Are you entertaining or being entertained for Thanksgiving? Either way, here are some great ideas for Thanksgiving decor ideas which could couple as a lovely hostess gift for the aggressive chef who insists you "only bring yourself" on Thanksgiving. I love how many of these images use fruits, vegetables and nuts from around the house and some of these can be slightly altered to be continued through the Christmas season. If centerpieces aren't your thing, the next best thing to entertaining is an awesome cocktail, so check out the 3 fall recipe drinks below.
Beautiful way to display fall nuts from BHG
Candle centerpieces using green vegetables such as artichokes, green beans, asparagus from BHG

Fruit and veggie centerpiece that could be fun to make to keep the kids and adults busy while you are cooking and you can switch and use what you have in stock. And, you can use your leftover pumpkin from Hallowee from Martha Stewart
Gather some fall foilage branches from outside, assorted gourds and you can make a festive centerpiece. You could also have this in an entryhall to greet guests, or hang place seating cards, or have little cards with hang tags to allow people to write what they are thankful for, from Martha Stewart
If a centerpiece is too much, a fun Fall themed drink will do! Have these or bring any of these to your Thanksgiving event and I am sure it will be a hit!
