The first thing you need to know about Thanksgiving is that there is in fact a color pallet that you should follow. Thanksgiving is a holiday that happens during the fall/autumn season. This means that traditionally it follows fall colors. Therefore you should look into decorating your home with colors like orange, green, and red. See, it isn’t far off from Christmas decorations. Now that you have your color pallet, you should know what type of decorations you should look for. You may be surprised to know that there are actually a wide variety of Thanksgiving decorations that you can purchase.

This also means that you can allow your creativity to run wild. The first decoration you can look into would be a turkey. Now we aren’t talking about an actual turkey.
