Thanksgiving Colors and Table Decor Ideas

I set this table and I think it is one of my favorite Thanksgiving table decor ideas. I can’t wait to share how you can pick Thanksgiving colors for your table!

Does it seem early to be thinking about your Thanksgiving table? It’s not because today I am going to share a fun way you can pick your Thanksgiving colors for your table. Because once you have your colors, the rest is easy!

A New and Fun Way to Pick Your Thanksgiving Colors

What’s the first thing I think about when it is time to set a table? My color palette of course. Have you ever used a Color Palette Generator? It’s an online tool that you can use to identify colors in one of your photos.

Or any photo for that matter.

Let me show you how a Color Palette Generator works. I zoomed in on this photo and cropped two up-close photos. The top two photos are my inspiration photos. Then I used the Adobe Palette Generator which created the row of colors just below. Aren’t these colors fabulous?

So why use a color palette generator? Sometimes I see a photo and I am so inspired I can’t think. It might be a table but it is likely something totally unrelated. But often there is so much going on in the that I can’t figure out what I actually like about it.

Well, you can use a color palette generator to decipher the colors in a photo. And determine your Thanksgiving colors.

So how does this help you?

Let’s say you like this table arrangement I did earlier this year. And perhaps you were thinking of doing something similar on your Thanksgiving table.

All you need to do is take a screenshot of the photo focusing on the colors you love. Then upload your photo(s) using an online Color Palette Generator and look how amazing this is!

This color palette was made by the free online site Coolors.

You can print out your new color palette and use the color chart as your inspiration for your table. You can shop your home first for tableware, linens, candles, and more. Then take the color chart with you when you are selecting flowers and anything else you may want to find for your table.

Do you see how easy it is to determine the Thanksgiving colors for your table? You can use any photo you want!

There are a lot of color palette generators online. Canva and PicMonkey have one. I use the Adobe Create Color Wheel and Coolors. My preference is Coolors because it is free and really easy to use. What I like most about it is you can click on the colors in your photo and pick the ones you want to feature. I think that is a must-have!

As soon as you have picked your colors, click on Create Collage and this is what you get. Just export it on your computer.

I set this table as an inspiration for Thanksgiving. I used brighter colors than usual and I love it. Seriously, who said I always had to go with brown and orange, right?

So what do you think?

Most of the items on this table I already owned, with a few exceptions. The fresh flowers are all Trader Joe’s flowers and I love them. I just purchased the vintage ironstone bowl (I used it as a vase) online. It was an Instagram sale @shadevintagehome. The Italian gold wine glasses look vintage (but they are not) and they are very inexpensive!

I have a funny story about these plates. I bought two of them about ten years ago and I have looked for additional ones ever since. The smartest thing I did was to registere them on Replacements.com. Last month I got an email that they had found four of them.

It only took nine years but I finally own six of these fabulous plates! All of the items seen in this photo (except for my hard-to-find-plates, hehe) are listed below.

Don’t you think these items make great Thanksgiving tableware? (And just so you know, there are three more fabulous tables that my blogger friends shared below. Be sure to scroll down and take a look!)

You might have seen earlier this week that I made the ceramic planters on the table. I also made a cake plate to match and they are both a similar color to the top color in the color chart. I linked the DIYs.

Sometimes I like to mix things up, so I added my favorite light pink napkins. What do you think?

I love to mix faux flowers with flowers bought at the market. Can you tell which ones were real and which ones are faux in my photos in the post above?

    I absolutely love the color pink. A soft pink is my favorite but any pink will do. I enjoy the varies colors of pink you use depending on the season. One question I have? Where did you get the pink Mason jar that I have seen you use in your decor?

    Thank you for sharing. I am living vicariously through you. Lol
    Have a blessed pink day.

  2. I absolutely love love love that palette of pinks and purples. They look amazing. A nice twist to the fall colour theme. I also love your flowers plates. They brighten up the place setting. I would have so many dish options if only I had room to store them.
