Get Thanksgiving-inspired Invitations

Thanksgiving is all about pumpkins, autumn leaves, turkeys, a pilgrim’s hat, corn and so much more. And what better way to start the excitement than sending out cute and creative Thanksgiving invitations? We have tons of free printable invitations for you to choose from!  You can even jazz it up by decorating your envelope with actual leaves or use pumpkin-shaped stickers to seal the envelope. Maybe even have your guests come dressed up according to the theme! Let your creativity go wild and you’re sure to get your guests excited.

Thanksgiving Decorations

Setting the Scene with Thanksgiving Decorations is a great way to get into the spirit. Since the turkey’s in the oven, it’s time to transform your home into a festive fall wonderland. Start by decking the halls with autumn-inspired decor, like leaf garlands, pumpkin centerpieces, and cornucopias filled with fake fruit. Don’t forget to scatter some colorful fall leaves and mini scarecrows around the room for that extra touch of whimsy. And of course, no Thanksgiving celebration is complete without a turkey-shaped piñata hanging from the ceiling. Let the decorations do the talking and get your guests in the festive spirit as soon as they step through the door.



Thanksgiving is all about the oranges, the yellows and the browns. You can have an orange-coloured table cover with beige placements and gold cutlery. For napkins, creatively fold them into the shape of an autumn leaf! For coasters, go for wood to give that authentic and autumn feel. You can use mini pumpkins as place cards for arranged seating. There’s also a lot of items from outside you can use as decorations, too: pinecones, acorns, twigs and branches, and even berries. Use these to your advantage to create a decorative dining area.

Thanksgiving Food and Drinks

Turkey is definitely the star of the show, so you’ve got to prepare that one first! Roasted turkey is the most common, but you can also serve your turkey baked, smoked, grilled or fried, whichever you like. Fill up your turkey with loads of stuffing to give it more flavour.
