Thanksgiving is such a beautiful holiday.  I especially love the festive colors of the holiday like yellows, oranges and greens.  Every year I have a “friends-giving” at my home here in London and make my specialty Mac and Cheese (it’s a Barefoot Contessa recipe, but I take full credit for it at the table… duh).  My favorite part of the holiday though is actually not the cooking, but decorating the table.  So this year I wanted to share with you my Thanksgiving table decor.  I decided to go for a deep dark grey tablecloth and to use rich jewel tones as color pops against the dark backdrop.  I also went for copper accent pieces as I’m especially loving this metal at the moment.  Dark purples mixed with oranges took center stage and I just fell in love with the end product!  Take a look and wishing all of my fellow Americans a very Happy Thanksgiving today!


Thansgiving Table 2Thanksgiving Table NapkinsColor Palette:  Dark Grey, Purples, Oranges, Greens and Berry.  I wanted to concentrate on these rich velvety colors against the deep dark grey backdrop.  I started off by laying greens directly on the table as the centerpiece and worked with hues of orange and purple florals to accent it.  I also decided to use cloth napkins in shades of purple and a simple stem of dark berry florals on each plate to tie the name card to. Thanksgiving Table 1Thanksgiving PostUnexpected Accents:  I decided to accent with copper this year instead of gold.  I have been loving the combination of copper and dark grey and here it also went just perfectly with the plums and oranges of the festive table. I also used food to enhance the tablescape.  Little additions like bowls of plums, berries, radishes, mini carrots and clementines brought additional stunning colors that worked still with my palette. Table DecorSeasonal Accents: I always love to include little pieces that embrace Autumn.  This year I tucked in a few feathers, gourds and leaves to give the table that extra little something. Thanksgiving Flat 15Thanksgiving TableThanksgiving HolidayNatural Elements:  This year I used all natural stones as the accent bowls and trays.  So each bowl (like the one with the decorative berries) were natural stones all in neutral colors.  I also included some beautiful grey and white marble cheeseboards as a decorative edition. Table Detail 3
