Since Halloween is officially over, we can all start looking towards the next holiday circled on the calendar, Thanksgiving. After all the work it took to make your house Halloween ready, you may be wondering how you can decorate again before Christmas. Today, we are talking about small ways you can transition your home correctly from Halloween to Thanksgiving without doing too much work.
Get Rid of Carved Pumpkins
If you have any pumpkins around your house that aren’t carved or don’t look like jack-o-lanterns, feel free to leave them up for the remainder of fall. Uncarved pumpkins are perfect for Thanksgiving. So, try to buy multiple pumpkins next year. Some that you can carve for fun, and some that you can leave up until the end of November.
Ghost, Ghouls, Zombies, Got To Go
Take down any decorations that are too blatantly spooky. Like cobwebs, tombstones, ghosts, etc. Replace these creepy crawlies with scarecrows or turkeys. Even a festive banner could go a long way. And, many craft stores have makeshift pilgrims and Indians that you may be able to put around or outside your house.
Keep The Coloring
Hopefully, you incorporated colors like orange, red, green, brown, and yellow in your decorations as you decorated for Halloween. Just make sure that if anything is too black and orange, you tuck it away for next year.
Turkeys are, of course, the mascot for Thanksgiving, so don’t be afraid to have them all around your house. If you have small children, you can even make turkeys together that you can put around.
Now that fall is officially in swing, get candles that reflect the changing seasons. These would include pumpkin spice, apple crisp, harvest, spice, and other scents. Nothing is going to issue in the new season like new smells.
As you can see, there are many small things you can do that will help you get ready for Thanksgiving at your house. For more tips on decorating your house for fall, check out our article here.
