Lighting can make such a difference when creating “atmosphere” for a gathering. As you begin cooking and building centerpieces for your table this Thanksgiving, it’s worth taking a few minutes to think about lighting. You might consider getting a new chandelier, or maybe a hanging lamp to accent your table; you could even use a string of lights to brighten up the centerpiece. String lights are great because not only do they have a low risk of flame, but they’re also easy to install. They can dramatically change the atmosphere of your event! Goodwill often has great string lights for much cheaper than you can buy new.
If you want to have a new age-y friends-giving you might also be able to find a disco ball or flashing party lights at Goodwill to set a more festive mood after dinner. You could always go the old- fashioned way with drip wax candles. You can find assorted jars and candles at Goodwill to mix and match for a softer, more intimately lit scene.
Stop by Goodwill on your way home from work and see what inspires you. And, a little sparkle to your Thanksgiving celebration with fun lighting from Goodwill.
