Here are Autumn and Thanksgiving Decor Ideas that our family traditionally enjoys. These include our enameled pumpkin pot for hearty soups, faux Fall leaves and pumpkins. The only new decor items are fresh candles to add to existing battery-operated ones. And Fall scenes as a screensaver on our television makes things especially cozy.
It’s Five Faves time with Cindy and Annie! This time it’s my favorite Thanksgiving decor ideas, a comfortable yet pulled-together Fall outfit, and more!
1. Faux Fall Leaves
I love the look of real Fall branches, just not the mess. I bought these colorful branches last year (already had the twigs) and stored them in a plastic tub in the garage with other Autumn decor.
2. Enameled Pumpkin Pot
This enameled pot by Staub was worth the investment. We bring it out every year and use it during October and November. It’s great for soups and stews.
The orange gives a pop of color to the neutral background.

3. Autumn And/Or Thanksgiving Table Setting
This tablescape with texture can last through Thanksgiving. The blue stoneware shallow dishes are on sale right now. We don’t iron the table linens for a more relaxed feel.

4. Fall Candles, Scented And Battery Operated On The Mantel
I filled the bottoms of tall hurricane candles (bought when we lived in Paris 22 years ago) with the little pumpkin pods that I pullout every Fall.
The battery-operated flicker candles are set to come on each evening.
The great smelling amber Fall candle is on sale. The wax is self-consuming. It’s good quality. “Scent notes includes: Palo Santo, vetiver, incense, vanilla, patchouli and amber.”

Your guests can listen to this soothing music or put the television on mute and put your own party tunes on your speakers. Wouldn’t this be nice to have on during Thanksgiving dinner?
5. Autumn Outfit Of The Week
This dress is on backorder but I ordered it anyway and it says it will be here in six days. It’s a flattering fit. I ordered it a size up to be a little looser around my middle.
The Eileen Fisher blazer/jacket is a bit pricey but it’s a classic that will dress up jeans or any outfit. I love that it is unlined so more comfortable than a structured blazer but still looks sharp. I ordered a Petite small. It covers my rear and is washable!
