Whether for the front porch or on the coffee table, lanterns can be a wonderful accent to not only outdoor spaces but indoor spaces as well. Yes, that special lantern glow on the front door steps is always a welcome sight, but lanterns offer many more possibilities – use them to add height to a centrepiece, fill them with gourds or pine cones for a unique mantlepiece, or use them to add cozy backyard ambiance for a fall night.

fall cushion covers with a colourful leaf on each cover

A filling Thanksgiving feast is usually followed by relaxing on the couch, whether to share stories, play a board game, or watch football. Extend the autumnal ambiance to your living room with a colourful throw and some maple leaf cushions. Tip: Cushion covers make the swap easy and won’t take up valuable storage space.

Faux pumpkins for a centrepiece

There’s nothing quite like decorative gourds to complete the look for the special occasion – and these mini pumpkins can be used again and again. Made from sustainability-sourced upcycled materials, these little pumpkins can be used in a multitude of creative ways for a charming accent or a grand centrepiece.

There is something about the look of candlesticks that can equally create the feeling of an intimate occasion as well as an elegant one. Gather two or more candlesticks of equal height for a balanced tablescape display or incorporate candlesticks of different heights for an interesting and fanciful effect.

These handwoven placemats, made from a sustainable and tropical vine, could easily become a conversation starter at your Thanksgiving dinner. Nito, a climbing fern that grows in tropical forests, is traditionally used by artisans to produce weaved baskets and trays. Tie the look together with the addition of nito napkin rings or a simple nito bread basket.
