I took advantage of warm temperatures to set a table for two~ with a little color inspiration from a pair plates I found at HomeGoods.
Blue married with shades of rust and brown seemed like an unlikely Thanksgiving color combination but Mother Nature, seemed to give her stamp of approval with the water reflecting the blue sky, along with the pairing of the colors in the Royal Stafford turkey plates.
I repurposed a pumpkin as a vase for a centerpiece, hollowing it out and filling it with wet floral foam.
The centerpiece will last several days to a week, kept in a cool place out of direct sunlight to slow down the evaporation process, replacing some of the leaves and foliage as they start to wilt.
You can see another version of a pumpkin vase and mini vases in tiger stripe pumpkins here.
There will be 14 of us celebrating Thanksgiving this year at my sister-in-law’s house. My father-in-law will be absent and visited at assisted living, so we will rally around my mother-in-law to keep her from feeling blue.
