5 Easy and Beautiful Thanksgiving Decor Ideas For Your Sunroom


Thanksgiving is the holiday that draws everyone home. Fragrant pies baking in the oven, families tossing a football, children playing in the leaves, couples cozied by the fire - when it comes to Thanksgiving, there's simply no place like home. Your sunroom is the ideal place to enjoy the beauty of fall while entertaining those you love. Here are 5 easy decor ideas to make your sunroom festive for Thanksgiving. Best of all, each of these ideas can be reused for Christmas too!


  • Keepsake Runner- Buy a white or neutral table runner and fabric markers. Use the runner during your Thanksgiving meal. Once the meal is done and the table is cleared, ask each guest to sign the back of the table runner with fabric markers, and include something they are thankful for. Each year, your loved ones can add their thankful thoughts to the back of the runner. The handwriting of children, the growing list of blessings, and the memories of those you celebrated with will make this an heirloom to treasure. (Reuse for any meal, since your thankful thoughts are on the back.)
  • Elegant Pinecones- Collect pine cones from your yard (or craft store). Cover them with a coat of gold spray paint. Once dry, cluster them around candles on your sunroom table for a luxurious yet inexpensive centerpiece. (Reuse at Christmas atop evergreen or holly branches.)
  • Dried Leaf Wreath- Attach a loop of ribbon to a foam wreath from your craft store with hot glue. Collect colorful leaves from your yard and attach to the wreath using hot glue. Hang in your sunroom for natural splendor. (Reuse at Christmas by coating wreath in gold spray paint and attaching clusters of red berries or buttons.)
  • Cranberry Centerpiece- Fill a round shallow dish (like a pie plate) with an inch of water. Pour enough fresh cranberries in the dish to almost cover the surface of the water. Set tea lights among the floating cranberries. Place on your sunroom table and light the tea lights before guests arrive. (Reuse at Christmas, since cranberries have the perfect hue.)  
  • Ambient Tree- Dress up a sunroom ficus or plant with a string of warm glowing lights. As the sun goes down, the holiday warmth will continue. Simmer a pot of cinnamon, cider and orange slices on the stove to add to your cozy haven. (Reuse these lights throughout Christmas, or even year round).

July Celebrations Outdoors: Summer Entertaining Made Easy

Summer is finally here; a season to be carefree, laid-back, and relaxed, right? If you frequently entertain during the summer months, you may be thinking this time is anything but relaxing! After all, planning parties and hosting events for friends and family is no easy feat. If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations. The bes…
