Thanksgiving Decor Inspiration

Written by Michaela MacBlake Matthews

As we move through the holiday season, Thanksgiving is about half as much about decorating as Halloween, and about fifteen thousand times more about the food! That doesn’t mean we can’t have plenty of fun with it, though! As we give thanks this year and celebrate the falling leaves after another summer of life experiences, we’ll be crafting up a storm and keeping our families, and homes, nice and warm!

Kantha Quilt And Pillow Cover Set

Orange Kantha Quilt Blanket and Pilllows Fall Decor

It’s starting to get chilly outside! But inside? This Orange Symphony Kantha Quilt has got you covered. The warm orange doesn’t just match the falling leaves, it also adds a little extra liveliness to the room as we adjust to the shorter days! This color is sure to get the most energy going during the daytime, and fade gently into a cozy shade under the lamps at night.

Handcrafted Limited Edition Felt Ball Rug

Okay, so it’ll be another month or so before we dive into candy ribbon and sprinkles… But we can start a little early on the sweets, right? Not only is it super cute, but when the little ones come over to visit, this felt ball rug is great for adding that extra bit of snuggle! (Especially on hardwood floors.)
