As someone who really enjoys being extra and going all out for holidays I am so excited for Thanksgiving. However, I also want to have more modern thanksgiving decor that is perfect for my home. And after talking with a few of you all on my social platforms I found that a lot of other people have been struggling with this too. So much thanksgiving decor looks very dated even things you can buy new at stores. Which is why I did the shopping and searching for you all! Keep reading for the modern thanksgiving decor ideas and finds.
Also, I tried to keep all of these on the affordable side of things but if you want to really keep the budget low then I really recommend checking out thrift stores and also watching after this season is over for discounted decor that you can use next year!
But let’s get into these finds for modern thanksgiving decor now.

Modern Thanksgiving Decor Ideas and Finds
Ways to decorate for Thanksgiving that are modern and trendy:
1: Thanksgiving colored mini pebble string lights
This is such a subtle but still fun and modern thanksgiving decor item. And one you can really have up for the whole Autumn season! String them along your mantle or even around your front porch for a subtle thanksgiving touch to your decor.
2: Faux pampas taupe wreath
Wreaths don’t have to have turkeys on them for Thanksgiving to give that fall and Thanksgiving vibe! This pampas wreath is so cool but still has that right aesthetic for Thanksgiving.
3: Glass gourd decoration
This is such a modern and cool autumn and Thanksgiving decor find! There are also pumpkin versions also available from Nordstrom that are cool but the gourd shape is so unique, totally love it.
4: Flickering flameless wheat pillar candles
Adding thanksgiving related candles to your mantle or tablescape is a great way to add to the aesthetic without overwhelming it. And these ones are so modern and unique!
5: Ribbed taper candle holder
Speaking of candles- these taper candles re so modern and cool. Perfect for a more boho modern Thanksgiving style!
6: Grateful doormat
These have been in style for a bit now but I would still classify them as modern especially if you get a Thanksgiving doormat with a more modern font on it like this one.
7: Autumnal nature side table
This is definitely the most expensive item on this list but it is so cool I just absolutely had to share it! Imagine using this side table for Thanksgiving cocktails- amazing!
8: Wood pumpkins
These are such cool pumpkins! And totally unique with a modern spin. Definitely something that your Thanksgiving guests will not have seen before or at least probably not!
9: Autumn harvest Terracotta bowls
Serving your Thanksgiving side dishes in these cool autumn colored bowls would be amazing. They are super modern but with classic enough elements that you will definitely be able to use them for a long time before they look dated.
10: Plaid indoor/outdoor rug
Not directly a “thanksgiving” decor piece but definitely great for fall and helps to set a modern fall decor aesthetic in your home for Thanksgiving and the season in general. And it was just too cute not to add to this list.
11: Harvest spice speckled candle
Candles are a great way to add simple fall and Thanksgiving touches to it. And this one is extra cool because once the candle is burnt out you can clear it out and use it as a decorative bowl after!
12: Faux eucalyptus rusted color garland
This is a really great and modern idea for your mantle during the fall time! Love that this can be used to add a subtle fall touch or in addition to a more over the top Thanksgiving display. Whatever you want from it.
13: Oak and leaf paper placemats
There are 24 in this set so there is enough for most sized Thanksgivings. And I love that these are modern but still have a Thanksgiving vibe to them without being cheesy!
14: Thanksgiving colors table runner
Love that this is full of gorgeous Thanksgiving colors without having any designs on it that would make it too Thanksgiving themed. So you can totally use it for the whole fall time but it looks perfect with a Thanksgiving tablescape!
15: Chunky knit throw pillow
This color (bronze) is the perfect throw pillow color to add to your couches for Thanksgiving but aren’t obnoxious at all. The cozy fall vibes are high with this throw pillow! There are other coordinating color options that would be great too.
16: Brass tea light centerpiece
Such a gorgeous and modern idea for your Thanksgiving table centerpiece! Much more modern and trendy than traditional options and can be repurposed in other places in your home too.
17: Fall Tartan plaid woven napkin set
These are a really affordable modern fall decor item for your table this year. Such a great idea for Thanksgiving table settings and just so cute and fun!
