Do you ever find yourself drawn to unusual takes on traditional decor? Maybe when everyone is focused on red and green, you opt for a stylized modern white and gold vignette? Or perhaps you find a unique way to incorporate warm citrus hues into your Thanksgiving table. When I first saw this teal buffet, with its rustic branch elements and citrus accents, I knew it wouldn’t be for everyone, but it would absolutely be a look for me. As a native Floridian, I am often spoiled by our year-round access to fresh and delicious citrus. There is something to captivating and warming about the vibrant hues of the lightly textured fruit. After seeing this simple but beautiful buffet spread, I thought that Thanksgiving and citrus really do make for quite the duo. They both emanate warmth and happiness, but I think it’s the citrus that really elevates this Thanksgiving decor to a higher level, bringing in a sense of freshness to the table.
Shades of a teal blue and off white help balance out the orange hues, as to protect them from overwhelming the decor, but it’s the textures and shapes that really help to keep this look from becoming overdone. The different shapes and sizes of the fresh fruit table runner softens the design, especially with the foliage and branch accents mixed in. This teal blue and citruss hue styling lends itself to a smaller, more intimate dinner party experience.
Here’s what I had in mind for this citrus themed Thanksgiving decor:
