Thanksgiving can be a wonderful time to get together with friends and family and reflect on how thankful you are. If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, check out these tips to help you prepare your home for guests on this special holiday.

  1. Autumn colors

Add the feel of fall to any room by incorporating outside elements such as warm colors and autumn-like objects. Colors like yellow, orange and brown can spice up rooms and be just the touch you need to make your guests “fall” in love with your home!

  1. Door decorations

Nothing says “welcome” like a nice autumn wreath or decoration on your front door. It’s a small touch that will grab the attention of anyone coming into or leaving your home.

  1. Spice up your dinner table

Everyone knows the most essential part of Thanksgiving is the food! To accent the wonderful dinner you’ve prepared, add centerpieces. Pumpkins, fruits and candles make for easy but festive centerpieces, and will add fall flavor to your dinner table while your guests indulge!

  1. Crafts

Homemade crafts can be a fun and festive way to add your own personal touch to your home. Perhaps it’s something you put together or your children made at school. Whatever it may be, tie them into your Thanksgiving theme by displaying them near your windows or on your refrigerator.

  1. Candles/scents

Keep your home cozy and warm this holiday season with autumn-scented candles and aromas. Stores like Yankee Candle or Bath and Body Works are known for their signature fall and winter scents, so get them before they’re gone!

  1. Throw pillows/blankets

If you’re not one for over-the-top holiday décor, for a more subtle approach, decorate your furniture with throw pillows and blankets. Small accents like this are simple to execute and won’t break your holiday budget!
