The Thanksgiving Table

The Harvest Season is definitely underway and as Thanksgiving approaches, more emphasis is placed on the importance of color and texture. When we think of autumn, we often think of more conventional decor that feature reds, oranges and yellows. While this works for many occasions, I personally prefer variations on the tried and true traditional fall colors. 

By taking our cue from color experts, perhaps it is time to kick it up a notch - add a little textural Proteaceae, and feature designs that favor the more trendy 'Jewel Tone' shades of ruby, sapphire, amethyst, emerald, and yellow topaz. These lovely hues not only have a warm and welcoming appeal, they also exude a special 'farm-to-table' and 'field-to-vase' charm, and after all isn't that what harvest season is all about? Here are some of the ways I imagine my Thanksgiving table garnished!
