11. Thanksgiving Table Topper

If you need some fresh ideas for your Thanksgiving decor then you’ve come to the right place.  Thanksgiving decorations can be inexpensive…. You can re-purpose everyday things into a Fall or Thanksgiving theme by changing the color or adding embellishments such as pine cones, pumpkins, and acorns etc.  Check out the photos below and see if they inspire you to use something you already have on hand.

12. Thankful Jar

Normally by this time in November I would have put up our Thanksgiving tree. I like to have it up all of November so we can focus on our gratitude all month. But here it is 10 days before Thanksgiving Day and I barely managed to get the Halloween decorations down just a few days ago. I just haven’t managed to go dig up the hedge clippers and trudge outside to get some branches for the tree, so it hasn’t gone up yet.

13. Family Fireplace Topper

I’ll never forget a certain Thanksgiving about 8 years ago.  We had just moved to Des Moines, Iowa for my husbands new job.  I was 22, and we knew no one.  The Mr. worked all day and went to graduate school at night.  I still hadn’t found a job yet and I was spending all my days refinishing hardwood floors, painting, tiling and generally trying to beautify (somethings never change) our first “new to us”  run down little home.

16. Thanksgiving Table Decorations

How was your weekend? I’ve been working my butt off on an exciting project where I’m partnering with 11 other bloggers (details later in the post). Let’s just say Christmas came a lot earlier to our neck of the woods, which in turn means that my time for Thanksgiving prep is really limited. With such a tight schedule I’m yet again looking at easy (read last minute) and thrifty table decorations for Thanksgiving. These are centerpieces, place cards, and runners that use your typical harvest items like pumpkins, gourds, fruits, Fall leaves, and twigs from the yard.

17. Beautiful Handmade Decorations

Fall is truly a special season. The vivid brilliance of nature’s colors that this season brings is one of the allures that make us spend so much time outside, simply taking in the colors. This plethora of colors, textures, and shades that fall unravels along with the freshness in the air is what makes this season a pleasant time of the year.

Is this the CUTEST cheese ball you have ever seen? Angela from Handmade in the Heartland made this darling (and tasty) cheese ball and it’s so cute I had to make one. I used a simple cheese ball recipe that I have made for years but if you’d like something a little spicier and more interesting, hop over to Angela’s blog. Her recipe looks pretty awesome. She even has pineapple in her cheese ball. I’m definitely tempted to make one with her recipe next time.
