Easy Décor Ideas for a Cozy Thanksgiving Porch


The new homes in Savage MN from Key Land Homes feature beautiful exteriors with welcoming porches. To add to your porch’s cozy appeal, consider adding in a few season decorations. If you love to decorate for every season and holiday, there are plenty of Thanksgiving-inspired decorations to use. If you prefer to decorate just for the season, there are more neutral additions that will see your porch through to Christmas. From big displays to simple designs, here are some tips to create a cozy porch that is perfect for the holidays.

First and foremost, if you have furniture on your front porch, the easiest way to add some fall color and style is to add pillows and cushions in warm, earthy colors. Rich reds, oranges, and yellows instantly add a feeling of warmth and seasonal style.

Pumpkins and gourds are another quick and easy addition, grouped around posts, placed on each step, or as a centerpiece on a table. For a more creative, yet still easy option, place a wooden crate on its end to create a table or pedestal effect. Then drape an autumn leaf garland across the crate and down the side, and place a lantern and perhaps a few small gourds on the top for an instant fall-themed vignette.

Lanterns are a great decorative piece to see you through Thanksgiving and even through Christmas. They look great empty, but candles are an obvious addition. Red candles will see you through Thanksgiving and Christmas, or you can choose white and blue candles for winter or Hannukah. An arrangement of one large lantern with two progressively smaller lanterns looks inviting next to the front door or at the entrance to the porch. You can also fill the lanterns with fall leaves, small gourds, or even a string of lights. Their versatility is what makes them so ideal.

For a grander Thanksgiving theme, bundles of dried corn stalks tied together with some beautiful fall-colored ribbon make the perfect frame for your front door or placed in front of the posts along the front of your porch. Add in a friendly scarecrow for a whimsical touch, or add some basket containers of geraniums and other flowering fall plants for a more understated approach.

Vintage wheelbarrows, carts, and harvesting tools add nostalgic charm, and many of them can do double duty as containers for arrangements of flowers, Indian corn, gourds, hay bales, or any artfully arranged combination.

Adding Thanksgiving style to the new homes in Savage MN is easy and fun. Pick and choose among the elements that appeal to you most and don’t be afraid to get creative and play around with arrangements. Whether it’s hay bales as side tables, a grand autumn wreath for the front door, or simply some plaid pillows, these decorative touches will add a warmth to your home, even on the chilliest of days.
