Decorate for Fall and Thanksgiving

Fall means Thanksgiving, and with this season comes the changing of the leaves, the browns, reds, oranges. You see more dark colors, a more earthy-woody feel. For those of you who love doecorating in conjunction with the season, we’ve got some great ideas to help you get started. We’re going to include table decorations for Thanksgiving, cute mason jar lights, and mantle pieces, among others. So grab your Michael’s loyalty card and start making a list of all the items you’re going to need to decorate for fall.

DIY Halloween Party Decorations

At Just Like Family, we’re excited for Halloween! We can’t wait! We’ve already posted about costumes, and Halloween treats and drinks. Now we’ll cover party decorations you can make at home. These decorations will bring your party up from “eh” to “OMG”. People will be asking where you bought your decorations. And don’t be surprised if they’re stunned to hear that they’re all homemade! Save these projects, I bet you’ll be getting asked for instructions on how to make each item from your partygoers.
