I love decorating for Thanksgiving with trends that can easily move with me through Christmas. That is where the Thankful Corner comes in. By mixing reindeers with silver and white-light decor, this corner can easily transition from Fall to Winter. And as anyone with limited free time can tell you – the less work one has to do around the holidays, the better!
Plus – it’s totally budget friendly!
This entire corner is either thrifted or a DIY project. Let’s just get right down to it, shall we?

Now I know you probably don’t have the same items that I did on hand. But I am a true believer in ‘making it work’. And all of the stuff I already had, I had to search through my house to find! My guess is – if you did the same, you would be amazed at what you can come up with. I find corner tables that I look right past every single day, so many times, that are suddenly perfect for a photo shoot. Or old fabric stuffed at the bottom of a plastic bin, that I forgot I had. You’ll be amazed at what you find when you simply start looking!
