Ask any home décor-enthusiast around and they’ll tell you: Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays for decorating. Combining elements of the fall season with annual Turkey Day traditions, the scheme is cheerful, colorful, and warm — no wonder it’s so beloved! From gorgeous dining table spreads to accents you can incorporate into any room of your home, we’ve rounded up 12 Thanksgiving decorations that you and your guests will gobble up this holiday season. 

How to Decorate for Thanksgiving

Break out the fancy dinnerware. Thanksgiving is all about celebrating with the people you’re thankful to have in your life, so show them just how special they are by dusting off your fanciest dinnerware and cutlery! Tableware is the cornerstone of any good Thanksgiving tablescape, so find a set you absolutely love (from $33.99, Macy’s) — even better if it’s at a great price! 

Look for fun serveware. Now that you’ve got the plates all set up, it’s time to serve the meal. Finding fun ways to do just that has never easier: From gorgeous pumpkin cocottes ($75.99, Macy’s) that will keep your dishes looking good from oven to plate to kitschy serving platters ($53.54, Macy’s) that show off the beauty that is your perfectly-cooked turkey, the options for your creativity to shine through are endless. 

Pick up some fun centerpieces. No Thanksgiving spread would complete without a great centerpiece or two. Whether you choose to go classic with a cornucopia or go a little off-script with a woodland or seasonal theme (from $3.99, Macy’s) incorporating fun elements, such as pumpkins, leaves ($41.99, Pier 1), and candles (from $10, Yankee Candle) centerpieces, are the perfect way to jazz up any table.

Don’t stay confined to one area. While the main event may take place in the dining room, every part of your home deserves a little holiday love! To ready your entire space for Thanksgiving, pick up a fun doormat ($27.79, Macy’s) to welcome guests, invest in an intricate wreath ($59.99, Pier 1) that will wow, or cozy things up with decorative pillows ($64, Macy’s) that will make for the perfect post-meal retreat.
