Thanksgiving welcome ideas

Thanksgiving Welcome

Come on in and let me share our welcoming home for Thanksgiving. The bulk of the shopping is done, which only leaves Mr. Turkey to be picked up on Wednesday so it’s all about enjoying our family time together with festive vibes all around us.

The Thanksgiving holiday is centered around the meal and a pretty table setting honors the tradition.

Setting the table well in advance avoids last minute stress. This way I can enjoy the process. I also allow plenty of time to dig out all the oversized and special serving pieces.

I actually have shared some of the elements of our table this year. The center piece I shared here {thrifted goodies – the Thanksgiving cornucopia edition}.

Your front door should smile and greet your guests as they arrive on your stoop.

I simply added this ” give thanks” sign to my everyday wreath. It’s easy and it gives all the Thanksgiving vibes.

I have the details on how I created the tag signs many years ago on this post {Thanksgiving welcome}.

From the front door into the house I always like to keep the foyer festive and seasonal too.

Seasonal vignettes in the foyer are constant around here. It’s the first space your guests enter so you want a welcoming impression.

There are a couple of details that give a nod to the holiday of gratitude with a vintage postcard and woven pumpkins.

I also created this burlap mini wreath with all the fall vibes. I will share a post on the DIY and how it will transition into Christmas decor.

Besides the foyer another spot I love to dress up seasonally is the living room mantel.

It’s dressed up with a very understated fall vibe with copper accents and frosted pine cones.

This simple styling will also easily transition into Christmas magic right after Thanksgiving.

Of course there are plenty of twinkling lights from the votives on the mantel to candles on the hearth to the soon to be roaring fire in the fireplace.

Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours

Wishing you and your loved ones a lovely Thanksgiving celebration.

We will get our Christmas tree on Friday as a family since the kids are home from college. We will continue this tradition as long as we can.

I am excited for the Christmas magic to begin. Bring on the festivities, joy and merriment!
