This fall, welcome family and friends with colorful Thanksgiving décor. Celebrate the season with decorations that showcase the bountiful harvest autumn brings and all the things we’re grateful for.
When Should You Start Putting Up Thanksgiving Decorations?
Although Thanksgiving isn’t until November, you can begin decorating with that celebration in mind as summer transitions into autumn. Replace summer blooms with fall foliage and Thanksgiving décor in the latter part of August or early September. It’s a great way to anticipate the shift in temperatures and the changing of nature’s colors. To help with your preparations, we have gathered a few Thanksgiving decoration ideas and tips you can incorporate into your home.
How Should You Decorate Your Home for Thanksgiving?
- Use a Warm Color Scheme
Look to fall’s striking hues as the perfect inspiration for your seasonal decorating. Pair rusty reds, vibrant oranges, and rich ambers with deep greens, browns, and other earth tones. All these colors bring about a warm, inviting atmosphere whether indoors or outdoors.
- Decorate Your Entryway with Fall Foliage
Greet your guests with a lovely display of lifelike greenery and potted trees that feature crisp maple leaves. Hang a fall-inspired wreath on your door and drape matching garlands along your windows or porch railings. When decorating in al fresco areas, opt for outdoor-safe artificial foliage with UV protection.
- Get Creative with Pumpkin Placements
Arrange pumpkins alongside the books on your shelves or put miniature ones on top of your dining plates as charming napkin holders. These popular Thanksgiving décor items also look great displayed on your porch. Gather pumpkins in varying sizes and stack or line them up beside your entryway like a cheerful welcoming committee.
- Showcase the Fruits of Fall
Celebrate the year’s harvest by incorporating faux fruits in your decorations to match those in your pantry. They pair well with artificial greenery and bring freshness and color to your display. Fill empty bowls with Thanksgiving ornaments and seasonal fruits such as apples, pears, pomegranates, and grapes. For a unique arrangement, turn a wreath into your dining table’s centerpiece then place the fruits within it.
- Create a Relaxing Ambience
Throw pillows and blankets in soft fabrics add a cozy touch to your home, especially as the weather grows cooler. Set out candles on tables, mantels, or shelves and light them up during evenings as you wind down. Balsam Hill’s Flameless LED candles are a safe alternative to traditional candles because they mimic the flicker of real candlelight without the risk of fire. They also eliminate the mess of wax dripping on your furniture or fabric.
