November Home Decor Ideas:

From Thanksgiving to Christmas…

Exactly a year ago, I wrote about Thanksgiving and Christmas decor.  Whether you are just decorating for Thanksgiving, mixing fall and Christmas decor or going straight to Christmas, take a look at that blog post for some ideas.  After all, we’re talking about November home decor today so it fits in with the theme.

If you haven’t come up with a table setting idea for Thanksgiving, here is one of my favorite tables to inspire you!

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with classic white plates!  Even though I love using the “fancy” china on my Thanksgiving tables, white plates are so versatile…they go with everything!

Christmas Crafts to Make in November:

An easy craft for a busy month…

Once Thanksgiving is over, many of us begin the Christmas decorating frenzy.  Between all the decorating, shopping and baking Christmas cookies, who has time for a craft?  So, if you want to try a super-easy Christmas craft before things get too crazy, pop over to my recent blog post and learn how to make paper Christmas trees!

Believe me, if I can make these, anyone can!  Not only would they look cute displayed in a holiday vignette, but you could add string and hang some on your Christmas tree….easy and inexpensive Christmas home decor!

November Home Decor Shopping Finds:

Great for gifts or yourself…

If you want to keep your Thanksgiving decorating on the subtle side, just add a natural fiber turkey or two and you’re done!


Before you’re knee deep in Christmas bins, turn on a Hallmark movie and snuggle up with one of these faux fur throws!  Or buy one for someone on your Christmas list!


Even though this Turkey Brining Kit doesn’t qualify as a “home decor” find, it does fit in with the November theme.  If you’re like me, you might need the reminder to try it this year.  From what I’ve heard, brining is the way to go if you don’t want a dry turkey!

For even more  November home decor ideas and creative projects, here are some finds from around the internet:

Hopefully, I’ve inspired you with some ideas to get you through the month of November!

  1. Shelley – your title to this post made me laugh out loud! That is exactly what is happening in November. Your navy dining room/Thanksgiving table is hands-down one of my favorites; I pinned it all over my Dining Tables and Thanksgiving Pinterest boards! Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. Isn’t it the truth though?! I’m trying to enjoy this quiet time in November as much as I can. Thank you so much for your kind words about my dining room…and thanks for pinning. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Shelley, thanks for including me in your November before the storm post – LOL!
    I think all of November feels like a Christmas storm. But that seems to be a bloggers life 😉
    Happy Thanksgiving,
