Skipping On Thanksgiving Decor?

Does anybody else feel Thanksgiving is getting ripped off this year? It seems to me the retail markets have gone straight from Halloween to Christmas! Well, in our household I've been trying to prolong the pumpkin season. I had to think of creative ways to display these squashes, so it doesn't resemble Halloween too much.

Gourds can go either way (Halloween or Thanksgiving) and still look festive!

If you're looking to get that fall touch, you can't fail with gorgeous apples!

How can you go wrong with fall colored candies?

Caramels with gold wrapping (notice it's half empty)!

and not to be too monotone with the fall colors, a splash of lime green mums gives an untraditional twist!

How are you decorating for Turkey day?

"Oh how we love pumpkin season. You did know this gourd-ish squash has its own season, right? Winter, Spring, Summer, Pumpkin.... We anxiously anticipate it every year. "
