CLEAR THE CLUTTER

Before you start decorating your home for Thanksgiving, it's essential to clear away any clutter. Clutter blocks the flow of energy, so it's crucial to keep your home free from clutter. A clean and organized home allows the energy to move freely, which is essential for good feng shui.

Consider decluttering your home and getting rid of any unwanted items. Not only will it help to create a more organized space, but it will also help to clear your mind and make room for new energy.

CHOOSE EARTHY COLORS

The colors you choose for your Thanksgiving decor are essential in feng shui.

Earthy colors like orange, brown, yellow, and gold are ideal for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

These colors reflect the harvest season, which is a time of gratitude and abundance.

Use these colors for your tablecloths, napkins, and other Thanksgiving decor to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

INCORPORATE NATURAL ELEMENTS

Incorporating natural elements like plants and flowers is another way to create a harmonious and peaceful atmosphere in your home.

Plants help to purify the air, and they bring a natural element into your space. Consider adding some plants or flowers to your Thanksgiving decor.

ADD LIGHT

Lighting is another crucial element in feng shui. Light is essential for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in your home.

Use warm and soft lighting to create a cozy and intimate atmosphere.

You can also use candles or string lights to create a relaxing ambiance.

CREATE A PEACEFUL SPACE

Creating a peaceful space is essential in feng shui.

Your home should be a sanctuary where you can relax and unwind.

You can create a peaceful space in your home by incorporating soft fabrics like blankets and pillows.

Consider adding a comfortable seating area where you can read a book or enjoy a cup of tea.

Using feng shui principles to decorate your home for Thanksgiving can create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere.

By clearing the clutter, choosing earthy colors, incorporating natural elements, adding light, and creating a peaceful space, you can create a harmonious environment that promotes positive energy and gratitude.

So, this Thanksgiving, use the art of feng shui to create a beautiful and inviting space that will make your guests feel right at home.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

AROMATHERAPY

Use natural scents to create a pleasant environment.

In a small crockpot place some fresh cranberries, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, sprigs of rosemary, star of anise, a few cloves and sprinkles of nutmeg.

Let it simmer throughout the day. When your guests arrive, they will instantly smell the scent and feel the warmth of the holiday season.

THANKSGIVING MUSIC

Final touch to elevate the mood is with holiday music playing in the background.

Click on this Thanksgiving playlist from YouTube. I love to play this music while I’m cooking and preparing our Thanksgiving feast and in the background as our guests arrive.

It’s my way of leveling up the loving feeling on the day of giving thanks with family and friends.

For more details of the playlist, review the Thanksgiving Music blog.
