If you regularly keep up with our blog, you know that we detailed Thanksgiving hosting tips a few weeks back. However, who has really had the time to plan their décor far in advance? If you're like most hosts, the week before Thanksgiving is when you get the bulk of your preparations done. Now that the holiday is less than 10 days away, it is time to take your decorating to the next level. Instead of leaving everything to the night before the big dinner, check out some simple style implementations you can incorporate into your home today.
- Experiment with fabrics: "You can save money by draping your table," expert interior designer Tricia Huntley tells the Washington Post. "When you drape it with fabrics, you can make it appear as big as it needs to be. You can also get funky chairs that have a lot of chicness for not a lot of cost. And make sure the walls have something on them." If you're looking for stylish materials, come into our Milwaukee fabric store. Not only are our custom fabrics great for custom curtains and drapes, they can also be used to create innovative table cloths.
- Set the mood: The timing of your Thanksgiving dinner can guide your decorating choices. If you're throwing a holiday brunch, let natural light into your dining room. However, if you have dinner later in the day you may want to incorporate candles into your décor. If your Thanksgiving dinner lasts all day, window covering allow you to let light in and out at your liking.
