Maybe you’ve never thought of Thanksgiving colors as including blue. But think again: the shade of a winter sky, autumn shadows, or even a touch of frost can lend some special flair to your Thanksgiving home décor this year. Blue antique lanterns are terrific fall décor with white candles to light your guests’ path — maybe to a feast to which you’ve invited them with blue-and-beige sepia-effect cards. Autumn bouquets are visually softer in a blue vase; use blue napkins and natural wood napkin rings for a rustic look. You can even spray paint a pumpkin blue, add a touch of glitter — then listen for the “oohs” and “aahs”! Blue candles against a silvery-blue tablecloth, with white china and gleaming crystal, say “elegant” any time of year.

Got autumn leaves? Paint a few of them blue, scatter them with brown and orange leaves in a random garland, and back it all with a pale blue runner down the center of your table. Or, set a table in traditional browns and beige china — with deep blue glassware, candleholders, or service plates. Napkins and tablecloths come in a wide range of blues, from peacock to royal to electric — pick one, pop a few orange pumpkins around as ornaments, and feel the energy level rise. And speaking of peacocks…if you’re decorating with feathers, spice up those brown collections with a peacock or blue jay feather, and watch the smiles. Finally, use china and flowers that are blue classics, such as Blue Willow or hydrangea. Yes, you can enjoy a case of the “blues” at the holidays — so have fun with it!
