Front Porch Decoration Ideas for Thanksgiving

From Simple to Elegant

Thanksgiving decoration ideas - a collage

Enjoy our decoration ideas for Thanksgiving. It's both Dave's and my favorite holiday.

Just family, friends, good food and a time to be extra thankful. We hope you enjoy these ideas for autumn and Thanksgiving decorating.



Thanksgiving porch idea: alternate mums and pumpkins on the porch steps

Alternating mums and pumpkins along the porch steps make for an unforgettable entryway for your family and guests

Thanksgiving decoration idea: simple pumpkin topiary

Or how about a simply pumpkin topiary? Aren't these cute? Go for pumpkins of different colors if you can.

Tie cornstalks to your porch railings or porch stairs

We love the idea of tying cornstalks to your railings or columns and finishing with pretty sunflowers and ribbons or whatever you might have on hand. Colorful raffia, a garland of berries, a bunch of cut mums, wooden turkeys, really anything.

More Decoration Ideas for Thanksgiving

Add kale and lanterns to your autumn decorations

Add in some kale and lanterns to your autumn mix. We like the charming wooden pumpkin at the front door.

wispy autumn wreath on the front door

Another sweet variation on a theme - and the addition of a wispy autumn wreath at the front door.

Beautiful red coleus in the autumn garden

Ever try coleus in your garden?

If you live in the north, the coleus will likely be bitten by cold weather by the time Thanksgiving rolls around. But if you live in a milder climate, isn't it beautiful this time of the year? Notice that unique tin star decoration, too.

Dress up your Thanksgiving porch with side tables, lamps and cozy fabrics

Dress up your porch side tables with burlap and a complementary fabric like this brown and white polka dot swatch.

This is our porch and we made the pillow covers, too. They are pretty for anytime in the autumn and carry over till Thanksgiving.



Magnolia Hall at the Savannah College of Art and Design - all decorated for autumn

This is the scene at Magnolia Hall at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Dave and I visited here. Aren't these such elegant decorations? Really it's the gorgeous ivy that makes it so wonderful. Notice the variegated croton plants in the urns on either side.

Just white and orange pumpkins on the porch steps. Can you imagine opening the front door, walking in and smelling the roast turkey and pumpkin pie? We can.

Elegant leaf garland trailing down a porch staircase

Another example of elegance with ease. Just a leaf garland along the stair banister. Does this spark decoration ideas for Thanksgiving?

bird bath repurposed for autumn display

Heap pumpkins, gourds, mums and maybe a cute turkey around your bird bath. This is our fall porch!
