Attractive Holiday Décor
It’s time to talk turkey. And table settings. Centerpieces. Plus, all kinds of holiday décor. The turkey may be the main attraction of your delicious holiday feast, but you can make the décor as fantastic as the food. Radiant colors, beautiful platters and creative accessories all work together to create a feast for the eyes and palate.
Time to Shine
Add some sparkle to your table with brightly-hued glassware and jeweled chargers to set off your dinner plates. Available in iridescent autumn colors, chargers and glassware add modern sparkle to a traditional meal and give your table a cohesive look.
Set the Mood with Color
From amber colored roses to golden-dipped pumpkins, fall’s favorite hue is front and center this year. Bold gold serving pieces from Pottery Barn make a statement.
Dressing the Holiday Table
Whether you’re going for an elegant or casual look, centerpieces set the mood. You can find a plethora of fall looks this time of year or make your own. Select traditional baskets, cornucopias or any unique container that appeals to you. For a stylish feel, fill with fall flowers in luscious colors. Take the arrangement in a more easygoing direction by filling baskets with pumpkins, gourds or apples. Add even more flair with unusual bounty like artichokes or pomegranates.
Get the Kids Involved
Here’s a clever idea from HGTV. Have the kids cut out leaves from brightly-colored construction paper. Ask family and friend to write what they are thankful for on the leaves and hang them on branches to create a meaningful centerpiece.
Wreaths that Rock
Consider making your own wreath this year. Use fall’s best bounty like pumpkins, gourds or even brightly-colored citrus fruit.
Vintage Autumnal Retreat
In a new twist on tradition, vintage accents, such as delicate lace, antique picture frames and stacks of wheat, can transform a holiday table or mantel. Carry out the theme with stunning arrangements, such as rustic wooden containers filled with fresh blooms and accented with shimmering gold and lace.
Rosemary Adds Flair and Flavor
Fresh rosemary plants make lovely, aromatic centerpieces and can be planted later to provide the fresh herb whenever you need it. For effortless, coordinated style, place the rosemary plants on burlap runners and scatter oranges and nuts down the runner for color and an organic feel. Rosemary plants also make unique and lasting hostess gifts.
A Color for All Seasons
Red is a perfect color to take you from November through early January. Crimson and metallic marry beautifully and transition seamlessly throughout the holiday season.
Different Door Bells
As the holiday season progresses, welcome guests to your home with a cheerful ring. Place a set of jingle bells on a holiday wreath, or attach them to your front door knob.
