A Blue, Blue, Blue Thanksgiving Tablescape!


Blue and White Dining Room Thanksgiving Tablescape

I’ve always been a traditional sorta gal.  I love classic colors associated with the seasons.  Red and pink for Valentine’s Day, orange and brown for fall…green and red for Christmas.

But sometimes it’s fun to break away from tradition and create a fresh new color palette.  Like my blue and white Thanksgiving tablescape.

I had so much fun finding ways for my Thanksgiving table to still say “autumn” while using the blue and white pieces I already have.

Pieces curated from thrift stores and garage sales….

Adding the little details, like gilded acorns to the base of white chippy lanterns, mixes traditional elements into the tablescape.

Two pairs of  pretty burnished gold quails stand guard over the meal, while a white runner over created from vintage crochet pieces adds a soft touch to a piece of burlap.

I love the bright cheerfulness of my blue and white dining room and the fact that I can still decorate seasonally with a non-traditional color palette! As your getting ready to host for your family and friends this Thanksgiving, think of ways you can add seasonal decor to items you use everyday for a fun new take on Thanksgiving table!

    So pretty! I have always been partial to traditional color for holidays, but slowly seeing beautiful settings like this are helping me break the mold! It’s definitely the little elements and touches that make this so perfect! Thanks for the inspiration today!

    your dining room is gorgeous!! playing the orange with it makes it so fallish too. i am so glad blue is staging a big comeback in decor as i have always loved it. decades ago my dining room was similar to the blues you used here and i used silver and white with it for a couple of Christmanses….aw memories.

    I love the blue! It’s my favorite color to decorate with, and it’s the perfect compliment to the colors of fall. I couldn’t help noticing your blue and white curtains too. So pretty! Please tell me that they’re ready made panels and that they’re still available? (They’re probably custom.) Thanks for sharing your lovely tablescape.

      Hi Kim! Hope you see this. They are actually from Ikea!! Very inexpensive. :) I think you can order them online if you don’t have an Ikea by you.

    Oh my. It is just beautiful. I love that it is a bit untraditional with the blue but still traditional too with the acorns and fall leaves. Those lanterns are divine. And I adore those mini chalkboard tags on the silverware. Thanks so much for joining in our tour, we are so happy to have you share your table with us. xxoo

    Heather, white and blue with pops of orange is really my very favorite Thanksgiving table colors! Your table is a beautiful example of how warm and welcoming and “fall” those colors can really be! I adore your dining room!

    What a clever idea to take your stunning silverware and tie it with twine and those precious little chalkboards! That rustic luxe combo makes me swoon!
    You are a traditional girl, but you have sure put a wonderful modern twist on it! Very you!
    Have a blessed Thanksgiving, my sweet friend!

    Stunning table!! Never would of thought of using blue, but it works beautifully. I’m in love with the lanterns, could you tell me where you got them? thanks, Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. says

    That’s it, I’m coming over for dinner! 😉 The blue is so refreshing, like a breath of fresh air among the heaviness of November. You’re outdone yourself, it’s LOVELY!

    I’ve always been a fan of blue and white. I love the way you were able to blend that palette with Fall. So pretty. Also, I particularly loved your phrase “rustic refinement” when talking about the silverware. Wouldn’t that be a great name for a blog? Also, it was great seeing you at RB the other day.

    Your blue Thanksgiving table is lovely. For some reason, blue china has always been the prettiest to me. My wedding china was even in blue. The lantern is gorgeous, and the little gold birds are sweet. You have really made a nice table for Thanksgiving. I am already getting into the Christmas spirit, as it is my favorite holiday of all.

    Have a blessed weekend.

    Your dining room is stunning, Heather, and the blue and white and orange woks so well with your bold patterns and your furniture. Your Thanksgiving guests will be very lucky, and I know you’ll be cooking something delicious for them.
