to give your guests a pilgrim's hat as a place marker and a good reason to get everyone giggling. And won't you be the hit of the party if you arrive at someone else's celebration decked out as Miles Standish!
A tinsel wreath will be a more casual centerpiece element than the one in the video but will accomplish the same sparkling setting when paired with a hurricane-enclosed candle.
Finally, for more style, instead of a chair tie, wrap autumn garlands around chairs or edge your table with them or cut them into pieces to use as napkin ties. Whatever you do with the garlands, they will add color and charm to your table setting.
Thanks again to Panache, a Classic Party Rental Company, for use of their gorgeous linens, tables and rentals for the video. Remember Panache offers affordable elegance.
