Thanksgiving colors take their cue from autumn’s vivid palette.

Each one gives you lots of options for Thanksgiving centerpieces and fall table decor, so we know you’ll find one that you’ll enjoy!

What are Thanksgiving colors?

Classic fall colors take their cue from the changing of the leaves and the bounty of the harvest season. Candy apple red, ripe plums, plentiful pumpkins and gourds–each of these provides a Thanksgiving color palette for you. However, metallics like copper, brass, and gold are beautiful Thanksgiving colors, too, as do shades of wine like burgundy, champagne, and merlot.

Rich Thanksgiving colors for the family table

Plum, sage, lemon, and orange sound scrumptious, and they look just right for Thanksgiving. Our Orange Blossom floral pattern captures these rich, earthy colors. The orange and green color combination here is classic, and the plum and yellow notes add a fresh twist. With its intricate design and colors, it’s a great choice for a Thanksgiving tablecloth.
