Thanksgiving Mantle

By November 7, 2010Decorating, Holidays, Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a holiday that seems to be forgotten. I think all of the retailers have forgotten that there are some of us who love Thanksgiving. Other than a few paper plates and napkins, there just isn’t much in the way of decorations.

I have always used most of my Fall Decorations and added a few Turkeys here and there. Adding a fruit filled Cornucopia is also is very festive.

I’ve brought back some of the decorations I used on the Fall Mantle, and added a few extras.

 

Since I already had the Fall Garland made, and love it, I decided to add it back on, after taking down the Halloween Mantle.

I added a piece of fabric, and then started with the larger items. First was the Cornucopia (The Pumpkin King’s feet) basket, I filled it with a fresh pineapple, apples, peaches, plums, lemons, limes and a gourds. I bought all those items at Walmart in the produce section.

Then Mr. Scarecrow took a seat at the other end holding a pumpkin with a corn stalk (made from raffia paper) behind him.

You may recognize the hurricane from the Fall Buffet decorations, I filled it with fresh leaves that I cut from a tree in our front yard.

Then filled in with a little turkey that is holding Indian Corn, and a few more gourds and pumpkins.

Don’t forget…the Virtual Progressive Thanksgiving Dinner starts tomorrow!
