Front Porch Thanksgiving Decoration Ideas

To Welcome Your Family and Guests

Thanksgiving decoration ideas are as abundant as the many blessings that we have in our lives. Dave and I love Thanksgiving. It's simply about giving thanks and enjoying time together.

I have to admit I love all the delicious food and pumpkin pie, too.

As you decorate for Thanksgiving, begin with your front porch. What better way to say "welcome" than with beautiful outdoor Thanksgiving decorations.

Your family and guests will appreciate the splendor of the season.

With cornstalks, mums in bushel baskets, pumpkins lining the steps and vintage items so beautifully displayed, Renee has created such a welcoming porch. It's beautifully decorated for autumn and Thanksgiving.

Combine traditional autumn decorations like the faux painted pumpkins, colorful fall leaves, and a little burlap to create a most pleasing outdoor Thanksgiving arrangement.

Mother Nature seems to do some of her best work in the autumn with all the brilliant shades of color like red, orange, gold, amber and brown.

Simple Thanksgiving Decoration Ideas

  • Hang a wreath on your front door that is adorned with festive holiday ribbon, berries or even colorful flowers.
  • Attach corn stalks to light posts, columns or pillars and arrange pumpkins and gourds around the base. See Shelly's pretty harvest home.
  • Use potted plants such as mums in a variety of colors and sizes to add splashes of color to your porch. Get several different kinds for contrast and place them along the steps or walkway leading up to your front porch.
  • Window boxes are also a great Thanksgiving decorating idea - like the picture shown here.
  • You can plant flowers and then accent them a garland of fall colored leaves or berry covered vines for that harvest feel.
