Thanksgiving Front Porch Décor
Thanksgiving's right around the corner, which means it's time to get our homes all decked out for family and friends! I look forward to styling our Thanksgiving front porch décor every year, it's one of my favorite holidays to decorate for and celebrate!
Pumpkins, Mums and Potting Containers
I always pile loads of Cinderella pumpkins on the steps of our front porch. I love the soft colors and interesting textures of this variety, plus they look good all season since they're not bright orange. I usually use 9 to 13 pumpkins on the front porch. I like an abundant look, plus an odd number always looks best.
When picking out your pumpkins, be sure to choose a variety of colors, sizes, and textures. My go-to pumpkin colors are light orange/blush, white, and moss green. These colors look beautiful with all the natural fall leaf colors surrounding our home.
This year I went for white mums, olive bushes underplanted with varieties of lambs ear and kale, and ornamental grasses in the background. I suggest an abundance of plant materials in various textures. This keeps things looking beautiful all season and brings even more texture and depth into your porch décor.
I love mixing up the potting containers a bit, so I used a grouping of cream glazed ceramic planters, patinated terra cotta pots, and loosely woven baskets to give the porch a collected, easy-going vibe. When shopping for your potting containers I would look for neutral colors that you can use season after season.
We have glass french entry doors, and there's something about putting up fall wreaths on them that makes the Thanksgiving porch décor even more welcoming and cozy. I made these fall wreaths last year with stems of artificial leaf branches on grapevine wreaths.
For a lush look, I suggest sticking to one type of branch and using them in mass to cover your grapevine wreath. The outcome is always beautiful and makes a chic, sophisticated statement.
Thanksgiving Table Décor
As you walk through the front doors into the foyer, you're greeted with our entry table overflowing with my take on Thanksgiving table décor.
I use a collection of accessories that create a collected, Thanksgiving table vibe. Fall leaf branches, mini white pumpkins in a vintage onyx bowl, and some of my favorite ceramic pieces adorn our white marble table.
I always suggest using your entry as a place to display objects and décor that's personal to you and your family. It could be family heirlooms, pieces you've collected over the years, or simply something that brings you happiness every time you look at it.
The entry to your home is an opportunity to create the feeling you want people to get as soon as they walk in your front door.
I love that when people visit us this time of year, they're welcomed with a beautiful Thanksgiving vibe the moment they step onto the front porch. Thanksgiving decorations don't have to be trendy or cheesy, they can be chic, timeless, and sophisticated if you follow my few simple suggestions.
It's always my goal to make our home a welcoming reflection of our personal style. Using things we love to create a look that makes us happy and celebrate one of our favorite holidays with our family and friends!
