Color Scheme

Celebrate Thanksgiving with a display of warm and inviting colors. Incorporate a color scheme of red, orange, yellow and brown in your celebration. Include these fall colors in your Thanksgiving dinner table ideas, centerpieces, place settings and place cards. Prepare food (such as cranberry Jello mold) and make mixed drinks (such as Cape Codders) that incorporate harvest colors as well.


Create beautiful fall centerpieces for your Thanksgiving celebration. For simple and easy centerpieces, purchase mums from your local florist. Select colors like red, orange, and yellow and then send the flowers home with guests at the conclusion of your Thanksgiving meal. For a more complex centerpiece idea, place a red, orange, yellow or brown table runner on the table. Add several small vases along the runner. Fill the vases with colorful fall flowers or pinecones. For a warm glow, add votive candles with an apple, cinnamon or pecan scent. Need more inspiration? Check out these easy Thanksgiving centerpiece ideas.

Place Settings

Plan festive place settings for each guest at Thanksgiving. Serve guests on your best china for a formal meal or new Thanksgiving-themed plates for a festive and fun dinner. Use plain plates and add Thanksgiving accents with napkins, napkin holders, and cups.  Go all out and decorate everything with warm fall colors.

No matter what table settings and centerpiece you choose, be sure to carefully wrap the Thanksgiving decorations for use next year as well! Happy Thanksgiving!
