Thanksgiving may be all about food, friends and family but it can also be about decor.

For many, this year’s celebrations will mark the return of Thanksgiving dinners of old, with many families reuniting around the table. From warm fall colors to foliage and pumpkins, the season offers many ways to embrace its natural aesthetics.

Good Housekeeping has a list of ways you can invite the spirit of the holiday and the season into your home. Here are a couple of decorating tips.

A fall-themed wreath

Wreaths are not just for Christmas. You can use a fall-themed door ornament to welcome guests into your home. Country Living suggests a DIY pinecone version. You can make it by wrapping a 16-inch wreath form with burlap and ribbon and looping a piece around it for hanging. Use the pine cones as-is for a rustic look or paint them in fall colors using acrylic paint. Brush the tips in matte Mod Podge and sprinkle with gold and copper glitter for fall flair. Let it dry and wrap a 10-inch floral wire around the base of each pine cone. Then, twist tie around the wreath to secure it while layering and overlapping the pine cones.

Seasonal flair at the table

Take your dinner table up a notch by placing a festive runner on it. Don’t be afraid to embrace the farmhouse feel, either.

“Instead of using a traditional table runner, why not use something that is a bit more out of the box,” Leah Ashley of Living with Leah told SF Gate. She noted using burlap is more affordable than buying one from the store. Pair it with blues and greens for a complementary look.
