A Little Deco for the Thanksgiving Holiday

I added a turkey and some pumpkins to the mantel.  

I set a wreath below the pumpkins and tipped this one a bit.

I realized this turkey's coloring would work well with the big candle holders so it was chosen to set up there this year.

Instead of stripping the mantel I just added to it and kept my center floral arrangement.  

I'm happy with it- just enough to feel festive!

On the big wood top dividing the rooms I set out my pheasants which have been on the mantel many times.  The sun managed to shine if only for a bit the day I snapped these pics!  It's been rainy and gloomy!

I found the candle at TJMaxx...and it smells so good!  I loved that it had a copper top and the leaves decorating it.  The smell is just a nice aroma of classic scents of fall.

I centered my McKenzie Childs turkey and accented it with a few more of my McKenzie Childs pumpkins.  All of these pumpkins were seen recently on my Halloween Etagere I posted "here

I found the table topper in Frankenmuth last summer.  I've been waiting to put it out!

It's missing something though!

I added a lantern.   I've got all my flameless candles running around the house on timers.  Since it's getting darker sooner I tend to use them much more!

I'm joining:


  1. When you're gone all of October, it's hard to remember that it is time to take down the Halloweenies and replace them with the turkeys! This is just beautiful, Liz. Very nice indeed (and a wonderful reminder, too!)

  2. I really like how you tipped the lovely pumpkins on your mantel, Liz. Your McKenzie-Child's pieces look great all about. And that table topper is a show stopper--just beautiful! It's gloomy and rainy here as well and we have our candles burning and the gas logs are on. ♥

  3. I love how all three vignettes relate to each other. It makes your rooms look so cohesive. Your choice of pumpkins and candlesticks strike just the right tone for fall.

  4. Beautiful Liz as always. I am loving seeing all the fall and Thanksgiving decor with everyone already posting Christmas. I am very organized and love being early for Christmas too but I also love to enjoy Thanksgiving and a few decorations. So I am glad a few bloggers are still decorating for Fall and Thanksgiving. It is all beautiful.
