Thanksgiving can be a bland looking holiday. If you’re not careful, turkey brown and mash potato beige can overwhelm your table. Decrease the drabness by accompanying these dinnertime staples with a wealth of deliciously colorful side dishes: the shiny magenta of cranberry sauce, the cloudy amber of spiced apple cider, and the dark emerald of healthy winter greens will not only add a welcoming warmth to the table, but will inspire a rich palate that can be reflected throughout your gathering space. Transform your Turkey Day with the regal, seasonal colors that are the Pinspiration for our board Harvest Jewels.
Gem Tones and Organic Elements: The neons of summer and pastels of spring have darkened into fully saturated shades of their former sunny selfs. Ruby maple leafs and amber vases are rich accents to an amethyst-inspired table setting, and natural elements like artichoke stalks can be transformed into an organic table centerpieces.
Cast Iron: This heavy material elevates the appearance of our gem-toned palate. Curvy candlesticks and hand-shaped metal leaves add strength to the setting, while the more intricately crafted hanging lanterns and grated cages steadily shield their delicate contents.
Flickering Shimmer: The faint twinkling of bottled fairy lights sets an intimate atmosphere, one where guests can feel free to carry on conversations with those they may only see once a year. A hanging trellis dotted with candles is the ultimate shimmering home accessory for this family festivity. But if you’re lacking the wall space, the glow of jewel-toned votives or sparkle from glittering party favors are also sure to spark camaraderie.
