I rely heavily on easy Thanksgiving decor ideas to decorate for our holiday feast. Preparing Thanksgiving dinner for our family and friends is usually a multi-day process. So, when it comes to decorating, I like to keep it simple.

Since I’m not naturally crafty or particularly creative, I rely on my blogging friends for inspiration. Here are some of their best easy Thanksgiving decor ideas.

Thanksgiving Table Decorations

Since the Thanksgiving dinner table is going to be the main attraction, let’s start there.

Organized Island has tips for putting together this Thanksgiving tablescape with items from the dollar store:


If you want a more traditional table, in lieu of the turkey napkin holders, you might prefer these napkin rings made from paper towel rolls and rope (from DIY Inspired).


These printable Thanksgiving napkin rings from Moms and Crafters are another easy option. Even better, these don’t require any gluing!


I absolutely adore these Fall place card holders from Making of a Mom. They’re so perfect for a Thanksgiving table and very simple to make.


Of course, these Thanksgiving place cards from Typically Simple are just as cute. Maybe I’ll alternate for each seat.

Food will be taking up most of your center table space, but you’ll probably still want to include a centerpiece. Here’s an easy and inexpensive Fall centerpiece idea from Mission to Save.

If you’re willing to put in just a little effort, this harvest corn mason jar centerpiece from Thrifty Jinxy is really cute.


Thanksgiving Home Decor

You won’t spend your entire Thanksgiving Day at the table so you’ll want to add some decorative accents throughout your home too.

For something more colorful, this Thanksgiving garland from The Best Ideas for Kids is ridiculously easy to make.

If you prefer the chalkboard look, head over to A Simple Pantry to find several Thanksgiving chalkboard printables.

For the other tables in your home, here’s a cute idea from Organized 31 for making Thanksgiving blocks from repurposed game blocks.
