Decorating Your RV for Fall and Thanksgiving

June 22, 2018

Camp Style Thanksgiving Day Dinner

Maybe there isn’t room on your dining table for the big Thanksgiving centerpieces you’re used to, but a smaller more compact version can be just as colorful and meaningful for your downsized lifestyle.

Here are some Autumn and Thanksgiving decorations that work great in small spaces. These will add a festive touch to your RV – without emptying your pocketbook.

Use Nature

Low-cost decorations that you make from natural materials will minimize the cost, and can be easily disposed of once the season is over. This approach will also save you valuable storage space.

Use the beautiful oranges, reds and golds found in leaves and gourds to set off your fall theme throughout your RV.

If you happen to be staying anywhere near a marsh or wetland area, you may be able to retrieve a handful of cattails, and maybe some dried tall grass.

Storing Decorations Inside Your RV

Most RVs designed for full-time living include a sizable amount of storage space. By choosing wisely – with size and storage space being considered – a plastic storage tub can easily accommodate the off-season storage of your decorations.

Throughout the year, you can cycle between the seasons and holidays – storing away one season’s decorations, as you remove the next from the same storage tub.

The key to success in your Fall decorating is to concentrate on a few small but high quality items. Quality will outshine quantity every time.
