Give Thanks: Part 2

Thanksgiving Bowl Fillers by RyensMarketplace

Since my aunt has always been the host of Thanksgiving I've never had to think about how I might decorate my home for this holiday. I think the decorating would be fun and there are so many talented artists out there who would be happy to have their art shared in our homes. Since I'm always looking for new ways to show my celebration for an event or holiday, I'd like to feature a few artists and crafters who create modern decor inspired by traditional themes.

Home Decor
Begin the holiday mood right at the front door with a holiday yarn wreath from Sisterly Designs.

Make your guests feel welcome when they enter your home with a sign from Army Mom of Twins that will invite them to dine at the table.

Table Decor
Why use paper napkins when you can buy such cute handmade ones that can be washed and used over and over. I use cloth napkins in my home to help the environment, but also to save money in the long run. Washing is easy and it's not necessary to iron them either. Here are some napkins that fit the Thanksgiving theme by the use of color.

And for the kids table these hand print turkey napkins from Thoroughly Mod Mom will go along with the children's artwork used as centerpieces. (At least that's what our mom did with when we were young).

Spread some Fall colors across your table, literally! Leaf Decor preserves leaves and has done a wonderful job of creating the perfect way to decorate your table with real leaves in a variety of beautiful Fall colors.

If you are super fancy and want to add name cards to each person's place setting, these beautiful place card holders made by Karas Vineyard Wedding add a bit of elegance to a normally more rustic table setting (or vise versa in the case of a wedding).

 For either the pre-dinner snacking, or for use at the table, be sure to have some Fall themed coasters for everyone to use. These glass covered coasters made by Arthur and Olive appear to be very well made and add to that rustic yet modern look.

I've never been one to go along with the bird trends, but Thanksgiving is about the turkey, and I just couldn't resist this paper bird made by Scrapafrass. It could work so well on its own or in multiples.

Looking for something a little more durable and reusable than paper? Try wood blocks. These blocks by kanchaser are so versatile they will look great with modern decor as well as traditional decor.

We can't forget about the kids. This turkey lollipop holder from Masters Craftsman will have your kids excited to sit at their table. It even includes the suckers!

Hopefully I haven't overwhelmed you with all of these ideas. I feel like I could go on all day finding such unique fun items for Thanksgiving. Although I touched on it in my last post, my next "Give Thanks" post will focus more on the food.
