Modern and Clean Thanksgiving Decor in Maroon and Turquoise Blue

As we find ourselves in that final stretch before Christmas madness takes over, it’s important to remember that all of the stress we put on ourselves during the holiday season is not as significant as who is around us. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season and forget that all these get togethers and parties are there for us to connect with our friends and family, not to show off or one-up someone’s pumpkin pie. With that mindset at the forefront of your thoughts, allow me to present to you the concept and idea for this week’s Thanksgiving decor idea board.

For this week’s theme, I choose to create a calming but welcoming effect with this modern and clean styling Thanksgiving decor. Maroon and turquoise blue are the heroes of this color palette, with crisp whites and silvery greys accent in the background, merging with the inevitable orange hues of natural autumn decor. Creating such a warm and inviting environment for you and your guests to share can help foster a relaxed and more intimate visit, with the focus on each others company, and not overwhelming decor. Why not try it in these shades?

Here’s what I had in mind for a modern and clean Thanksgiving decor in maroon and turquoise blue:

Citrus Themed Thanksgiving Decor

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.

Modern Blue Pumpkin Thanksgiving Decor Ideas – in Light Blue and Navy Blue

With Halloween just behind us, and Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what your Thanksgiving dinner is going to look like. If you are looking to mix up the traditional rustic orange color palette and go for something more modern, you’ll love the Thanksgiving party decor idea board I have put together for this week. Shades of light blue, mixed with a dark navy blue and hints of taupe and ivory combine to create this modern Thanksgiving dinner styling. To me, having lots of pumpkins in various sizes and colors help make this a cohesive look. I’d love to see the buffet have a few pops of blue or a gentle metallic accent, perhaps in the plates. To add just a touch of freshness, the pumpkin succulent planters have been incorporated. A fun dessert display is always in good taste, and this hanging dessert buffet stays within the color palette, but brings that modern touch with its clean lines. Beyond Thanksgiving, this is a great concept for transitioning from the end of summer into the fall season.

Glamorous Gothic Halloween Wedding in Black and Red

Get ready, we are doing a complete 180-degree this week!

Last week I shared a rustic, goth inspired wedding, perfect for a county area with lots of natural landscape to harness, with candles everywhere. This week I present to you a completely different wedding look, created for the glamorous gothic couple that love all things luxurious. Glossy black finishes with the deepest red roses you have ever seen will line every surface your eyes may lay. Black crystals with delicate black lace accentuate everything from the chairs, to the chandeliers in black above. This has the makings of an unforgettable Halloween wedding. All that’s missing is the perfect chamber music faintly heard in the background. Here’s what I had in mind:

Outdoor Jack-o-lantern Halloween Party Ideas

Happy Fall!

To kick off the first week of October, which as far as I’m concerned kicks off all things pumpkin and autumn like, I thought I’d share an outdoor, jack-o-lantern themed Halloween party idea board. This themed party would be fantastic for a neighborhood get together, especially in a backyard or lawn setting. Trying to keep the scariness level friendly for all ages, I kept the Halloween inspiration focused on the pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns… no blood and gore. Don’t want to give little ones unnecessary spooks!

An Unexpected Autumn Wedding with Burnt Orange Orchids

Happy almost-Thanksgiving!

Around this time last year I shared a bunch of fall inspired dinner party ideas, (check them out here) but THIS year I seem to be covering all sorts of new ground. Last week a tropical orchid heavy fall wedding. This week…..an unexpected autumn wedding idea board awaits you.

I loved the use of orange orchids last week, so I thought why not do more with them? This week I’ve looked for more burnt orange orchids, to really hone in on this seasonal wedding idea I have. This is more of a traditional fall wedding, but still keeps that lovely orchid beauty that is so light but impactful.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Do you prefer seeing the orchids in last week’s wedding idea board that is more tropical, or this week’s more traditional autumn wedding?

Apple Themed Fall Dinner Party

I had so much fun creating last week’s pumpkin inspired dinner party, I created another fabulous dinner party idea board for this week – but themed around apples! I was channeling a cool fall night, some close friends over….and thought about what would I want to have. I knew good food was a must (and these recipes have rave reviews!) with simple but pretty apple elements. Here’s what I had in mind:
