November Blue Time Two

I loved this table from last year and wanted to share it with you again! As usual I will be linking to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks to her for hosting this blog party every week!

The Avett Brothers "November Blue"


I was interested in doing a Thanksgiving table without using the usual Thanksgiving colors and china. I thought blue would make a pretty table especially with orange as a complementary color. I felt very original until one of my favorite Avett Brothers songs "November Blue" started playing. I think I was subliminally influenced by their music! So I decided to name the tablescape after their song.
 Here's the table:

I started with a warm white tablecloth and used copper colored chargers. I then used Spode Blue Italian Dinner and side plates. On top of the dinner plates I used pumpkin salad plates from Walmart (last year's clearance).

I used my Colonial Shell stainless and Pewter goblets finished off with orange napkins with a copper colored leaf napkin ring.

For my centerpiece I used a blue and white china compote topped with a ceramic orange pumpkin.

I added some orange berries and smaller pumpkins too and pumpkin place card holders in both orange and white.

So here is my November Blue tablescape!

Watching on the mantle are two pairs of Pilgrims.

And over to the side is my antique wicker tea cart with a cornucopia tea set and pumpkin mugs.

I hope you enjoyed my November Blue table and that it inspires you to try different colors for the holidays!
