Happy Canadian Thanksgiving friends! What are your plans for this long weekend? I don’t like to spend a lot on seasonal decor so I am always thinking “What can I buy that can be used year after year?”. This is how I decorated for fall this year…
This Thanksgiving felt a little different than usual. We usually get together with just Ryans side of the family and have a quiet meal just with our own little family, but this year we ended up with a funeral over the Thanksgiving long weekend. So with a houseful of my family staying with us, we fit in a funeral and another family gathering on my side. It has been so special to just be together while we cried and laughed together.
My mantle decor stays somewhat the same all year long with a few simple adjustments each season. I added a couple of cute pumpkins I painted from the dollar store. Last year I painted real ones but by the time the season was coming to a close, they were all getting moldy and I had a small mess to clean up;)
I LOVE this fall sign! I got it from Dreamdesigndiy. It was super easy and cheap to make and is full of impact!
I tried to walk away from this cute pumpkin pillow a few times, but I kept going back and just couldn’t leave it the third time I went to admire it from @pieroneimports . They had great sales going on, so it became absolutely irresistible! It was a great find and I can pull it out year after year. I think if you could find or make a cover for a few seasonal pillows, you could change them out season after season without having to store them somewhere in between.
The table is set with real baby pumpkins and fresh pears from my friends’ farms on a burlap table runner. I would have loved a few large white pumpkins as well but didn’t get that far. The plates are a great memory from Grandma. The napkins pull it all together from @pieroneimports
