Create a Welcoming Fall Entryway

When Thanksgiving guests enter your home, the first space they see should be both beautiful and inviting. Elevate the seasonal feel of your entryway with a warm fall arrangement that is both natural and elegant.

    Warm and Welcoming

    Natural elements, the warm tones of burnished wood, tarnished silver and a touch of gold make this fall entry arrangement inviting and interesting. An antique beadboard door hung horizontally provides a rustic, primitive backdrop.

    Rustic Meets Refined

    A slightly tarnished silver champagne bucket holds natural, dried twigs collected during a stroll outdoors. Mixing fancier pieces with the humble provides an excellent visual contrast. A handmade \"merci\" clay tag is hung from the bucket with twine to hint at the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Thanksgiving Entry Arrangement with Chalkboard

    Custom Greetings

    A homemade chalkboard is inserted in an antique wooden frame as a place to write autumn greetings, song lyrics, poems or verses. It can be easily made by cutting a piece of Masonite to size and painting it with two coats of chalkboard paint.

    Pests Can Be Pretty

    Pinecones and seedpods that litter yards in the fall can be gathered and used as part of your seasonal decor. Collect pods and cones and allow them to dry in a basement or garage for several days before using.

  • Dried Hydrangeas

    Dried vs. Fresh

    Fresh flowers are beautiful but they can be expensive and need to be replaced every few days. Late-summer hydrangea blooms can be dried and used throughout the fall season and beyond.

    Moss Isn't Just for Spring

    A small acorn squash is surrounded by a bed of reindeer moss to keep it steady and add fluffy texture. Mosses can also be used to make topiaries and to simply fill wood or silver bowls.

    Hit the Produce Aisle

    Shop your local grocer's produce aisle for fall fruits and vegetables like acorn squash, pears and apples. Display them until they're perfectly ripened and then enjoy with a meal and replace with fresh produce.

  • Rustic Fall Vignette

    Fringes and Feathers

    A scrap of burlap fabric is unraveled around the edges and used as a casual runner in this centerpiece. Guinea-fowl feathers were collected from a local farm and put on display. Feathers can also be purchased at craft stores and look especially beautiful in vases or fashioned into wreaths.

    Spell It Out

    Use gold-leafed resin letters to spell out a greeting or announce the season. Letters made of metal, chipboard or wood would also look fitting in an autumn display.
