Fall Front Door: Greet Your Guests in Style

I’m not gonna lie. I was kind of hoping I wouldn’t have to host Thanksgiving this year but apparently everyone loves the way I cook turkey even though I’m not a meat eater (except for fish). So now I’m thinking about welcoming my family in style with a pretty fall front door. I rounded up a few ideas I think you might enjoy, too. (This post contains affiliate links.)

A wreath is a classic, easy way to adorn your door without having to do a lot of work. I like this festive one made from paper. The colors and pattern remind me of Indian corn. I made a similar book page wreath with complete instructions that you can make yourself.

A beautiful mullioned front door needs no wreath, but a bit of color was added with mums, pumpkins, and gourds. And for the record, I’m a firm believer that you can decorate with pumpkins after Halloween is over. After all, pumpkin pie is a mainstay on most Thanksgiving tables.

Stone pillars create perfect perches for groupings of pumpkins. Check to see if you can still buy pumpkins at your local farm market or grocery store. They’re probably on sale!

Hello double front doors framed beneath an elegant portico! The blushing hydrangea bush is ample adornment but I like the little pop of a white mum set on the steps.

Another pair of double doors get a coat of aqua paint, similar to my front door. A couple of grapevine wreaths and deep purple mum welcome guests on a crisp fall day.

I love this simple, dark green, fall front door. My own door currently has a bark and twig wreath that looks a little bare. I might add some Indian corn to it for the Thanksgiving season.

How clever is this branch and twig arrangement? This would cute surrounding my back kitchen door.

But like I said, if simplicity is what you crave, a simple wreath is all that’s needed to create the appeal of a charming fall front door.

  1. My son and daughter took over the Thanksgiving hosting many years ago, alternating at whose home it is held. They both have large homes, much more comfortable than my small house for a family that now includes grown grandchildren with spouses and significant others, and relatives and friends finding themselves alone on Thanksgiving. I was more than happy to pass the torch! I take a couple of everyone’s favorite “Grandma’s recipe” items and truly enjoy being a guest.

  2. Thanksgiving has already been done for me since I live in Canada. Unfortunately I only have my husband and I ever for this event since everyone in my family is always busy and working. So thanksgiving is very low key and I don’t make a fuss about it. Christmas is the big thing here and I host it.

  3. I actually love hosting as long as i am able, i pick up my dressing at Cracker Barrel and my turkey gets smoked by a friend and i each person brings what they want and i fix the rest, it works out very well . Hope you have a great time and show off that pretty house of yours.
