11 Thanksgiving Color Combinations to Try This Year

From the fall classics to unexpected and modern pairings.

Autumn decorating often revolves around the classic colors of fall: Reds, oranges, and yellows. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, but what if those colors don't coordinate well with the place settings for your Thanksgiving feast? Or what if you just want to shake things up this year and go with a different tablescape or floral centerpiece? You don't have to use "traditional" Thanksgiving colors to create a beautiful table setting. Try these creative combinations that will still make you grateful for the day:

1Pink and Gray

Food, Dish, Table, Cuisine, Brunch, Ingredient, Textile, Linens, Dishware, Tableware,

Pink doesn't necessarily spring to mind when you think of Thanksgiving. But when paired with gray and white, then accented with gold, it's seriously elegant.

2Pale Green and Plaid

This color combination leans a little casual, a little fancy. The plaid napkins pick up the pale green and neutral colors of the gourds for an understated but lovely display. You can use any plaid, picking up one or more of the colors in your other tableware pieces.

3Orange and White

Orange, Yellow, Green, Flower, Table, Bouquet, Plant, Room, Cut flowers, Brunch,

Pair the typical Thanksgiving color (in a more vibrant shade) with white for a clean and colorful table. Then, accent with fresh greens. They'll pop even more against the bright palette.

4Gold and White

Simple but effective, this combination of all white dishes with gold flatware and gold chargers makes a beautiful, low-key setting.

5White and Purple

Centrepiece, Table, Flower, Tablecloth, Flower Arranging, Cut flowers, Floristry, Floral design, Plant, Furniture,

All white is clean and classic, but it also can be boring. Add in pops of deep purple, and your table instantly becomes bright, not bland.

6Burgundy and Hunter Green

The deep burgundy hues of autumn pears, eggplants, grapes and beets play beautifully off the dark green artichokes and other greenery. Brass candlesticks set off the look, while neutral plates bring it all together.

7Coral and Hot Pink

Meal, Brunch, Food, Dish, Table, Finger food, Event, Rehearsal dinner, Cuisine, À la carte food,

For a happy Thanksgiving spread that's energetic but still seasonally relevant, mix orange with pink. It'll feel even more rustic on a reclaimed wood table.

Table, Green, Napkin, Tablecloth, Furniture, Yellow, Room, Textile, Linens, Interior design,

Mix varying shades of gold and green together for a natural tablescape. The green is grounding, but gold feels celebratory.

We're obsessed with the mix of textures on this white and yellow table. The burlap runner and twig utensil holders add a natural feel, while yellow chargers create warmth.
