Thanksgiving decorations give any décor a needed touch to
achieve the Turkey Day look one desires. In fact, having the appropriate
Thanksgiving decorations may make or break any Thanksgiving meal,
so be careful to choose wisely.
For instance, you could use Thanksgiving decorations such as a
turkey made from the handprint of your child, or a few small squashes

decoration that can be used to make the celebration more authentic

Putting whole stalks of corn or maize in the living room is another
Thanksgiving decoration that will go over big. Other Thanksgiving
decorations that may go over well with the guests include putting
Puritanical verse upon the napkins, filling the sidewalk with
squash and pumpkins and bringing an authentic Native American
to dinner in full costume. You may even wish to rub it in about
how the Pilgrim population prospered while the Native Americans
declined. No social faux paux here!
