Every year we sit down at the table with our loved ones, enjoy the roasted turkey and give thanks for all the good things in life that we enjoy. It is the Thanksgiving, one of those festive moments when families gather together even if they live in different corners of the country. If you are the host this year, then you should prepare your house, decorate it appropriately to make your guests feel welcome. And we are here to help you with some simple, attractive and easy to make Thanksgiving decoration ideas. Since Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, let us get started:

#3 Classic Thanksgiving Decoration Ideas: Cornucopias

Cornucopia, or the horn of abundance, has been a sign of rich harvest and generosity from the times of Ancient Rome. Place all sort of fruit (apples, pears, oranges) into an overflowing wicker corn and arrange it as centerpiece on your table. It will be a good omen of abundance for everyone at dinner.
