If you want to deck the halls before the Turkey, there’s no reason you can’t do it! Here are some quick tips to get you started.
Think NeutralsGo with a cozy warm neutral while toning down the glitz is a great way to blend Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Start with the Tree If you’re eager to put up the tree, I say do it! Opt for a neutral or autumn-themed tree skirt and add ornaments in an autumn color palette like gold, bronze, or rusty red. Then gradually swap them out for Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving.
Wreaths and GarlandsHang fall-inspired wreaths and garlands featuring colorful leaves, pinecones, and berries. Keep the glitz and glamour off until after Thanksgiving. Then add small Christmas elements like mini ornaments or lights to gradually transition to a full-fledged Christmas look.
Dual-Purpose DecorInvest in decor that can serve for both fall and Christmas. For example, decorative lanterns, cozy throw blankets, and pillows can easily transition into the holiday season with the addition of some festive accents.
Table Setting MagicCreate an elegant Thanksgiving table setting with a neutral color palette and rustic elements. As you get closer to Christmas, incorporate more reds, greens, and metallics to transform your table into a festive holiday spread.
Outdoor Lighting: Start by adorning your outdoor spaces with fall-themed lighting like warm string lights and lanterns. As the weeks go by, add more Christmas lights and decorations to make your home shine throughout the holiday season.
Decorating for Thanksgiving and Christmas doesn’t mean skipping the essence of fall. Instead, it allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds, celebrating the warmth and gratitude of Thanksgiving while embracing the festive charm of Christmas.
