Happy (belated) Thanksgiving

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving! Below is a photo of my less-is-more approach to this year’s Thanksgiving table. It features a large crystal bowl filled with silk flowers and various types of stems, a crystal vase, a hand-blown glass pumpkin, a white and gold church, miniature pumpkins and gourds, and maple leaves. In addition, all of the items were things I already owned, proving that you don’t need to constantly buy new things to have stylish decor. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and will stay tuned for more great decorating ideas from Inspiration In A Photo!Thanksgiving table 2016

Thanksgiving Decor: The Table

Happy Thanksgiving! In my last post, I’ll be showcasing the dining room table. I decorated the front half of the table with leaves and various types of faux pumpkins and squash. In addition to the centerpiece in my previous post, I also added a bit of whimsy by having a cute little turkey peeking out from behind the vase and angels.

The placemats (below) are both functional and tie together the room’s colors and decor. Another great idea? In front of each placemat, place a folded piece of textured paper and sit it upright. While mine is currently blank, you can use yours to add well-wishes, write your guests’ names, or create a mini piece of art.

Thanksgiving Decor: Part 3

In my previous two posts I concentrated on decor in my living room (accent wall and above the window). In this post, I’ll be showing you how I decorated the dining room. I’ll start by showing you the space above our painting. This space is great for decorating, so I usually put something in this area for major holidays. As seen below, I use Happy Thanksgiving signs, foliage, and autumn food to decorate this area.

Next, we’ll look at the chandelier and window. Like the living room, I used garland to decorate the space above the window. I also used a smaller, shorter garland and wrapped it around the chandelier. When decorating a chandelier, it’s important to use light-weight items and make sure they don’t come in contact with any of the lights.
