Years ago, I was blessed to receive my aunt’s antique, porcelain turkey collection. She had collected and enjoyed them for years yet decided they needed a new home. So we welcomed the 20 some turkeys with open arms and worked them into our fall decor. I used to put them out just for Thanksgiving, but then I realized that blending my Halloween and Thanksgiving decor worked beautifully.
My turkeys go out on display in September and stay out until I decorate for Christmas. Most of my Halloween decor can stay out that long as well. If something is overtly Halloween then I pack it up November 1st. But if it is something like this orange Jack-O-Lantern I can get away with just turning it around and it now it is a Thanksgiving pumpkins.

Some gobblers are mixed into vignettes in my kitchen.
Some are a part of my elaborate centerpieces.
How many turkeys do you have on display? -Meredith
