As we transition into the busy holiday season filled with food, festivities and family, our focus turns to chic decorating ideas for Thanksgiving. Our version of stylish fall decor always includes a family-friendly aspect, meaning things are never too fussy, delicate or hard to clean. That’s why our machine washable rugs come in so handy during the Thanksgiving holidays. Not only do many of our stylish rugs complement the earthy and rustic feel of Thanksgiving, but there will be reason to worry if your little ones spill a little cranberry sauce on them. The holidays often mean entertaining lots of guests. Something that can be stressful for even the most organized among us. Here, some chic fall decorating ideas that can help you plan ahead for Thanksgiving and hopefully alleviate some of that stress!

Kid-Friendly Thanksgiving Table Ideas
Set the stage for a happy holiday by creating a Thanksgiving kid’s table that will keep the youngest guests busy while the turkey is cooking. Try covering the kid’s table with kraft paper or cutting it into placemats like pictured above and let them doodle and draw to their heart’s content. They can play tic tac toe or hangman using Thanksgiving themed words. Or they can get into the Thanksgiving spirit and write down what they’re thankful for this year. Other fun activities to try at the table are DIY paper pilgrim hats or a mini Mayflower made from a walnut. For a playful centerpiece, why not create a popcorn-filled paper bag turkey. The goal of the kid’s table is controlled chaos.
