Giving thanks for the fall trends “ from page.11 bronze and copper, as well as chevron patterns. All of these colours are ones they see continuing into the winter season as well. Gathering your own leaves to decorate the Thanksgiving table can be a great activity for kids and adults alike. Hitting your local park and choosing the perfect leaves to make a centrepiece (perhaps mixed with some feathers, chestnuts or acorns) can become a family tradition. Just make sure to give them a rinse first to remove any bugs or dirt. Another great idea for the kids is to unroll a length of butcher paper on the table, provide some coloured pencils or crayons, and let them go to town making a tablecloth or placemats. The grocery store can also be a good source for decorations, including fall flowers (your local market will be able to advise on what’s growing in your area), pumpkins and other gourds. “We’re also seeing unique one-of-a-kind decor as a hit this fall,” says Beatty. “Each piece tells its own story while being part of the bigger style story in the room.” If you’re looking for something a bit more time-consuming, consider taking some tissue paper in your favourite fall colours, wrapping clear glass vases or candleholders and securing the edges of the paper with clear tape to make an elegant addition to your tables or fireplace mantel. Whatever your style or budget, decorating for Thanksgiving doesn’t need to be complicated. A bit of creativity and some inspiration goes a long way towards making your home glow. Spending some time on sites such as Pintrest and Tumblr will garner tons of ideas. Perhaps you’ll become your neighbourhood Martha Stewart!
Among the popular fall colours this year will be earth tones such as browns and bronze, and rich jewel tones including deep purple and orange. Making your own Thanksgiving centrepiece can be as easy as gathering some leaves, or as complicated as your imagination allows.
