Outdoor Thanksgiving Decorations

Make it easy for turkey day guests to spot your house from a mile away with beautiful and creative outdoor Thanksgiving decorations. Plan Thanksgiving outdoor decorations for the lawn, lamp post, railings, and porch. Align all the details of the various Thanksgiving outside decorations to complement each other.

Consider Thanksgiving outdoor decoration ideas such as:

  • Lawn: Dress up the lawn with some Thanksgiving fun. Place blow-up turkeys on the lawn along with fall scarecrows. Visit a local party store and purchase turkeys made out of wire and lined with lights. Use stakes to stick them in the ground. Turn the lights on at night to make a stellar impression!
  • Lamp posts and railings: Place Thanksgiving décor outside and complement the fall season with twists of red, orange, and yellow leaf garlands around lamp posts and railings. Mix in some tiny strings of lights to make the decorations visible in the evening hours.
  • Porch: Make the porch into a turkey day haven with outdoor Thanksgiving décor. Hang fall wreathes or stalks of corn on the door. Hang Thanksgiving flags off of the porch with pictures of turkeys, brightly colored leaves, or a scarecrow. For the final touch, place pumpkins and gourds on the porch steps that lead down to the walkway.

Deck the outdoors with Thanksgiving yard decorations that impress neighbors and turkey day guests. Check with your local city or town about outdoor Thanksgiving decoration contests in the area, and enter your masterpiece!
