Should I Decorate for Thanksgiving?

Yes! Thanksgiving is one of the most favorite holidays of the year. It’s a special time when family and friends gather together to enjoy each other’s company, enjoy wonderful food and take time to give thanks for all they have. Thanksgiving decorations are a beautiful welcome to all those who gather around you.

And what better season to do that in than with the visual vibrant colors of fall beauty all around us. Bringing that beauty indoors and around our homes and showcasing it for friends, family and ourselves adds to the spirit of thankfulness and celebration for all that we have been given.

How can I decorate for Thanksgiving?

As with any decorating, decorate for Thanksgiving according to your style and what you like. You can put Thanksgiving decorations indoors, outdoors or both. You can add Thanksgiving decorations to your dining room table, your walls, fireplace mantel, doors or windows.

It really comes down to what you like. You can add to the ambience by lighting fragrant candles or having potpourri simmering on the stove with seasonal scents like apple cider or pumpkin spice.

Traditional Thanksgiving decorations include a horn of plenty or cornucopia, gourds, pumpkins, corn, pilgrim and Indigenous decor. Traditional flowers used with Thanksgiving decor include yellow sunflowers, orange roses, red carnations and other flowers with rich autumn colors.

DIY Thanksgiving Decorations for Outside

Looking for outdoor Thanksgiving decorations? Thanksgiving door decorations, fall wreaths, pumpkins, and fall florals will make a lasting impression on all who gather at your home before even stepping inside!

Adding pumpkin decor to your front steps or porch is an easy, simple and great way to greet people to your home. When decorating steps with pumpkins you’ve got two options: real and faux and you can do either well these days. Arranging a variety of colors and types of pumpkins in a pattern is pleasing to the eye.

DIY Thanksgiving Decorations for the Table

When you’re hosting Thanksgiving, your table will most likely be the center of attraction. Using plenty of natural items from the outdoors such as pine cones, fall foliage such as branches with coloured leaves, or berries, and pumpkins and gourds make a memorable table setting.

Use pine cones to make a pine cone wreath or use them as individual place card holders. Adding glitter or metallics to your table elevates it up a notch for elegant Thanksgiving decorations. Pumpkins can serve as little details or as the central theme of your decorations.

DIY Thanksgiving Decorations on a Budget

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have beautiful thanksgiving decorations. Simple candles, Kraft paper, and items from nature all provide ambience and beauty for your Thanksgiving decor.

Buy locally to find cheap pumpkins, gourds, apples and cranberries to use for your Thanksgiving decorations. Then work with what you already have in your home such as vases, candleholders, and jars. Display beautiful free fall printables throughout your home that will delight your family, even your youngest kids.

Reusing old decorations from previous Thanksgiving celebrations is a great idea. It can save you a lot of money over time. Repurpose your old decorations, and make them new again

Berry Branch Centerpiece

“Free up prime dinner-table real estate by moving oversize arrangements to the buffet. And don’t bother with elaborate floral fantasies: Just go “shopping” in your backyard for branches of holly, crab apple, or bittersweet berries. Then bring in-demand items—butter, gravy, cranberry sauce—to the middle of the table.”
