Try a Squash Alternative
Pumpkins are quick and easy to find, but you can step out of your comfort zone by opting for decor made of squash.
With a penchant for using natural elements as indoor decor, Michael from Inspired by Charm took inspiration from an acorn squash and decided to transform it into fall decor. By gluing rope to the acorn squash, he was able to create a unique piece that spices up the rest of his decor.
A Thankful Reminder
Express your gratitude for this season with a reminder you’ll love to look at.
For homes with a neutral color scheme, a wooden sign like this one by Blooming Homestead is a nice warm touch to the mantelpiece or side table. Simply stencil in your Thanksgiving phrase and add in burlap and lace cut outs.
