Can we talk about how it doesn't feel like November yet? I mean, it DOES in the sense that our yard gets covered in fresh fallen leaves every other day, but in terms of time passing, it should be Labor Day. Halloween got here at breakneck speed this year and I know it'll be Thanksgiving before we know what happened. Even though it's still the beginning of the month, I want to eyeball some pretty fall and Turkey Day ideas in the spirit of planning ahead. (You won't sneak up on me this time, Pilgrims.)
As far as seasonal decor goes, I'm Team Minimal. It's not that I don't like having a festive house, but I'm not the kind of gal to go around putting ceramic turkeys in every room. (If that's your jam, you do you! I just prefer items that blend a little more with my everyday pieces.) My favorite ways to jazz things up for fall are to use pumpkins and woodland tones, so I focused on that here. I was expecting the gilded pumpkin place cards to be my siren song today, but I'm really loving the wood slice wreath. The "I'm thankful for" placemats are handy, too, because I always seem to forget one or two things on my list as everybody goes around the table. All of these qualify for the seasonal decor trifecta: festive, simple, and easy to store. A couple of things like the place cards and placemats could even go home with your guests, so that's less to worry about keeping around for another year.
So how are you decorating for fall and/or Thanksgiving? Do you like more minimal pieces, too? What's your favorite thing here? -Paige
