34 Thanksgiving Ideas: Decor, Gifts and More

I love Thanksgiving. Like, LOVE love it. I love all the food. I love gathering together with friends and family. I love the laziness of the day (spoken like someone who isn’t ever in charge of the bird, am I right?) and I love the climate we get in the Mid Atlantic. Cold enough to light a fire, but not so cold that you can’t go for a walk. Here are some fun ideas I found on Etsy to make your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving celebration more beautiful. Or funny. We do funny around here too.

Thanksgiving Wreath Ideas

I love a great wreath. I have a very narrow distance between my storm door and my front door, so I can rarely hang a wreath – it has to be quite narrow and modern. Which means I have serious FOMO on these wreath ideas. A friend suggested I ditch the storm door, but (1) dogs and (2) that would break the HOA rules.

Set the Thanksgiving Table

Admittedly, I want the Thanksgiving food on the table. I want as easy access to the potatoes and gravy as possible. But I also know that some people keep the food on a buffet and the table beautiful.
