All those autumn colors of reds, golds, oranges and greens create a perfect Thanksgiving atmosphere. You can incorporate a lot of nature in your decorations. Scatter leaves and acorns on the tables, create centerpieces with branches and pussy-willows and don't forget pumpkins, gourds and multi-colored corn.

Check with your local florist for in-season flowers. Mums are always a great choice.

Of course you can go whimsical too and include turkeys and pilgrims!

Chances are that you will be celebrating with friends and family which means that one person will likely be taking on the majority of work by hosting the feast at their home. If you've been invited to some one's celebration, be sure to arrive with a little something to show the host or hostess how much you appreciate their efforts. After all, they've probably been stuck in the kitchen for hours.

Whether you bring a bottle of wine, some festive home-baked cookies, or a Thanksgiving gift basket, the recipient will certainly appreciate your thoughtfulness!
