Leaf Themed Thanksgiving Decor

There are several ways to decorate for Thanksgiving, but today I’m inspired by fall leaves. Really, what says Fall time better than leaves?

Set the tone for your leaf-inspired Thanksgiving with these Fall Tree invitations. Incorporate fall leaves into your Thanksgiving table decor with these lovely place card holders. I couldn’t decide if I likes the classic maple leaf place card holder or the fall leaf tea light holder better, which would make a great favor as well. You can use place card holders {like these great leaf ones from Favors In The City} as place card holders, to identify food on a buffet or dessert table, and also to give away as favors.

I am also in love with this leaf bowl which would make such a statement on your Thanksgiving table. What a bread basket this would make!

Since Thanksgiving is all about, well…giving thanks, be sure to send your guests home with a little token of your appreciation. I recently received these leaf shaped scalloped ornaments from Prismera Design- and wow, what a great favor idea! What I love is the idea of writing a little personal note to your guests right on the ornament itself. They can use this as a tree decoration or even as a bookmark all year long.

You can also send guests home with small treat boxes {I like these woven green ones} filled with candy or mints. Oh- and don’t forget a simple hand written thank you note to show guests you appreciated their presence. Cardstore has a lovely green thank you note I think would be perfect to send. Plus, the green design will carry you through to Christmas time, versatile!
