It's Almost Thanksgiving Holiday Decor-Scarecrow With Tractor

Updated on June 14, 2016

Decorating for the Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season. Your family will enjoy the holiday with festive tabletop decorations in Fall colors and motifs. You will see the excitement on the faces of the children as they marvel at the holiday scene depicting a family getting ready for their celebration. Adult also enjoy these decorations and what a better way than to dress-up the house with Thanksgiving themed items.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holidays. I love to cook for my family and although I am a vegetarian I prepare a full holiday dinner for my family and friends every year. I go all out with Turkey, dressing, homemade cranberry sauce, homemade pies, and all of the traditional holiday foods. I also cook a Tofurkey for the vegetarian members of my family. I get the whole holiday package with vegetarian gravy and dressing. My family appreciates the effort I put into the celebration.

Each year my family arrives at my home so I like to have the house decorated for the occasion. I like tabletop displays which the children stand and stare at imagining themselves as part of the scene. I like ceramic pumpkins, wreaths, lights, and garland. The entire house including the bathrooms and bedrooms are decked out for the season.

My family expects this treatment every year and with 7 grandchildren I don't want to disappoint them. The children enjoy the yard decorations as well. I have and inflatable turkey and pilgrim on the from lawn just for them. I decorate the backyard as well since we live in the deep south it is always very warm outside so breakfast and lunch is taken outdoors to enjoy. This way we can eat on holiday paper plates and avoid a lot of the clean up that goes along with a big crowd. In the evening it it gets cooler we sit around a small campfire while the children play board games on the picnic table. This is one of the few times of the year that all of the children visit at the same time. The children love to interact with their cousin and love my Fall outdoor decorations as well.

Harvest set includes: Couple, Basket, Cornucopia, Pumpkins, Turkey.

Approx. 2-7/8" x 2" x 1-5/8", each

Tabletop Decorating.

Tabletop Decorating for you home using simple tips and technique to bring the holiday to your home. You can also decorate with the food you serve. You can serve your wonderful meal in decorative serving pieces and these can be color coordinated to you food. Most of use are used to the turkey and pilgrim dinnerware. However, there are also serving pieces that add to the decorating on the holiday.

The best way to collect Thanksgiving serving pieces is to do it over time. Many of my pieces are things that I found online and keep just for the holiday. Since traditionally Thanksgiving colors usually vary very little it is easy to mix and match them. One year you may want to purchase charger plates, and the next salad plates to perhaps match your good china. These are items which are easy to find and by collecting a little each year, you won't challenge your budget.

Little knick knacks and decorative dip plate with matching knives or spoon are perfect for the before meal snacking. Candles in themed holders and displays are also a nice way to make your home ready for the festivities. You may also want to have a special tablecloth and table runner for your buffet or coffee table to draw attention to the food you are serving.
