Thanksgiving is the holiday that people enjoy.  It is not only the time to give thanks and be grateful, but is the time to gather with friends and family.  There is nothing that brings them closer than a great home-cooked meal.  And it is the holiday that kicks off the Christmas season.

It is also the time to decorate.  If your swimming pool is still open, there is a possibility that you have a heater.  Then, take advantage of the outdoors to celebrate a memorable holiday.  The decorations also play an essential role in creating the ambiance you want.

Here are some ideas that can make your Thanksgiving memorable:

Plastic Pom Poms –

These are made from inexpensive plastic tablecloths.  Just fold them cross-cornered, tie them with a string and cut them with patterned scissors.  At the end of the pom pom, glue it into a base that will let it float in the swimming pool.
