This year I went with a fuschia color scheme with orange and blue accents for our Thanksgiving table. As always the color scheme was inspired by the flower centerpiece. Since I usually wait until the day before Thanksgiving to get the flowers I never really get to plan out what the table will look like. On the day of Thanksgiving the first thing I do is put together the flower arrangement and then go from there. Since I don't have to do the cooking (thank you Chef M!!!!!) I am afforded the luxury of time to focus on the fun stuff. I even had some extra time to decorate the kiddie table.
The napkins are a Liberty print I picked up in London...just kidding,they are actually from World Market. They have pretty tiny pink, orange and blue flowers on them. And because of the blue on the napkins I decided to introduce the blue glasses. I only wish I had some fab gold flatware to set out as well.
For the kiddie table I started with a kraft paper base and then layered on gourds, turkeys, decorative corn and fall-colored jewels. The table was fun enough to keep little O occupied for a while. The turkey clip art is from Darcy Miller. If you tape the turkeys to skewers then you can almost add them to anything!
