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).

Weeding Your Lawn in Winter

Before these nuisances gain the optimal conditions to proliferate, go ahead and get a head start on prepping your grass to minimize your to-do list and to maximize your time enjoying your outdoor spaces when it becomes nice outside.   Locate and Plan   If you remember back to the warmer months when it seemed that the landscape was plagued with unsightly and infinitely multiplying weeds, you will likely get a good sense of where many of these patches are located.

Creating an Outdoor Retreat

Protecting Your Outdoor Spaces During The Winter

Winter is here, which means that you should officially be checking off the outdoor winterizing that’s been on your to do list for months. Outdoor spaces can be a cherished secondary living space to us, especially given the level of time and money that we dedicate to the design and upkeep. When the spring comes, we often jump at the chance to set all of our outdoor items up, start planting, and restart lawn maintenance. But, when the leaves start falling and a chill hits the air, we long to hold on to those endless summer nights. For this reason, many people put off important maintenance required to preserve external assets. Striving to minimize damage to patios, decks, sunrooms and other outdoor objects should be at the top of your to do list during the fall each year. Preventative tasks will help prevent costly repairs or replacement. With a little bit of sweat equity or help from third parties that specialize in this process, you can assure that you are taking the appropria
