The weekend’s almost here. I’m Robin with Front Door Friday. Do you have a lot to be thankful for? I do. And I love to celebrate the spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving starting with a beautiful and inspiring front door.
Cluster a vignette on one side for a focal point. A table or barrel is great for small items so they don’t get lost below eye level. Don’t be afraid to cover up some of the letters in large oversized signs. People will still be able to read them and you’ll be able to work them in better by stacking behind smaller pieces.
Shop in your garden or a farmers’ market. Take advantage of the beautiful seasonal gourds and squashes to decorate. It’s fun to design a vegetable display greeting Thanksgiving guests, then use the vegetables for your meal.
It can be really difficult to decorate an entrance with limited space around the door. Be sure to use garlands and wreaths. Pull the rest of the decor out along the sidewalk or porch to elongate and expand the entrance. Sometimes big empty wall space can suck up the holiday spirit. Grab some baskets and create an outdoor gallery wall.
This time of year it’s easy to get stressed and busy. I encourage you to take a break, think about Thanksgiving, and celebrate it.
That’s it for this week’s Front Door Friday. I encourage you to step out and try some front door decorating this weekend. For more information, check out the Country Door blog. And I’ll see you next Friday. Happy decorating and God bless.
