Consider The Atmosphere

When it comes to decorating for Thanksgiving, lighting is often an afterthought. But with a little bit of planning, you can use lighting to create a warm and inviting space for your holiday gathering. Start by considering the overall atmosphere you want to create. Do you want a cozy and intimate space or a bright and festive one? Once you have a vision in mind, you can start planning your lighting accordingly.

Set the Mood and Make it Cozy

If you want a cozy space, focus on using low, warm light. This can be achieved with candles, lamps, and even string lights. Place candles around the room, and use lamps to create pools of light. String lights can be draped over furniture or hung from the ceiling to add a bit of sparkle. All of these ideas can help your guests feel warm and welcome this Thanksgiving.

Make It Festive

For a brighter, more festive space this Thanksgiving, use a mix of different light sources. While candles, lamps, and string lights will still create a warm ambiance, you can also add in some fun accent lights. Fairy lights and lanterns can add a touch of whimsy, while spotlights can highlight specific areas of the room.

Don't Forget Colors

Light bulbs have temperature, and you can control just how warm your space is or how bright it is just by changing out the light bulbs. This Thanksgiving, try using more yellow lights and even vintage lighting to create a snug and warm-hearted feeling. Try adding some lighting controls, so you can control the exact amount of lighting in your spaces. And, no matter what style of lighting you choose, be sure to place lights at different levels to create a more interesting space. Shop Southern Lights this Thanksgiving today!
