Bring on the crisp air and cornucopias because cozy season, we missed you! Fall is in full swing and there is so much to be thankful for, including a feast of outdoor Thanksgiving decorations to put that gratitude on display. We’re talking beautiful fall decor like vibrant orange wreaths, foliage-inspired doormats, festive pumpkins, and more. Whether you prefer to decorate your front door, backyard, porch, patio, or walkway, most outdoor fall decor is versatile enough to be kept outside from Halloween to Thanksgiving, so you can even leave some decorations up between holidays.
Hosting Thanksgiving this year? First impressions are everything, and there are countless ideas to enhance your curb appeal to impress your neighbors and guests. You can do so much with outdoor decorations—hang a garland, add a planter, stack pumpkins—the possibilities are endless. Trust us, you’ll be grateful you put up the following outdoor Thanksgiving decorations this year.

An outdoor doormat is a must for a welcoming entryway, and a Thanksgiving doormat doesn’t have to be kitschy (but if that’s your thing, you do you!). Woven from eco-friendly coir, this fall foliage-inspired doormat combines beauty and function with properties that naturally trap dirt and absorb moisture.

An outdoor rug is guaranteed to warm up your exterior, and buffalo plaid is undoubtedly the pattern of the season. Perfect for a porch or patio, this multifunctional rug is a much-needed addition to any seating area. Add a table and chairs and you’re ready to bring your guests outdoors for an al fresco Thanksgiving celebration!
Squatty Pumpkin Lantern
Light is a great way to add warmth outdoors, and luminaries bring a particularly beautiful glow to the yard. We love these festive pumpkin luminary lanterns that come in a variety of shapes and colors. Place these along a walkway for trick-or-treaters earlier in the season and move them near the front door for Thanksgiving.

Brooks Cross Bar Outdoor Lanterns
If you prefer a more traditional aesthetic, these steel and glass outdoor lanterns’ classic design adds soft warmth. Pair each size with a pillar candle and light them right before guests arrive. Additionally, you could also place them around a cozy bench in the backyard for stargazing.
GLU3D Prints Pumpkin Planters
Craving a little more pumpkin spice? Fill pumpkin-shaped planters with beautiful fall florals and place them around the porch! These unique pumpkin planters come in a few sizes and are suitable for any style of potted plant. Coupled with a bouquet of chrysanthemums, anemones, and asters, these planters can be both tasteful and festive.
Pumpkin Live Wreath and Garland
For an entryway that makes an impact, drape a fall garland around the frame of the front door. A gorgeous live garland like this one could be paired both with or without a wreath. When choosing your garland, opt for one that has complementary tones to your exterior for a subtle look, or reach for one in opposite hues for a pop of color.
Faux Pumpkin Squash Garland
For a contemporary aesthetic, consider a garland in a neutral or monochromatic color scheme like this one, which features a mix of brown and tan pumpkins and similarly fall-colored leaves. You can drape a garland pretty much anywhere—around the front door, behind a garden, or along a fence in the backyard.
Thanksgiving Decorative Accent
GFT Woodcraft Rustic Wooden Pumpkins
For those who prefer a rustic feel, this trio of distressed wooden pumpkins with natural raffia bows are equally versatile. Because of their texture, they’ll draw the eye in and break up any monotony without disrupting other decor. Place them along the front steps, on a covered porch, or on an outdoor table.
