We open our homes to family and friends and share in the joys and blessings of the season together. Prepare your home for harvest by creating a warm and welcoming space with these fall decorating ideas.

Freshen Up Your Front Porch
Swap out your summer flowers for more seasonal plants by adding mums to your flowerpots. Consider hanging an autumn wreath on the door or displaying pumpkins, squash and corn stalks on your porch to create a festive look and feel.

Decorate Your Dining Room Table
Craft a centerpiece by placing textured fabrics in a basket and filling it with squash, leaves and acorns. Trade in your every day dishes for festive plates, platters and mugs with inspirational messages that remind you just how blessed you truly are.

Light Candles
Take advantage of the shorter days by lighting candles in the evening. Not only do they look pretty, they make your home smell wonderful. Place them in several rooms throughout the house to create a cozy ambiance.

Set Aside a Quiet Space
Transform an area of your home into a cozy reading corner. Use this space to cuddle up with your devotions and spend some time getting into God’s Word. Lay out a throw blanket and some fluffy pillows to kick up the comfort level.

Incorporating even one of these ideas will make your home feel warm and cozy for fall so pick your favorite and get started. Need an excuse to decorate? We’re offering 25% Off Harvest Gifts, including wall art and dining products, now through October 13.

How to Write a Christian Thank You Card in 5 Simple Steps

In a world where texts, tweets and emojis dominate our interactions, a handwritten thank you note goes a long way. Maybe a neighbor went out of their way to run an errand for you, maybe you received a thoughtful gift in the mail or maybe you want to express your gratitude to a close friend. Whatever the case may be, rediscover the art of a thank you card in five simple steps.

Lead With Gratitude
Begin by thanking the recipient for their thoughtfulness. Don’t feel pressured to come up with an elaborate greeting. Something as simple as “thank you so much for the gift” or “I appreciate your time” is all it takes.

Spell Out Specifics
Include details about what you are grateful for. If you received a gift, let them know how you’ve used it. If you got a gift card, tell them what you’re planning to buy. If someone blessed you with a comforting shoulder during a difficult time, put into words how it made you feel.

Include a Bible Verse
There are several scriptures about thanks and gratitude. Let the recipient know what a blessing they are by including a meaningful Bible verse in your note. Ephesians 1:16 NIV is a great place to start: I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.

Make It Meaningful
Mention something going on in their life, either exciting or challenging, and let them know you are thinking about and praying for them. This extra step lets them know you value the relationship and are tuned into their needs and feelings.

Reaffirm Your Thanks
While it may seem repetitive, end by reiterating your thankfulness. Make sure to change up how you phrase it though. Appreciation, gratitude and gratefulness are just a few other ways to say thank you.

While your words are what truly count, it doesn’t hurt to write them in a beautifully crafted card. Browse Christian cards for every occasion or stop by a store near you and experience our full selection of greeting cards that show your friends and family just how much you care.

What personal touches do you add to your thank you cards?
