Whether your aesthetic is rustic and homey, or lush and elegant, you will find some great ideas to kick start your Thanksgiving decorating. Create a unique centerpiece out of fall foliage, pumpkins and gourds, or even fall-colored flowers. Then put together formal place settings with name and menu cards or just make simple ones with a single pumpkin at each place with a cloth napkin. You can purchase all of your decorations or make your own with some simple do it yourself projects. Get creative and fill your house with beautiful decor that your family and friends will enjoy this year!

      Love your ideas. It's spring here and we don't celebrate thanksgiving, but it's a great notion. We used to have Harvest Festival in our churches in Autumn, but many seem to have stopped doing that now. We should always be thanking God for His abundant care.
