Thanksgiving Using The Bounty Of The Season
Thanksgiving marks the
beginning of the holiday season, a time spent with family and friends. It is also the time of year when we can spend
a lot of money, and in these tough times finding ways to save during the
holidays is always welcome. Using the
natural bounty available at this time of year is a great, inexpensive, and
environmentally friendly option for decorating for the holidays. Here are a few creative ideas for your
The vegetables that are
available during the harvest season are not only great to eat, but are also a
beautiful and inexpensive way to decorate your home and table. Arrange some pumpkins or large squash on your
front steps or by the door. Also use
smaller squash as part of a table centerpiece or as candleholders. Corn is another great vegetable that can be
used as a decoration during Thanksgiving.
A bunch of corn hung on the door or arranged in a vase can create a
stunning look at virtually no cost.
The colors of the autumn
season are some of the most beautiful of the year, and collecting leaves to use
both in crafts and as part of seasonal decorations is a great and inexpensive
idea. Leaves can be a beautiful addition
to flower arrangements or can make great arrangements all on their own. They can also be used for festive wreaths for
the front door or to make Thanksgiving themed garlands.
Nuts, Berries, And
As the autumn season turns
to winter, natural decorative items such as nuts, berries, and pine branches
can be great choices not only for the Thanksgiving season but can easily
transition into the Christmas season. Adding
some walnuts to your Thanksgiving table or some berries to a wreath can add a
nice touch that will last you through the season.
Getting creative with the
natural bounty at this time of year is a great way to give your home a
beautiful and traditional holiday look without breaking the bank.
