Purple + Orange: Stunning Thanksgiving Ideas

I am always looking for new table ideas, and my new obsession is the purple and orange color combination.  It’s slightly modern, slightly rustic……for those of you that know me well, it’s my perfect combination!  The rich tones of these purple centerpieces would be beautiful for Thanksgiving.  I love the idea of taking a traditional flower, but arranging it in a modern vessel.  The image shown above is one of my new favorites….traditional mums arranged in an old picture frame.  It’s an idea that you could alter for so many different party themes, and it’s perfect for a dinner table since it is low (easy for people to talk over!).

This dinner table from HGTV is the perfect example of my purple and orange obsession!  I love the use of orange accent plates with their traditional white china.  Orange is a great pop color for Fall, and can be mixed with so many different colors.  Chocolate brown, olive green, teal blue, mustard yellow, and of course plum.  I think orange floral arrangements can take on a very classic Thanksgiving feel – so if you are looking to update your look, focus on berry branches, leaves, and try mixing in fruit.  Mix different shapes and textures, and look for an interesting vessel.
