A Thanksgiving Mantel and Last Minute Decorating Tips

Hi Everyone,

It’s me again! Thanksgiving is coming up this week and I wanted to squeeze in one more post to show you my Thanksgiving Mantel before we move on to Christmas!Decorating A Mantel For Thanksgiving

My mantel is one of those things in my home that is always changing. If I had the choice to only decorate one thing in my home for an upcoming holiday it would be my mantel. The focal point of his year’s Thanksgiving Mantel features a white ceramic pilgrim woman and a bundle of vintage books.

Thanksgiving Mantel with Mercury Glass Pumpkins

Last year I went a bit crazy buying tons of mercury glass pumpkins. Four of them are proudly displayed on my Thanksgiving Mantel along with a vintage inspired tin pail filled with dried wheat, some pine cones, berries and silk leaves.

At the base of my fireplace I created a vignette with some of my everyday decor and a milk glass vase filled with branches from the back yard.

Decorating For Thanksgiving

I love my Thanksgiving Mantel for 2013. Every year I try to mix it up a little and do something different.

Last Minute Thanksgiving Decorating Tips:

If you are hosting Thanksgiving this year and have not gotten around to finish your decorating here are a few simple decorating ideas that can make your home festive.

  • Use pine cones and silk fall leaves as fillers in your every day decor. Tuck them on shelves, in centerpieces and anywhere you want to give a Thanksgiving feel.
  • Fill a glass container with fall potpourri, small pumpkins and pine cones for a quick and easy Thanksgiving centerpiece. Your local grocery store usually carries small ornamental pumpkins and scented pine cones this time of year.

Thanksgiving Decorating

  • Bring a touch of nature to your Thanksgiving decorating. Create a centerpiece by filling a vase with some old branches found right in your own backyard. Old mason jars make wonderful vases!
  • Place a small ceramic turkey under a glass cloche for instant Thanksgiving Decor.
