The food isn’t the only thing we love about Thanksgiving, it’s the whole feel of the season! And we think that festive warmth should be felt all over the home. Let your home be a feast for the eyes as well with these easy, fun and festive decorative tips from Unique Home Building.
Warm and Natural Colors. Trade in those blue curtains for a rich forest or olive green. Toss a burnt orange or rich burgundy throw blanket on the couch! Rich and warm fall colors easily bring the cozy ambience of the season into the home. For other accents, go with gold instead of silver. Gold has the feeling of fire and goes great with the color of falling leaves.
Flowers on the Table.

A simple flower arrangement will add height to your table and can be achieved in a matter of minutes. Go out to your garden and snip some greenery as your base then add flowers, berries and branches! Keep it simple. Add an elegant runner to draw the eye to the center of the table. Leaves can be used as name tags or simply an accent. Finish off your table display by adding a fresh sprig of rosemary to each white plate adding a nice contrast against the leaf.
Candles Around the Home.
Candle centerpiece. Candles of various height can be a great centerpiece for Thanksgiving. You most likely already have them in your home scattered in various rooms. Gather them all and add plain white candles or festive fall colors such as oranges, reds and browns. Another option for the minimalist is to have a gold or white plate with a neat row of 5 white or chocolate brown candles along the middle.
Nature on the Mantel. Find some tall and skinny vases or glass cups and fill them to different heights with cranberries and acorns; you can also use different fall colored beads and layer them as desired. Add in various types of pumpkins, squash and gourds. Place orange and spice fragranced candles on either ends to complete the look.
