Hard to believe that it's already the holidays again,but here's Thanksgiving on our doorstep. Are you ready? Yeah, probably not, but that's okay! No need to panic about getting ready for the holiday, especially when it comes to preparing your home for guests.
You want it to be clean, you want it to look nice, but you don't want to spend all your time decorating for one day, right? Easy--here are a few things you can pick up and add to your decor to make it fresh that won't take up too much of your time.
In the Kitchen
There's a good chance that you and your guests will be spending a fair amount of time in the kitchen this holiday, and you might want to add a few little touches to make it feel like the holidays everywhere (of course, the smell of food will go a loooong way!).
When you're looking for somewhere to put that fresh-out-of-the-oven dish, the perfect trivet can be a godsend, and also a great looking piece of art on your countertop, if you know what to look for.
The Remake It! Wine Cork Trivet is the perfect choice. With a few wine corks and a few minutes of time, you can make it yourself, recycle old corks, and show off a new piece for Thanksgiving. Its rustic appeal is perfect for the holiday, too--and a great host or hostess gift, as well.

Well, the last one may be better used the next morning, but either way, you're bound to have good drinks when you use the Good Measure Glasses.
Double Duty on Coasters
So here's the cool thing about coasters, right--they're both super functional at keeping your furniture from looking like a disaster after everyone runs around setting their drinks on it and a great way to add some flare to your space.
No, really, how much easier does it get than decorative coasters? You can find them in a bunch of cute designs and styles both for the holidays and year round, and they take care of themselves. That is a win for everybody.
