If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, it may seem like there’s a lot that needs to be done in so little time. But in the midst of prepping, take a moment to pause and look for ways to simplify your area. Whether it’s arranging candles on the mantel or throwing a cozy blanket on the couch, making small changes will have a big impact. Take a look at these five easy ideas to help you get started.
- Make a candle-lit centerpiece.
If you don’t have candles to choose from, it’s time to stock up! Arrange a set of candles of different heights in a bed of leaves, small pine cones or branches covered in lichen. The best part is, you can find many of these items in your backyard.
- Organize your cabinets.
If you’re having guests over, take time to organize the plates, bowls and serving platters you’re going to use. You may find that smallwares are missing or there are a few chipped plates. Checking your dining sets early will help give a sense of calm come Turkey day.
- Hang a decorative wreath.
Welcome your guests with an easy fall decoration. Wreaths compliment any room, so don’t limit them to just the front door. They can also be hung from mailboxes, walls or serve as tabletop decorations.
- Throw on seasonal accent pillows.
Make it feel like the holidays by adding some accent pillows in deep red and gold hues. Have the living room look more inviting by dimming the lights and sparking up the fireplace.
- Stock your pantry.
Making Thanksgiving dinner is a day-long process, so make sure that your pantry is organized so that everything is easy to find. Take an inventory count of what you have and what you’ll need to purchase. This will help you avoid the last-minute shopping rush.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it can be easy to lose sight of the basic tasks. By organizing your space now, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy yourself by the time Thanksgiving arrives.
