Why wait until Christmas to put up a tree?
I’m not talking about a Christmas tree though.
Some refer to this Christmas-shaped tree that’s decorated with fall-theme ornaments and colors simply as an Autumn tree.
Whatever you call it, decorating a tree for the time between Halloween and Christmas is quite common.
Thanksgiving trees — which are placed inside the home or out on a porch — are enjoyed between the Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays. (Typically, the day after Thanksgiving is when the traditional Christmas tree goes up.)
It only makes sense. There are already Halloween trees (yes, they’re decorated with Halloween-themed ornaments) and Christmas trees (including upside down Christmas trees) — so why not a Thanksgiving tree?
Truthfully, some people even decorate a tree for many different holidays or seasons throughout the year, including Thanksgiving! (Are you one of those, or are you surprised by this fact?)
Thanksgiving trees come in all shapes and sizes:
- They might be smaller trees made just for tabletops (perfectly sized for a tabletop or porch) or full-size models (similar to a traditional Christmas tree).
- Some have true leaf-shaped leaves, while others are similar to Christmas trees with pine needles.
Hopefully, the following Thanksgiving tree photos will provide some inspiration for your own seasonal Autumn tree this year, or maybe next year.

Keep in mind, your Thanksgiving tree doesn’t have to be so typical. It could be whimsical instead! Your Thanksgiving tree can be decorated in such a way that means the most to you.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
