The holiday season can get very stressful between all the holiday parties, decorations, and family and friends coming into town to visit. Because of this we found some ideas on how to decorate your house for Thanksgiving this year. You can free up some space on your dinner table by moving your centerpieces to a new spot in your home. Another popular idea for family parties is to create a kids table. And, do not forget to label your dishes!

Another decorative touch to add to your house is a pine cone wreath. This is a great project that will not take long and does not cost a lot of money.
