Seasonal decorations are a great way to keep your home feeling fresh all year round. They offer a regular chance for change and a way for our homes to reflect the landscape outside. That being said, many people find it challenging to find seasonal decorations that don’t feel ‘tacky’ or mass-produced.
Here at Leather Treasure, we believe that leather decor is a classy and stylish way to bring Autumnal colors into your home. That’s why we’ve put together this list of five ways you can incorporate leather into your Thanksgiving decor.
1. Placemats and Coasters
For many, Thanksgiving Dinner is the perfect opportunity to show off their hosting skills. It’s a time to break out the fancy dishes, polish up the silverware, and put on a meal like no other.
And why not compliment this fine dining with some high-quality leather placemats and coasters?
Leather is a great material for placemats and coasters because it’s durable and easy to clean. Aside from that, it also brings a beautiful, traditional look to your home. What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than with the timeless aesthetic of leather?
In keeping with the desire to have your decor reflect the outside world, planters are an excellent way to bring a little more nature into your home. Leather-bound planters combine the beauty of nature with the innovation of old-fashioned crafts, in a way that will give your home a unique, Thanksgiving-themed look.
Now, it’s hard to deny just how gorgeous a nice, leather-bound mug can look. From complex embossed designs to a simple dark covering, leather-bound mugs have an almost medieval charm to them.
Even better, if you have a family, this decor suggestion can double up as a little pre-Christmas gift. Leather-bound mugs are easy to personalize and will bring a unique style to your home.
4. A Hide Rug
Moving into the winter months, anyone lucky enough to have a fireplace is going to be busy stacking up their logs and preparing for the cold weather. Hide rugs make for a delightfully cosy compliment to a roaring log fire, as well as a lovely place to lay your tired feet up. If you are looking for that classic American feel then animal hide is the way to go.
5. A Cornucopia
Last but certainly not least, we simply couldn’t make this list without taking a moment to pay homage to this iconic Thanksgiving decoration. The Cornucopia is a symbol of everything Thanksgiving represents, of the splendor of a bountiful harvest and of all the things we’re thankful for.
While, traditionally, Thanksgiving Cornucopias feature a wicker/woven horn, we’d like to suggest leather as an alternative for your cornucopia display. A leather horn would be sturdy and long-lasting while still making use of the kinds of traditional materials the pilgrims would have had at their disposal.
At the end of the day, however you decorate your home, it’s important that you find the look that’s right for you. Here at Leather Treasure, we hope your new decor will bring you joy and we wish you a happy Thanksgiving!
