Minimal Thanksgiving Decoration Ideas

I’ve noticed my decorating style is getting simpler and simpler. What I’ve learned about myself is that extra stuff makes me crazy. You can only imagine what a tricky balancing game this creates because I love having things on hand (especially party supplies and holiday decor), but I hate clutter. Any great tips on how to combine the two?

So my Thanksgiving decor is ultra simple this year. In fact, I had grand visions of hand-making a gratitude tree, but you know what? Even that sounded too complicated for me right now so instead I settled on a $3 Gratitude Tree from Target. Bless that store.


See this darling acorn garland? I went out to the mail one day and found this from a dear friend. She must have known I was in a funk and this totally cheered me up.


I made this Thanksgiving banner in about 15 minutes, using this pattern from the 4th of July banner I showed you this summer. It’s just the right touch to make our home feel more warm for the Thanksgiving season. And those pine cones? They are from a recent adventure to the mountains. The pumpkin is my leftover decorated pumpkin from Halloween. I simply stuck white thumbtacks to make a monogram pumpkin. So easy.


I hope you are enjoying the Thanksgiving season! And don’t forget to share your photos of you Cherishing the Day! Tag @sofestiveblog with #sfcherishtheday to win a holiday package!

I’m obsessed with garlands/pennants lately. I love how your colors will work for different seasons. And that cute acorn garland? Awesome.
