We are heading towards the end of the year, which means holidays and celebrations. Fall season is the time when the warmth, proper lighting and decoration of the home is a must. As it’s almost time for Thanksgiving, most people have started planning on what the menu should be for the entire family to enjoy and be the perfect dinner party. While we prepare our homes for the guests, bring out the best china and dig out those family recipes, the decorations cannot be ignored. The frame of mind at the table could be rustic, modern or anything in between. This should inspire your creativity, be a delight to the senses and set the mood for the entire evening.
We can show you how to make this holiday into an unforgettable family reunion. By using just simple items like pumpkins, metallic table runners, candles, flowers and few extraordinary ideas make the ambiance of that dinner party special. These are a few DIY idea:
Decorate with Pumpkins: Select light or bright table decor such as white pumpkins to create a beautiful fall arrangement that your guests will love. They can even be painted in any color you want, even to match the color scheme of your dining room.
Metallic Table Runner: Everything looks better in glitter. Infuse your table with holiday glitter by adding a touch of class with gold. Start with adding some natural texture with a striking burlap table runner. You could even decorate with pumpkins, branches, leaves and pinecones (all spray painted gold), creating a modern and artistic with rustic shades.
Table Decorations: the food will look more appetizing if the table is decorated well. You could begin with a wooden plank in the center of your table, add pillar candles in fall-inspired hues or scented candles. Encircle the centerpiece with beautiful ribbons or gourds, dried berries and vines. Add place settings in fall colors, topped with linen napkins wrapped with ribbons and dried leaves or even painted potpourri.
Twig Table Runner: Add organic materials to your table with a table runner made of twigs. Gather twigs decorate or use them as they are.
