It's soon time to invite family and friends for Thanksgiving dinner. Even though we now live in Norway we still try to celebrate Thanksgiving every year. It is one of the many beautiful traditions that we brought back with us after having lived in the US. We focus on all the things we are grateful for and enjoy time together with the people we love.
This is also a chance to create a festive autumn table. Here are some ideas to help you decorate your special Thanksgiving table this year.
Make an elegant menu card
Placecards can be so much more than just a piece of cardboard. Use your imagination.
Use family photos to remind everyone that Thanksgiving is all about family.
Stamp or write a message
on a linen tablecloth
on your simple white napkins or on your napkinrings.
Make a striking centerpiece using flowers in rich colors
or use simple white flowers with rich fabrics.
You can also bring nature inside by creating a centerpiece with vegetable, fruits, pinecones, twigs, branches of spruce or leafs
How about a glass vase filled with kumquats and topped with a pinecone-shape candle?
Candles always creates a festive atmosphere. Find new ways of decorating with them.
The most beautiful candle displays are often the simples. Use everyday items like corn or multicolor popcorn kernels.
You can even use snacks as a decorative element on your table.
However you choose to decorate your table, let it reflect your personal style. Look around your home for things that you can use to make your table special and unique. Enjoy!
