It’s Fall, which means we have been inundated with muted colors like tan, olive green, blush and then some richer colors like wine, marigold, copper and dark orange. All are pretty colors that work perfectly well for Thanksgiving tablescapes, but I was inspired by the changing of the leaves and how colorful it is. The sky is the perfect shade of blue, the trees are full of bright orange, red, yellow and green. They have yet to get darker, which is what inspired me to do a colorful Thanksgiving tablescape this year.
Here is a peek of what I have been seeing:
Go bold or go home with this colorful tablescape:
I love pumpkins so, I think it’s nice to use them into Thanksgiving. You might not be able to find real pumpkins after Halloween. They seemed to have disappeared around my neighborhood, but fake pumpkins are on clearance everywhere! I found this paper mache pumpkin at Target for only $3!
I was originally going to stack them, but it felt too high. So, I just decided to work with one. I took the scissors and poked a whole in the center and then painted a mix of not fully blended together orange. It helped give it a real pumpkin look.
Then in a plastic cup I added water and flowers and popped it into the pumpkin for my centerpiece.
Bright and happy like the pretty changing leaves and the blue hydrangeas match the blue on the plates perfectly.
I had in mind blue floral plates, but I didn’t have any. I looked online, but couldn’t find the perfect thing. Then I went thrifting and found these stunning cobalt blue floral plates. Perfection! I love when that happens.
For napkins I knew I needed something with a punch, which meant it probably didn’t exist. I found this stunning fabric at JoAnn’s. It’s in the quilting area and has the prettiest mix of colors and looks like an abstract watercolor art piece.
A view from the top shot is always a must!
