Thanksgiving Decor Ideas

I must admit- decorating for each of the holidays has quickly become one of my all-time favorite activities. I am always waiting for the next holiday to come so I can decorate, and Mr. R knows that the way to my heart is a holiday-themed front door sign.

So, now that Halloween has come and gone, I think I have waited long enough to begin Thanksgiving decorating!

First, let me start this off by saying that Thanksgiving is good for your budget (but bad for your desire to decorate) in that a lot of the items you probably bought for Halloween (think orange items, pumpkins, etc.) can most likely double up as Thanksgiving decor. But that being said, I have come across so many cute Thanksgiving ideas that I just can’t reuse anything this go around- except, of course, my amazing Pumpkin Scentsy– but that is a whole different post!

So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite Fall and Thanksgiving decor ideas.

Candy Corn Centerpieces

Who doesn’t love candy corn? Using the theme as decoration is genius! Check out the link through Pinterest for directions on how to make these little beauties.

More candy corns!

To make these bad boys, simply take a styrofoam cone and wrap it in yarn- easy peasy!


Fall Wall

I like the idea of decorating an entire wall for the season. In this Pinterest pin, they used a different frame for each letter of the word “Fall” and spaced it out and threw in other items, like a wreath, for a fun holiday wall.

Non-Traditional Fall Colors

I just think these white, green and orange pumpkin decorations are precious. They stick with the subdued fall colors, but they have a pop of fun and brightness. I also love the hand-painted look on the pumpkins!

Colorful Fall

Love this cheery, bright look! Fall is known for browns, oranges and creams, but why not throw in some lime green and pink?! These would be super easy to make, as well. Just spray paint some pinecones and throw ’em in a vase and voila!

Pumpkin Bowl

I love this idea for Thanksgiving, a Halloween party or any other holiday get together. Just hollow out a pumpkin and stick a bowl inside for a great way to showcase a punch or salad.

Fall Candle Centerpieces

Wouldn’t these make the cutest centerpieces for Thanksgiving dinner? They seem like they’d be relatively easy and cheap to put together, and these could definitely last from late September through the end of November.
