Decorative Fairy Acorn String Lights



Outdoor string lights can add instant ambience to your home. These adorable options are shaped like little acorns and they’d be a perfect addition to a porch or outdoor table from September through Thanksgiving.


Glitzhome Thanksgiving Banner



If you want something a little different, a handcrafted sign like this one is a way to welcome guests with gratitude. Made from wood, iron, and burlap, this front door Thanksgiving sign features an adorable wooden turkey with a cute bow collar and colorful tail.


Jaylnn Non-Slip Floral Outdoor Doormat



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.


Sumac Wreath


There are so many wreath styles to choose from, and after considering the exterior aesthetic of your home, it all comes down to preference. This willow and bamboo eucalyptus wreath is a beautiful option for Thanksgiving because it’s a celebration of all things autumn. Just look at those colors!


Nickel Designs Pumpkin Doormat



A doormat with a simple and clean design like this could blend into any exterior space. This modern pumpkin doormat is versatile, durable, and made with a natural brown coir that complements other neutral tones. Not only is it functional, but it’s also so fun for the season.


Uplyft Design Co Thanksgiving Garden Flag 



If you love punny fun, then this flag is for you! It has a fun, groovy feel to it and is sure to make your guests smile when they pull up to your house.


KyCyn Buffalo Plaid Rug



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.


DearHouse Store Fall Garland



The colors of fall are the best way to greet guests. Drape this artificial leaf garland over your stair rails or doorway for a cheery hello.

Brooks Cross Bar Outdoor Lanterns

Pottery Barn


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

Williams Sonoma


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



Who knew gourds could be so gorgeous? These artificial pumpkins are especially essential for their elevated design. Place them next to the front door, on a bench inside a three-season porch, or atop an outdoor dining table for a beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape.


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.
