Additions to Make to Your Home Before Thanksgiving

Ask anyone what their favorite holiday is and you’ll hear echoes of “Christmas,” “Thanksgiving,” and “Halloween” fill the room. The fall–winter season is easily one of the most exciting times of the year.

Once you get a good grasp on the history of Thanksgiving, you can be mindful of the pain of indigenous communities, reflect on the lives lost, and come together on the fourth Thursday of November with a more nuanced understanding of the holiday. Alongside preparing Thanksgiving dinner and practicing gratitude, give back to Native Americans by donating to indigenous-rights organizations and supporting Native-owned U.S. businesses.

In addition, make sure your space looks more fall-friendly! Here are some additions you can make to your home before Thanksgiving.   

Fall-Themed Décor

Hosting a lockdown-friendly Thanksgiving dinner? Make sure your space looks the part!

Indulge in fall-themed décor, including minimalist pumpkins and fall candles. Try to incorporate more earthy colors into your space—soft brown, white, deep green, maple orange, and auburn are all great options. Add these touches to your living room, dining hall, and interior entryway.

You can also decorate your exterior entryway to spruce up your curb! The more, the merrier. Place multi-sized pumpkins along your driveway for a gorgeous touch of fall bliss.  

Rattan and Wicker for the Win!


When it comes to getting your place Thanksgiving-ready, opting for a minimalist palette is a great way to get started. As a rule of thumb, avoid garish accessories and go for soft, simple embellishments. You’ll manage to spruce up your space without making it look overdone.

Rattan and wicker are big winners here. Not only do they add a touch of sophistication to interior spaces, but they also fit the general fall scheme like a glove. Indulge in wicker baskets and rattan bowls to enliven your home.

These minimalist accessories will also complement the dusky boldness of your black steel sliding doors, so they’re a win-win!

Modern Iron Doors


Start off slow by focusing on accessories. Once you’ve taken care of the details, shift your focus to furnishings and fixtures.

Alliteration aside, revamping furnishings and fixtures is a great way to make your home appear redone without actually redoing it.

Modern iron doors have been trending for all the right reasons this year. They’re luxurious, affordable, and timeless. If your current entry doors aren’t cutting it, replace them with iron French doors or custom iron doors to get your home Thanksgiving-ready. A pair of iron front doors will spruce up your home and increase its overall value in the long run.

Pine Cones
