Thanksgiving is a holiday dedicated to being grateful. Though it may have been a difficult few years for many of us, there is still plenty to be thankful for. Having your family gathered for the holidays warms the heart and reminds us of the true meaning of the holiday season.
Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the whole family or just trying to make your home a little cozier for fall, fragranced candles are a must. The right fragrance can make your guests feel welcome and create a cheerful atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. Plus, nothing creates a warmer holiday environment than an assortment of luxuriously scented candles.

Simple Home Decoration Tips for the Holidays
Some people go all out with holiday decorations but if you aren’t one to change your décor scheme for every individual holiday, stick to decorations that suit the entire holiday season. Fall colors like red and gold work just as well for Thanksgiving as for Christmas. You can always use LAFCO fragranced candles to bring a pop of color to your holiday décor and swap them out with the changing seasons.
Here are some simple holiday decoration tips perfect for Thanksgiving:
- Set your Christmas tree up early but decorate it for Thanksgiving with ribbon in fall colors – instead of ornaments, write things you’re thankful for on mini pumpkins to hang.
- Create a festive centerpiece for your holiday table featuring mixed greenery – use LAFCO scented candles or votives to add a pop of color you can easily switch out.
- As the last of your garden starts to wilt, gather flowers and foliage and let it dry then use it to create decorative fall arrangements.
- Set your favorite fall-themed LAFCO scented candles and reed diffusers out and, after Thanksgiving passes, wrap each in a bright ribbon to make them look like gift decorations.
- Incorporate red berries and pinecones into your fall décor – it can easily be transitioned into winter décor with the addition of pine boughs or garland.
As Thanksgiving comes and goes, get ready for the rest of the holiday season to come rushing in. Stock up on your LAFCO favorites to make your home merry and bright but don’t forget to add a few extras to your cart to have on hand for last-minute gifts.
