A roundup of subtly-festive accents for Thanksgiving.
For Canadians, Thanksgiving feels like the start of the holiday season. What does that mean? We'll be hosting lots of parties and could fall victim to hostess-fatigue. Keep things exciting by opting for decor that deviates from the typical cliches (pinecones, pumpkins and leaves, we're looking at you) and offers a not-so-obvious festive feel.
From pretty signage to beautiful table centrepieces, we’ve rounded up 12 pieces of decor for a chic Thanksgiving and beyond.
1. Fruit salt and pepper shakers
While we may be foregoing the typical pumpkin decorations associated with Thanksgiving, we can still find ways to acknowledge harvesting season. Take these fruit-shaped salt and pepper shakers for example—they still feel festive while the metallic finish offers a modern edge.

2. Candelabra centrepiece
This is a bit of an investment piece, but it’s the only centrepiece you’ll need for all of your holiday dinner parties. This gorgeous gold candelabra holds six tapers—and we suggest using different coloured candles for an artsy look.

After dinner is served, your guests may be in the mood for a hot cup of tea. This teapot combines a vintage design with a modern matte black finish that feels just right for fall.
12. Thank you cards
Instead of name cards, up the ante by leaving handwritten cards on guests' plates that list all of the reasons you're grateful for their friendship.
