Thanksgiving Table Decorations – Affordable!

It’s the final day of October. Some folks may call it “Halloween”, but I call it a night on my sofa dedicated to planning out my holiday season on Pinterest. I am sure once I have a family of my own I will enjoy Halloween more, but until then… Halloween who?! ::turns up Michael Buble’s Christmas Album::

Needless to say, I am SO excited to kick off the holidays. Not gonna lie, I’d be putting up my tree this week if it wasn’t for Parent Teacher Conferences (aka: 13 hour teacher work days all week).

So, in the meantime I will give some love to one of my favorite holidays that kick off the holiday season: Thanksgiving.

I love Thanksgiving! I love the family, the food, the feeling… it might just be my favorite holiday! To me, Thanksgiving is the kick off to the Christmas season, but I get it when some people like to keep it separate. With that being said, there are so many decorating options to try! You can use traditional fall colors, introduce some wintry Christmas elements or even keep things fresh and neutral. Hey, as long as there is food, right?!

Here are some of my favorite, affordable Thanksgiving styles courtesy of  (When all fails or you don’t want to leave the house… Amazon, people!!)

Don’t hate me, but it’s October 27th and I am SO ready to deck the halls with boughs of everything cozy and Christmas. Halloween was great as a kid, but now it just feels like a big old speed bump slowing us all down from where we really want to go. That, and I am an elementary school teacher, so pleeeaase let this sugar rushed week just end! You can put the kit kats on my desk though…

Now is the best time to do a little holiday preparation shopping. I mean, I want to be rocking around the Christmas tree come Thanksgiving weekend. Last year’s items are on sale and things don’t seem too picked over yet! Plus, I am loving the farmhouse, hygge, rustic and class vibes that I am finding.

My favorite part of decorating? Throw pillows. They just pull the entire living room together and embellish the sofa with that cozy feel. Luckily, Amazon and tons of other stores have amazing prices on throw pillows and covers!

Scandinavian Christmas Decor

Maybe it’s the “hygge” or the “fika”, but there is definitely something to be said about a Scandinavian Christmas. With the holiday being centered around coziness, happiness, family traditions and faith, the decor really just needs to remain simple and fresh. From geometric shapes, natural greenery, rustic elements and enough candles to make your home glow for miles, you can easily have yourself a merry “hygge” Christmas.

What’s hygge? (pronounced: hyoo-gah). Don’t worry, I was one of the last ones to find out about this trend too. Hygge is a Danish word that describes the quality of coziness that allows you to feel content. Sipping hot coffee with my fiancé by a crackling fire with my snoring beagle snuggled at my side. That’s my kind of hygge.

Similar to hygge, the Swedish have their fika (pronounced fee-kah) which literally means “to have coffee”. The deeper meaning behind “fika” is that people should set aside time every day to find contentment and coziness for their own well-being. This could mean having coffee and pastries with your friends while enjoying a good laugh. 

It’s no coincidence that Scandinavian countries are among the top 10 happiest nations in the world. They just get it.

For me, I love how they center their holiday around being happy and cozy with loved ones. I am so over the greed and manufactured joy that some mistake for Christmas. It’s time we all detox our weary holiday spirits and let in the “hygge” vibes of a Scandinavian Christmas. Glögg included. (spiced mulled wine… and it’s amazing!)

Luckily, we don’t have to travel abroad to get our hands on some great Scandinavian pieces! Amazon really knows the way to our hearts!
