Blue and Orange Thanksgiving Table & Documentary Released Tomorrow!


Would you combine the bold colors of orange and blue for your Thanksgiving table?


Blue and Orange are opposites on the color wheel,
which means they are complementary to one another.


So I say why not?  

Do you think George and Martha were opposites?

After all, don't opposites attract?

I think so

Trevor would love a blue and orange Thanksgiving table...no doubt about that.

 Would you, or would you not set your Thanksgiving table with such vivid colors?


Tomorrow, November 12th, is the big day!  Etsy will release the documentary short featuring me/my shop and I'll be featured on their blog.   I'll post links as soon as I have them!


UPDATE:  IT'S HERE!!!!

  9. I love those blue turkey plates. I'll look forward to the documentary. I like blue and orange together. But when I was a kid, my cousin I had matching swimsuits and they were dark purple and orange and we hated them! We could not believe her Mom had bought them for us.

  22. Congratulations, little Miss! I look forward to getting that link! Meanwhile, heck YES I could set a Thanksgiving table in bold colors!!! I love to churn against the grain, so that would be right up my alley! :-) You did a beautiful job with this, and I just love the napkins!!!

  24. I've actually been decorating for Thanksgiving with blue and orange for 3 years now. Blue and white Spode Winter's Eve dishes and cobalt blue stemware on a rusty orange tablecloth and fall colored plaid napkins. The centerpiece is a blue and white soup tureen loaded with mini pumpkins and colorful gourds and sits on a burlap tablerunner. I get just as excited putting it out each year as I did the first time!

    1. Oh, that sounds soooo pretty! I did another blue/orange tablescape a couple of years ago. I really, really like the color combination!

  25. I would set my table with those vivid colors in a second, if I had all those beautiful goodies! I love,love,love how you worked in the fall colors with the blue! It really opened my eyes. My wedding china is blue and white and I don't use it enough because I always think, it doesn't look like Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Can't wait get out of the box with my china!! Thanks!

  26. Hi Nancy,
    Your table looks great, I like to add a punch of that color to my Fall decor every year. I would definitely set a table like that if I had the right stuff to do it.
    Very unique and different, and hope that blue and orange is for the gators!! lol
    My son is a gator as he went to U of Florida. Just saw your son's t shirt and looks
    like it is from something state college! oh well..............lol
    Hope you have a nice blue and orange Thanksgiving!
    Blessings, Nellie

  27. What an exquisite table! You have featured my very favorite color of dishes. I have never seen blueware with a turkey motif. They're simply wonderful. I have a collection and love displaying it with orange pumpkin accents and autumn leaves.
    Thank you for sharing, my new friend,

    So happy to have found your lovely blog.

    Jenna

  29. They go together beautifully! I have blue dishes. It would be nice to do something like this! If I could do a Thanksgiving buffet sort of dinner I would but unfortunately I have to fit most of the food on the table too but oh my this is just lovely lovely lovely :)

  30. Orange and blue....are you a Gator fan? Seriously, I think you can mix anything you want to especially when the pieces are as lovely as the ones on your table. In addition, there is a very spirited feel which is just right for a family gathering.

    1. Thank you. It's a funny story how I found them. If you saw the tablescape I did recently with the brown plates like these I told about how I bought the plates from a lady who bought them from a dealer that I sold them to about 5 or 6 years ago! I bought these blue ones from her also.
      Thank you for the well wishes and Happy Thanksgiving to you also!

  34. The ETSY film is wonderful, Nancy! You are so knowledgeable and personable on camera and have such a lovely way of speaking and passing on information in such a warm manner. (And while your tables always look lovely, I am NOT an orange fan and don't have anything orange in my home! But I do love that blue on your table.)
