A beautifully decorated Thanksgiving table warms the heart and can help create a festive atmosphere for your family and friends. From traditional to modern, there are so many ways to decorate for the holiday season it can be hard to choose. Try our top ten suggestions to bring your Thanksgiving celebration to life!

1. Keep Your Colors Warm

It's not just you that has to stay warm over the holidays; it's your color palette too! Fall is the perfect time to incorporate earthy tones into your home décor. Here are some tips on how to incorporate cozy natural colors into your Thanksgiving decorations: 

  • Neutral colors like beiges, tans, and whites provide an excellent base that can be built upon with brighter colors. 
  • Earthy reds, oranges, yellows, and greens will bring warmth without overwhelming the space. 
  • Try introducing texture with natural materials like wood and stone. 
  • Don’t forget about purples! A deep plum can add an unexpected yet beautiful pop of color that will enhance any room for Thanksgiving celebrations. Try pairing it with softer oranges, yellows, and greens for a stunning effect.

2. Go Green

People often forget to use greenery in their homes during the holidays, but leaves from your garden add an element of freshness to your Thanksgiving decorations. Why not:

  • Gather various leaves, such as maple, oak, or even pine and make wreaths that have some texture and stimulate visual interest. 
  • Hang bunches of foliage from doorways or windowsills. This is an easy way to add color and warmth without taking up too much space – perfect for smaller homes! 

3. Up Your Presentation with Pomegranates

When it comes to festive decorating for Thanksgiving, pomegranates are a great way to add a touch of seasonal cheer. Why not create a stunning centerpiece by placing a few pomegranates in the center of your table? Add some leaves, pine cones, or other natural elements to create a beautiful arrangement to enjoy along with dinner.

Speaking of eating, try this smart pomegranate move. Fill vases with pomegranates, pomegranate seeds, or both for an eye-catching display to place on side tables, bookshelves, or mantels.

4. Have Some Fun with Fruit

Fruits can be used in many ways to create unique and beautiful decorations that make your home feel special. Here are some of our favorite ideas for incorporating fruit into your Thanksgiving décor: 

  • Create an eye-catching centerpiece with a mix of apples, pears, oranges, and other seasonal fruits. Arrange them in a basket or on top of a fancy platter for an elegant display. 
  • Add a festive touch to your windowsill by making a mini fruit garland. String together slices of apples, pears, oranges, and other fruits for an easy-to-make decoration that will look great in any window. 


5. You Can Always Use MORE Garland

Garlands are a wonderful way to add some Thanksgiving cheer to your décor. Here are a couple of ideas on how to use garlands in your Thanksgiving decorations:

  • Give your staircase a seasonal upgrade by looping garlands around the banister or wrapping them up and down each step for an eye-catching display that will last all season long. 
  • Give your mantel a Thanksgiving refresh by draping it in garlands and fairy lights and adding seasonal accents such as candles and mini gourds. 

6. Flowers are the Perfect Way to Show You Care

What better way to show your love and gratitude than big florals? One way to incorporate luscious arrangements is by greeting your guests at the door. A large, lush bouquet will make your home feel inviting and warm as soon as your guests enter. 

Oversized florals are great for accenting corners too. Place potted plants or tall vases filled with flowers in each room corner to brighten up any space, then sit back and enjoy the compliments!

7. Pumpkins Can Still Take the Spotlight

Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween anymore! Why not make mini jack-o'-lanterns? Carve smaller pumpkins into mini jack-o'-lanterns with cheerful faces and place them on your porch or near the door to welcome guests to Thanksgiving dinner. 

Better yet, how about trying your hand at creating pumpkin topiaries? Stack several small, medium, and large pumpkins together, then tie them all off with a ribbon or raffia bow. Place this showstopper in the middle of your entryway or living room to wow your guests.

8. Get Started by Vibing Out

Sometimes, deciding on your theme is the hardest part of decorating for any occasion. If you’re looking for a classic, timeless feel that won’t overwhelm your space, then minimalist may be the way to go. Minimalist décor uses only the essentials, like a few pieces of furniture and simple decorations. You can use natural materials like wood or metal for an earthy vibe - no clutter allowed! 

On the other hand, if you’re feeling festive and want to make a statement with lots of color and texture, then maximalist is your style. Maximalists celebrate the abundance of life and uses a mix of materials, shapes, and colors to create an eye-catching environment. 

If you’re looking for something in between minimalist and maximalist, then chic or neutral could be your answer. Chic décor uses simple designs with sleek lines and luxurious materials like velvet or marble to give your space some added sophistication. 

9. Use Candles for Ambience

Candles provide a warm, inviting atmosphere and also evoke feelings of nostalgia and gratitude. Why not place your candles in some unexpected places? Try adding candles to bookshelves or other unexpected areas around the room. You'll be surprised how much these little touches can add to the ambiance of your home.

While you’re at it, why not take this opportunity to get creative with how you display each place setting? Place a votive candle at each setting and then add decorative elements like pinecones or seasonal foliage that match your other decorations.

10. Spell Out Your Thankfulness with Signs

Done correctly, thankful signs can add a touch of elegance to any get-together. Some things to think about when creating your signs are:

  • Create a focal point. A big, bold sign will be sure to catch everyone’s attention when they enter the room! It could be one large sign with “Thankful” in big letters or multiple smaller signs with words like “Gratitude,” “Blessings,” and more. 
  • Personalize it. Show off your unique personality by adding special touches to your thankful signs! Try painting them in bright colors, adding glitter or lace trim, or writing out special messages that mean something to you personally.
