Sandcastle Homes Decorating Tips for Thanksgiving

November 18, 2015
Published by

This time of year just begs for festive decorating… glowing pumpkins, rainbow assortments of leaves, turkeys of all shapes and sizes. (Somehow everything’s instantly more festive when a turkey is involved!) And most of these materials can be made or procured cheaply and easily. So, get ready to festoon your house for Turkey Day!

Pumpkins & gourds

Pumpkins make an easy seasonal centerpiece. Gather mini pumpkins or gourds of various colors and sizes on a platter. Consider adding pomegranates and other seasonal fruits for visual interest.

Filling a tall clear glass vase with acorns, pecans, and other mixed nuts in shells adds an autumnal touch that really makes a big statement in smaller areas.

Tabletop décor
Make your table presentation “instagrammable” and serve your food in trendy dinnerware with the main focus on the food. Stay away from crowding the table with too many flowers and decorations that will ultimately get in the way.

Change out your colors 
Sometimes all it takes is some slight color changes around the home to make it feel like the holidays. Add a few fall colored throws around the couch, some candles in the living room, bathrooms and mantle then find some pine cones in the backyard or purchase them at the dollar store to place around your fireplace or on your coffee table.

Feathers & flowers
Large feathers can make an interesting display. Add them to flower arrangements of seasonal mums and sunflowers to add a uniquely autumnal look to the bouquets.

Hosting Thanksgiving dinner? Setting a fine holiday table doesn’t have to break the bank.

  • Flat sheets make great tablecloths. For napkins, buy bandannas. Both are cheap, washable, and come in a million different colors.
  • Need dishes or glassware? Check your local thrift shop. You won’t believe what you’ll find there!
  • For place cards, cut up index cards, and glue on fake autumn leaves. Or attach name tags to mini pumpkins, pears or pomegranates.
  • Finally, candles. The more candles the better. They create a wonderful mood.

I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder.
