Must-Have Thanksgiving Decor

By Belinda Romano

There's no doubt that the most important part of Thanksgiving is the feast (after giving thanks, of course!), and if there is ever a time to sit back and enjoy a day's worth of eating and feasting, it's on Thanksgiving. With all the culinary preparations leading up to Thanksgiving day, it's easy to skip the minor details that can make your gathering of thanks even more festive. Nestled in between the spooky flair of Halloween and the twinkling lights of Christmas, Thanksgiving decor is often times overlooked and forgotten, but with just a few harvest-inspired pieces, you can have your home ready for Thanksgiving day!

Seasonal Scents

Fill your home with the scent and feeling of harvest time by lighting scented candles or setting up reed diffusers in the main rooms of your home. Illume Heirloom Pumpkin Diffuser, $34, available at BeautyBar.com.

Pumpkins & Gourds

If you're to only add a few Thanksgiving decorations throughout your home, you can never go wrong with pumpkins and gourds. And with so many shapes, colors and sizes, you're sure to find the perfect color scheme for your home decor. Our Family Patch Personalized Pumpkins, $26, available at PersonalizationMall.com.


Add some harvest flair to your home's exterior with a beautifully lush wreath adorned with pumpkins, leaves and autumn flowers. Floral Treasure Pumpkin Harvest Wreath, $78, available at Hayneedle.com.


One great way to accentuate your home with Thanksgiving hues is with the help of harvest garland. Drape it across your windows, fireplace mantle, or wrap it around your staircase railing for a warm touch. Autumn Pumpkin Harvest Floral Garland By Collections Etc., $22, available at Amazon.


A classic symbol of Thanksgiving, the cornucopia represents abundance and nourishment, making it an essential part of Thanksgiving decor. The Autumn Harvest Cornucopia, $35, available at Amazon.

Welcome Mat

If you are hosting Thanksgiving in your home, then what better way to greet your family and friends than with a festive, autumn-inspired welcome mat at the front door? Fall Welcome Mat, $20, available at Miles Kimball.


Candlelight has a special way of transforming the mood of any room, and whether you prefer colorful pillars, or simple votives, the warmth and flickering of the candles will make your home feel even more cozy and welcoming on Thanksgiving day. Tupelo Amber Pillar Candles, $7-$15, available at Crate & Barrel.

Decorative Pillows

Want to give your living room an easy makeover? A few fall-inspired pillows and throws will instantly tranform your living space. Decorative Pillows, $225-$275, available at Horchow.
