I love to decorate our home in rich tones, after a playful Halloween decoration came down I found these pretty glass Christmas tree ornaments at a flea market last year. (Tip- they were labeled from the Christmas Tree Shop as glass ball ornaments and were priced 20 for $2.99. So even if you must go to buy them, they are really pretty and look more expensive then they really are!)

They seemed perfect to use for my dining room for the Thanksgiving table since they were in gold tones and were in the designs I use every fall- pine cones and nut designs.

They are already pre-strung on nice thin gold ribbon so I just looped them onto a hoop and tied it to my existing chandelier.

You could even string less on the hoop and keep some to tie around your dinner napkins or add to a centerpiece.

I think they look pretty!

A simple decoration for Thanksgiving is cloves stuck in an orange. I did this last year with my children and they loved it. Whole cloves have a pointy end that can easily stick into the orange.

A turkey that lights up for great conversations and giggles. Prop the pumpkin on an angle on the platter so the top points up at a 45-degree slant if it doesn't balance easily.

I like to take my children walking in our neighborhood. On our walks we find beautiful leaves and seed pods that have fallen from the trees.

Tie a length of nice holiday ribbon to apple stems and suspend them from the ceiling or in an archway or doorway from thumbtacks. Make sure though, that they hang higher than the tallest person's head, who lives with you or visits, so they don't get bumped!

I want to start planning for next year and decorations for thanksgiving are few and far between. Actually Christmas just seems to jump right in there without any ideas for thanksgiving. I crochet and am thinking about starting to create some designs just for thanksgiving. I'll try to convert any suggestions you give me to crochet patterns as well as using your original ideas, too.

Make garland out of the fallen leaves to hang around the door. Just hot glue them on a piece of rope. Collect when the leaves start changing colors. A wicker basket of pine cones also makes a nice centerpiece.
