Did you brave the crowds of people to get in some Black Friday shopping?? This is the first Black Friday that I haven’t had to work in 10+ years so it was a real treat for me to be able to be part of the shopping action this year! I was definitely not one of those people waiting in lines for hours (or days) – there is no deal big enough to get me to be part of that craziness. However, I was out hitting the stores from 7:30pm to 3am and got lots of great stuff – wish I could show it to you, but most of my great buys were Christmas gifts for friends and family who read my blog. Here’s the one thing I bought myself though – a new winter coat at Express at 50% off – it has a very flattering silhouette (and the back of it is super cute!).

I’m planning on heading back out today to focus more on some home decor deals since none of my typical haunts (Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, etc.) were open during the hours I was out last night. Now is a great time to think ahead to next year’s Thanksgiving and load up on Thanksgiving home decor items that have gone on sale. Here are my favorites:
Pottery Barn’s Bird Salad Plates (set of 4) are on sale for $39.00. I love the traditional designs and muted color palette of these plates. They would be beautiful on a Thanksgiving table paired with solid colored white or brown dinner plates and would also look great displayed on a plate rack or easels.

Crate and Barrel’s Vine Pumpkins and Gourds would be perfect for creating a table centerpiece or for decorating a mantle, sideboard, or chest. They are available in store and online (except for the large pumpkin – that big guy is already sold out online but you may be able to find him in a store). Choose from the small pumpkin ($2.95), large pumpkin ($7.95), small gourd ($4.95), & large gourd ($9.95). The pumpkins and gourds are eligible for free shipping when you over $99 on eligible items online.
I love Crate and Barrel’s Rona Amber Runner, which has also gone on sale. It is 14″ wide and comes in three lengths: 60″ ($29.95), 90″ ($39.95), and 120″ ($44.95). There are also placemats in this same design that are on sale for $7.95 each. Like the vine pumpkins and gourds, they are eligible for free shipping if you spend over $99.

Do you have young kids?? Pottery Barn Kids has an adorable Thanksgiving tablecloth on sale for $49.99 that would be great for next year’s Thanksgiving feast!

Sur la Table has some cute twig turkeys at half price (they are cuter in person than in this grainy picture!) that are made with twigs, pinecones, yarn, and wood. The large turkey is $19.99 and the medium is $9.99. These cute guys would look great with the Crate and Barrel vine pumpkins and gourds!

West Elm’s Sesame Letterpress porcelain “Give Thanks” Platter is a favorite of mine – it is very neutral so would go well with any dinnerware that you have and the flowing script lettering would add a nice touch sophistication to any Thanksgiving table. The platter is on sale for $14.99 and you can get it shipped to you for free!

The Thanksgiving sale items are selling fast, so if you like any of my favorites or if you have other Thanksgiving home decor items that you’ve been eyeing – get out there and get them! Have a great long weekend!
