:: happy thanksgiving

It's around the corner literally, and today I've been cleaning and getting my home ready for tomorrows festivities. I wanted to share some super simple decorating ideas with you that you can run outside and whip up in no time simply using natures bounty.  I love the simple beauty of this pinecone garland by Twig & Thistle

Or this door display by Country Living.  I wish I had seen this one sooner, as they would look so lovely on each of my french doors. This could just as easily be made for a Christmas decoration by changing out the ribbons, and maybe adding a little glitter to the pinecones {hmmmm, I think I'll add this idea to my project list}.  

How about the simple beauty of a wooden bowl and some fallen leaves to add a little bit of fall pop to your Thanksgiving decor.  It can't get much easier than this idea.

Nothing says fall and Thanksgiving to me like these lovely little pumpkins & gourds. I've seen this done with apples many times, but never really thought of using the little pumpkins & gourds, aren't they lovely.  Simply cut around a tea light and scoop out a little niche for your candle and you have the most lovely simple fall decoration

There you have it, some super easy Thanksgiving Holiday decorations that won't break the bank, or take a lot of time....Thanksgiving is tomorrow after all. I really can't believe it's here already.  Well, I better get back at it....I've got a house full of family coming tomorrow.

Hope you enjoy your time with family and friends tomorrow, eat lots of yummy goodness, and somewhere in there find some time to relax and enjoy.

:: peace :: love :: hugs ::

P.S.  I'm so very thankful to for all of you who visit me here and comment on this silly little blog.
