Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas

Our Favorite Thanksgiving Decorations

Is it really a holiday without decor? As a kid, I remember coming home from school and our house magically covered in Thanksgiving decorations. To me, that was the start of the MOST exciting time of the year! I may not have realized it at the time, but the Thanksgiving home decor meant happiness. This season, use some of these Thanksgiving decorating ideas to really help ring in the spirit of the holiday!

In LOVE with these Thanksgiving decorations! That front porch is the cutest thing I've ever seen... love the rug idea! #ThanksgivingDecorations #FallDecor #ThanksgivingPorch

Because Thanksgiving decor often extends from the inside of our homes to at least the front porch outside, we decided to separate our Thanksgiving decorations into two different categories: Indoor decor and Outdoor decor. From table centerpieces to wreaths and everything in between, if you’re needing Thanksgiving decorating ideas, we’ve got you covered!

Thanksgiving Table Decor

Indoor Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas

It all starts with the interior!! Set the tone for Thanksgiving with these fabulous indoor decorating ideas. Thanksgiving table decor happens to be my most favorite way to get my home ready for the holiday. I just love all the colors, textures, and dimensions that you can play around with! And the best part about these ideas, all of them are DIY! With enough creativity (and a few trips to Hobby Lobby), you can have a Pinterest-perfect home of your own!

I am a busy wife and Mother to three beautiful children! I was raised in California but I now call Texas home, and I love being with my family more than anything in the world! I have LOTS of different interests and love learning new things. Photography and being a wife/mommy are what make me the happiest, but water skiing on a hot summer day isn't a bad second choice!
