1. Create a neutral color scheme

A neutral color scheme fits in well with most home decor styles, whether formal or casual.  A neutral palate also helps achieve a very natural look, if that is what you are trying to achieve.

2. Incorporate fruit, vegetables or herbs into your decor

There are so many fruits and vegetables that coordinate so nicely with fall decor.  Additionally, this can be an inexpensive way to achieve drama without breaking the bank.  They also add nice texture and can be reused….bonus!

3. Use traditional Thanksgiving elements like pumpkins and turkeys

I am sure this seems obvious, so here I am sharing some of my favorite table settings that include pumpkins and/or turkeys.

The browns and rusts work together so well here.

The abundance and varieties of pumpkins really make this look.  Be sure to notice the opened books being used as a base for the place settings. So creative!

The turkeys here add so much fall texture and color and the tones for the color palette of the place settings.  This is one of my table settings from last year…it was actually the “kids table”.

4. Utilize natural elements that could be found naturally outdoors

These natural elements could include pine cones, antlers, cinnamon sticks, magnolia leaves, moss, feathers, leaves with changing colors or tree branches.

For this fall centerpiece for my island, I cut this foliage off of one of my bushes in my yard right as the colors where changing.  It added great texture and warmth in my white kitchen.
