One of the best things about decorating for Halloween is once you pack away the skeletons and witches you can continue to use fall foliage and gourds for Thanksgiving.
Start with your front door.
The key to a creating great display is piling on layers of texture, color and pattern. And that’s what I did on this glass top iron table next to my front door.
I want a rustic, earthy display, so I pulled this old cast iron urn out of my garden.
Contrast is so important to a successful interior design scheme. Same with small displays. I love the contrast between the rustic placemat and elegant gold patina tray. The tray was a bargain at Goodwill for only $1.99.
Add a layer of leaves and top with candles in fall colors.
Tuck in some berries and gourds left over from Halloween.
It’s never too early to express your gratitude. I tied a brown ribbon on a basic card stock tag and carefully burnt the edges. You can use the same idea for place cards at your Thanksgiving dinner table.
A warm welcome is so easy to do with just a few items.
