Our home has coastal colors throughout (blues, greens, whites, browns) which can make decorating for the fall a bit difficult. Well, this year I decided to bite the bullet (or whatever the appropriate expression is) and use those colors in my holiday decor. If you’re like me and have cooler colors and need inspiration for decorating this Thanksgiving, then hopefully the small things I have done will give you the courage to step out and use the colors you love, even in this season that tends to be on the more red/orange/richer side of the color spectrum.
First, we’ll start with the mantel decor. It’s largely inspired by three of my favorite bloggers: The Nester, Thrifty Decor Chick and Kimba at A Soft Place to Land. I’ve already updated, as you can see the difference from the first picture (the current look) and this second picture (the previous look). I love both of them, but B made this cute handprint artwork at Sunday School, and since the colors went with our decor I had to add it to my coastal colors fall collection.
While decorating for the fall can be challenging when using cooler colors, I truly have enjoyed stretching myself and thinking a little bit outside of the box in celebrating this wonderful season. Happy decorating and most of all, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
