Making My House Look More Thanksgiving-ish

Husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time ever.  We have a large group of people coming over, so we were able to dole out assignments to spread out the work.  One of the tasks I took on was making our house holiday ready.  You know I love to decorate for Halloween and Christmas, but I only had a few things for Thanksgiving.  After multiple trips to Party City and Crate and Barrel, among other places, I think I finally have finally achieved a festive feeling.  Here are some of the fun items I stumbled across while I was putting our decor together.  I only ended up purchasing a few of these things, but I really liked all of these ideas.  If you are wondering, Leaves is one of the best smelling Bath & Body Works candles I have ever smelled.  

Are you into Thanksgiving decor?  Are you hosting or going to be a guest?

I can't wait to see pics of the final look! I wish we had a Bath & Body Works here xo

Lovely picks! Especially the pumpkin casserole and the turkey candle holder.
Part of me would love to have a Crate & Barrel and Bath and Bodyworks over here too......but another part of me is RELIEVED that we don´t (would be hard on my savings :)

Can´t wait to see the results! xoxo

I'm hosting as well and been running around this weekend looking for stuff as well. West Elm is having a 20% off tableware sale if you still don't have enough stuff. I've got to grab napkins and I think I'll be done. I have some ideas in mind for crafts but if they don't get done because I have to make 5 dishes, then they don't get done. Whew~! I think I'm stressing myself out just from commenting on your blog :)

My best friend got me that turkey apron for my birthday (since I'm making Thanksgiving dinner, again, this year)! I put it on and my 4 year old daughter told me I "look like a turkey!" LOL!

Are you going to post your final decorations? I'd love to see. If I was choosing I would not leave the store without the pumpkin casserole and the straw turkeys.
