Thanksgiving is next week! Can you believe it? I don’t know about you, but this year has flown by. The holidays are about to be in full swing and the last stretch of the year is well on its way. With so much to do and so little time, we are here to give you a little helping hand. We celebrated Thanksgiving this week with our Gabriel Builders family and it was so much fun. We are so blessed to be surrounded by such a great team!
Now it is time to start preparing for Thanksgiving with friends and family. If you find yourself hosting a Thanksgiving meal this year, it can be overwhelming. Not only do you have to cook, but you want your space to look amazing as well. We’ve got some easy tips and trick that will help you spruce up your dining room area for the occasion!
One easy way to add new life to your eating area is to dress up your lamp shades. If you have a simple drum shade that needs some freshening up, add ribbon around the edges of it. You can get creative here and use a pop of color or keep it neutral and simple. This is always an easy thing to switch out for other occasions as well. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to change it up completely, add some new lighting fixtures!
If you find yourself with some good time on your hands, then why not repaint? This will instantly make your room look brand new without having to change the decor too much, if at all. If you have leftover paint from another room in the house, then you don’t even have to buy more!
Slipcovers are a great way to bring some sophistication to your dining room table. It is an easy fix and will transform the feel of the space in a matter of minutes. If you find yourself accommodating more people than you planned for, go eclectic! Mix and match your seating and decor. It will feel more homey and gives the perfect vibe for holidays with family and friends.
No matter what you do, make sure that you love it. If you are confident in your space, it will show. This Thanksgiving will be one for the books.
