Thanksgiving this year looks very different for many of us. You might be tempted to skip the fun table decor if it's only you and the regular dinner crew, but we think just a touch of autumn here or there can brighten your mood and elevate your holiday to something special. And isn't that what we all need right now?
So give yourself something to celebrate and use these simple, DIY ideas to decorate your Thanksgiving table.
Did you buy a few too many mini pumpkins this fall because everything just felt so bleak, and surely a few more little gourds on your mantle would help? Just me? Well, no matter how many pumpkins you purchased, now is a great time to use them. Using pumpkins en masse instantly creates an autumn vibe perfect for Thanksgiving, and it requires very little work.

As autumn nears its end, night falls earlier with each passing day, and adding a bit of light to your Thanksgiving table is the perfect way to celebrate this time of year. Candles also provide a touch of magic, giving this year's dinner the spark it might be missing.

Create a Floral Arrangement
Our Autumn Box taught you how to create a perfect fall floral arrangement. Now is the time to use those skills! Buy a bunch of autumn blooms on your next trip to the store, and make something beautiful for your Thanksgiving table. We even have a blog post all about picking out the best flowers at the grocery store, so your table decor will last as long as possible.
Use Fresh Herbs
Buying fresh herbs for culinary use makes a big difference in taste, but you might not need that entire bunch of thyme for your small Thanksgiving. Use those extra herbs as decorative springs on napkins or plates. It's such a small and simple thing to add, but can elevate your holiday dinner from routine to memorable.
