Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas

With the holidays upon us we thought we would share some fun ideas on how to make your home festive and warm this season!

  • Add a few festive, fall colored throw pillows or blankets on the sofa.
  • Buy a pumpkin scented candle to make your home really “smell” like Thanksgiving!
  • Update your landscape with some simple container replanting. Use grasses, pansies, ornamental kale and Redtwig Dogwood.
  • Arrange some pumpkins and a simple fall garland on your mantle. Pick leaves from your yard (or in your neighborhood) and arrange them in the garland.
  • Purchase a fall floral arrangement from The Florist at Moana Nursery (let us do the work for you!) or choose beautiful, brightly colored flower arrangements from Pasadena Florist to make your moments more special.
  • Design a harvest wreath. This is easier than it looks, but the folks here at Moana can help you realize your vision at a very affordable price. We promise not to take credit for it either – it will be our little secret.
  • Get your kids in on the decorating fun by having them design/paint/draw some fall artwork for you. Get some inexpensive frames at the dollar store and display these precious works of art around your home.
  • Arrange leaves in clear bowls on the coffee table, dining table or anywhere you want!
  • Tie a ribbon with your favorite fall color(s) (orange, green, red, yellow, etc.) around some pine cones. Hang them on curtain rods.
  • Use clean, autumn leaves as place cards at the dinner table (rinse and pat them dry). Write each guest’s name on a leaf with a black or gold felt-tip pen and place them at each table setting.

Remember to enjoy your time together this holiday season. Give thanks for one another and have a special holiday season. From our family, to yours!
