Thanksgiving Mantel

Halloween will be here in a couple of days.......then Thanksgiving.........and Christmas is right around the corner!

I am so anxious to decorate for Christmas but I don't want to short change Thanksgiving!

Before photo  was my fall mantel......................and as you can see in the after photo

My Thanksgiving mantel has a lot of the sparkle you have seen before in my Christmas mantels!     I want  my Thanksgiving mantel  to be just as sparkle-y as my Christmas mantel will be! 

I've stayed true to my love of pink and white decor,    but I've added pops of orange to the family room for the Thanksgiving holiday

I made a new rag garland for my Thanksgiving mantel. 
   In the past,    I've used twinkle lights or icicle lights as the base for my rag garlands.        This year I tried a different base using a string of large clear lights      I love the vintage look of the larger lights and they are "cool lights" so they don't get hot or burn you.    (I found them at Hobby Lobby.)

The Thanksgiving mantel is filled with pink and orange roses........fall leaves.......and several pieces of grain decor.

On the hearth,   I have a white fur rug and Thanksgiving pillows.       I bought my pillows on Amazon.......very reasonable......a bundle of 4 pillow covers was $16.    

I added some Thanksgiving prints to the frames on each side of the fireplace......

And here's the other side of the fireplace.......

I decorated the coffee table for Thanksgiving too.......

I think this faux bird is a Pheasant.....not sure.....could be wrong!

I put the 3rd Thanksgiving pillow on the love seat and the 4th one is on the sofa.     I'll share that side of the family room later!

Til next time......
