Preparing a home for holidays implies a clean home with a fresh energy, so clutter clearing and a bit of basic space clearing before, as well as after the party, will be the desired feng shui steps.
Having all five feng shui elements present in your holiday decor increases the chances of a harmonious energy in your home, so be sure to explore the numerous ways you can bring the powerful feng shui energy of the 5 elements.
Of course, depending on the season and the celebration, there will always be a predominant feng shui element energy that needs to be strengthened. With Thanksgiving, it is the earth feng shui element - the earth bounty - that is emphasized and celebrated. Fire feng shui element is also brought forward in the Thanksgiving good feng shui home decor, as it has a nourishing and supportive relationship with the earth feng shui element.
On a practical level, these two feng shui elements are expressed in the predominant decor colors: red, fiery orange and gold for the fire feng shui element and creme, light yellow and sandy brown colors for the earth feng shui element.
The shapes of these two elements are also widely used in the Thanksgiving good feng shui home decor: the grounding, stable and solid square shape of the earth feng shui element and the triangular shape of the fire element. Candles as the fire element and a variety of earthenware containers as earth element are also very popular items with excellent feng shui energy for the Thanksgiving celebration.
The holiday table, the main entrance and the fireplace mantel seem to be the most decorated areas of the home for any celebration including Thanksgiving. Feng shui-wise, though, attention should be paid to all areas of your home, especially the kitchen, the bathrooms and the bedrooms.
Pay attention to the subtle messages of your home, such as, for example, the home scents in different areas. To make the energy of your home congruent for holidays, decide on one, maximum two scents and use them throughout your home. Candles, essential oil diffusers or essential oil airsprays are all good ways to keep the energy of your home fresh for holidays.
Of course, the good old way of baking yummy goodies and letting the aroma spread throughout your home is excellent holiday feng shui!
Ultimately, the best celebrations are the ones where you have a really good company, so creating a comfortable setting for your friends and family to enjoy is the ultimate good feng shui for the holidays.
Good food, good friends and a good dose of the feng shui fire element (candles or fireplace to warm up and purify the energy) are the best ingredients for a well-celebrated holiday.
