Turning Tables

Changing color schemes and incorporating seasonal materials gives a basic tablescape dramatically different looks tailored to three holidays.

A Thanksgiving table

Thanksgiving Table

Silver and orange make a unique Thanksgiving color scheme. A mercury glass pumpkin tops the tall trumpet vase, but you could easily spray-paint a real pumpkin with metallic paint. Branches of silk leaves mingle with fresh berries for rich color, and a scattering of white miniature pumpkins provides a fun note at dining level.

Christmas Table

A few well-chosen containers and candlesticks create the framework for three very different holiday schemes that will carry you from Thanksgiving to the New Year.

A New Years table

New Year's

An explosion of color and shine sets a festive table for a New Year’s Eve dinner. Bunched sequined sprays arch from the trumpet vase, with purple candles echoing the spray’s color. Jewel-toned stemware continues the theme.
