Hello friends, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! Can you believe it’s nearly here? I love everything about Thanksgiving! Yes, everything! Amber, my sweet friend and the lovely blogger ( and TFT co-hostess) at Follow the Yellow Brick Home , has invited me to join a wonderful group of bloggers to share our posts for her We Gather Together Thanksgiving Blog Hop. I’m happy to be included, thank you, Amber. If you have hopped over from Belle Bleu Interiors thank you for hopping over and welcome to Katherines Corner. I’ve already shared my Thanksgiving table HERE. So today it is my pleasure to share some of the Thanksgiving decor in our home.
I kept things to a minimum this year, with little touches made in a minimalist style. Well… except for the turkey trio, so let’s start there.
Before I decorated the buffet I had a minimalist approach to Thanksgiving decor.
Then I changed my mind and filled it with Thanksgiving decor.
The big turkey in the middle of the trio was a birthday gift from a dear friend. Being born in November made the turkey hunt a bit easier. But, I’d been looking for a couple of years for a “big ‘ole turkey” and missed out on the sales, etc. every time. My friend knew I had tried and failed to find the elusive big turkey for the Thanksgiving table. She found this one and stashed it away for my birthday. It was a lovely surprise and such a thoughtful thing to do.
The pilgrim turkeys and the feather turkey are both handmade. They fit in quite well with this bit of Thanksgiving decor.
I have Thanksgiving decor on the kitchen windowsill. Thank you hubby for the little pumpkins. The glittery one is from our daughter ( you can enter her giveaway below). I have the Jim Shore kitchen angels out every day and I thought the simple addition of little pumpkins and baby boos made it all feel like Thanksgiving.
A quick turn to the tv room and you can see I have a simple display of Thanksgiving decor above the television.
A peek around the corner brings us to the “Christmas tree room”. Oh my, that makes our house sound so fancy, giggle. It isn’t. We live in a modest home but it has a “Bonus room”. It’s a tiny room you see when you enter our house. Some homeowners have them created into den’s, offices or piano rooms. We built this house to sell it ( 15 years ago) so we didn’t want to enclose it then the new homeowner could make that decision. Okay…that’s a whole lot of information about this room. So, yes, we put the Christmas tree in this room. So it is the Christmas tree room.
I love this little wooden pumpkin! The smooth wood and the wonderful striation throughout the wood make it so unique, and perfect for Thanksgiving decor.
I display my blue Turkish bowl on the mantle a lot. I simply added the blue pumpkin, squirrel figurine and a blue basket with a baby boo inside.
Some candles placed inside the rarely used fireplace make a lovely display this time of year.
The most important thing I want to share with you is this simple thankful photo. I used the pumpkins hubby bought me here too. Because being thankful is what Thanksgiving is all about. I mean, “thank” is already in the name, right? I know it’s a bit early but I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Please tell me about your Thanksgiving decor, do you do a lot or a little?
