4 Helpful tips to spruce up your home’s Fall Feeling from Merwin Farm and Home

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before, the Holidays can be a stressful time of year. In between accommodating friends and family, preparing a Thanksgiving dinner with a little something for everyone, and planning a holiday to remember, if you’re playing host this year, the Holidays can become overwhelming quickly. Luckily, when it comes to Holiday home decor, DIY options can make decorating your home this season fun and affordable. Here are four ways to beautifully accent your Thanksgiving table that are quick and easy!

  1. Setting the Table
    Get creative with your table setting! Instead of using a typical place card for your Thanksgiving seating arrangement, cover your table with kraft paper and hand letter your guests’ names onto it.
  2.  Recycle and Reuse
    Get all you can out of the last few weeks of pumpkins and gourds. Carve out an unusual pumpkin or squash and drop a floral centerpiece into it. Or use your leftover pumpkins and gourds along with greens, berries, and branches to create a beautiful table runner. You can even add a few candles for a more intimate vibe. Texture is everything!
  3. Scented SWAG
    Our favorite DIY fall craft has to be scented velvet pumpkins! You can add these sweet little pumpkins in your décor or hand them out as parting gifts for your guests. They will treasure them for years!
  4. Remember What’s Important
    And the last but most important tip—always be grateful no matter what your decorations look like. It’s your family and friends gathered around the table who really make your home shine
