Thanksgiving Décor that Works Beyond the Holiday

Thanksgiving is on the way, is your décor ready? Admittedly, Canadians have never gone all out in the Thanksgiving décor department the way they do in the US. However, many of us still enjoy making a few subtle tweaks to commemorate the season.

What that means is that our Thanksgiving décor doesn’t stay up very long, which can make it seem impractical. Thankfully, some of the best thanksgiving décor pieces are those that can be used all throughout fall and sometimes beyond. Fall colours and even something as simple as natural textures can offer a nod to our country’s celebration of harvest, without getting too holiday-specific.

Looking for inspiration or need a way to update your existing Thanksgiving décor? Here are some great additions that are in stores right now.


Wood Candlesticks – Wayfair

There has always been something welcoming about wooden candlesticks. Perhaps it’s the natural security of a light source, or the rustic charm of wooden décor. Of course, offering a warm welcome to visiting family and friends is an important part of Thanksgiving. We think that these candlesticks would be brilliant on an entryway table or perched up high on a mantle, as part of a homey, Thanksgiving vignette, or anytime of the year.


 Ontario Leaf Bowl – Bowring

Add a shot of colour and charm to all white tableware with this petite leaf-shaped dish. At 8 inches, it makes a fun dessert plate or an attractive vessel for small snacks. The burnt orange colour and leaf design makes it a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving table; however, it would still fit in on a console table or elsewhere at other times of the year.


Water Hyacinth Round Placemat – Bed Bath & Beyond

This placemat adds a striking hint of texture to your tabletop. Pair it with while plates and fall-hued linens for a subtle yet festive feel. The best part about this placemat is that it plays into the feel of thanksgiving, but can also work year-round with certain design styles.


Vintage Floral Jacquard Table Runner – Williams Sonoma

This table runner takes the theme of this post in the opposite direction. While it’s not specifically a Thanksgiving-specific tablecloth, the feel and design of the pattern suggests harvest. This runner would be welcome at your Thanksgiving Day table and as part of your cottage, farmhouse, or traditional tablescape all year-round.


Shades of Blue Birch Tree Art – Pier 1 Imports

No, a new piece of art isn’t a traditional Thanksgiving Day addition. However, if you’ve been enjoying this year’s blue Thanksgiving décor, and have been looking for some new dining room art, we believe that this lovely birch-themed piece would make a lovely addition. Think of it as more of a thanksgiving debut than a season specific decoration.
