From showing off your decor to trying your hand at DIY crafts, the holidays are a home decor enthusiast’s dream. However, a Thanksgiving celebration can be particularly tricky to decorate for, whether you’re in search of traditional ideas, budget-friendly DIYs, Amazon decor finds or more modern looks that are a bit more unexpected.

Whether you’re hosting a large group of family and friends or you’re keeping things on the small side this year, here are some of the best Thanksgiving decorations to create a festive environment for Turkey Day. From pumpkin-lined front porches and beautiful centerpieces to chic wreaths and turkey place cards, these Thanksgiving decorations are sure to help you pull off your best holiday yet. There are even stylish Thanksgiving tablecloths and runners to complete your setup. Just don’t forget to pick a good turkey recipe, delicious sides and, of course, some pie. Your family and friends will thank you.

Pumpkin Place Cards

Paper place cards might do the trick but these petite pumpkins level things up. Not only are pumpkins affordable but they also make a great gift for guests to bring home with them at the end of the night.

DIY Table Runner

Have kids at your Thanksgiving celebration? Keep them busy while the turkey cooks by rolling out butcher paper and letting them go crazy with leaf stencils and gold paint. The outcome: A stunning table runner for your feast.

Thanksgiving Punch

Spruce up your drink station by pouring punch or juice into a glass pumpkin. Place sliced oranges, apples or cinnamon sticks inside the bowl to make things feel even more festive.

Gratitude Garland

Ask your loved ones to write down their deepest gratitude on pre-cut cardstock leaves. Then, hang them all on a rope garland for instant decor.

Festive Front Porch

Set the tone for the holiday before your guests even step foot inside your house. Autumnal garland, a lush wreath and a basket of crunchy leaves create a warm and welcoming vibe on this front porch.

Apple Cider Bar

Set out a pitcher of cider, pre-rimmed glasses, twinkle lights and some pumpkins for a fool-proof drink station that’s sure to wow guests.

Floral Painted Pumpkins

Grab three pumpkins in different sizes, so you can stack them from largest to smallest. Then have fun painting on yellow leafy branches. Don’t forget to add some faux berries.

Flower and Acorn Centerpiece

Take a cue from this arrangement of flowers and decorative acorns to create a rustic vibe in your dining room.

Pumpkin Centerpiece

No jack-o’-lanterns here: Take advantage of the season’s bounty by hollowing out painted pumpkins and filling them with autumnal blooms.
