Blue Themed Thanksgiving 2012 Table Setting
There is no doubt that blue is considered a royal color and a remarkable sign of sophistication. For centuries, it has been used in different formal attires, ball dresses, furniture designs and even dinnerware in England and France. For a Thanksgiving table setting, it is quite odd to use dark colors as they usually give a very classic appearance and solid impact. But in our topic today we are introducing different grades of the color blue including cobalt, royal blue, and sky blue, all gathered with white and silver in a unique tablescape for your Thanksgiving dinner. This blue Thanksgiving tablescape is very elegant and simple.
All that you need is a suitable colored cover in blue and white; you can choose any prints, but make sure they are simple enough to show the dinnerware. You may also choose a pearl or light silver table cover, or simple satin sheets under every plate. After you prepare the dinnerware and decorations you desire, begin with spreading the suitable sheet, then place the satin spread at every guest’s place. After you set the dinnerware in place, start decorating the napkins with a small pearl holder or tie them with satin ribbons. When you get all in the correct place, start fixing the general appearance by placing the centerpiece, and then decorate around it. The last things that you may arrange on the table are the candle holders and the small accessories.
In this arrangement, a big turkey-shaped cobalt-colored soup bowl and turkey printed plates are used. You can let your inspiration work and add little turkey figures in white or transparent glass or blue glass goblets. You may use different colors of candle holders such that a blue candle is placed in a glass, white or silver holder and the white ones are held in blue glassy or silver holders. For such type of Thanksgiving table setting that includes blues, it is recommended to use white or silver colored stuff. They will help keep a simple look as they break the sharpness of blue, yet match with it.
