Now that November is here and the Halloween decorations are packed away we’re in what I call the “calm before the storm”..the few weeks in which I can enjoy the change of pace nestled in between two over-the-top holidays! I thoroughly enjoy both Halloween AND Christmas…but have to admit that I also love the quiet break between them! I still decorate for Thanksgiving…but it’s often with sparse displays of pumpkins and gourds and not a lot of fanfare! And while my Thanksgiving decor is normally minimal, this year I decided it might be time to change it up a bit–not with quantity but color! With the help of some simple DIY projects and easy treats & decorations, I added some holiday fun to my dining room that I can build on as Thanksgiving Day approaches! I’m so excited to share these colorful and EASY ideas!
