I think turkey and dressing just tastes better when surrounded by a beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape — especially one overflowing with color! With November just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving!
And speaking of color, don’t you just love Trader Joes’s flowers? All those beautiful flowers at such great prices!! It’s so hard to settle on just one bunch!
Last week’s trip to Trader Joe’s, on a day when they were fully stocked with beautiful vibrant colors, resulted in this idea for a Thanksgiving tablescape overflowing with color —which seems to be a theme for me this fall!
And of course, the Trader Joe’s flowers are the star of the show!

I started with a selection of flowers and greenery, including bright pink roses, gold chrysanthemums, white zinnias, purple statice, green hydrangeas, and eucalyptus. Special thanks to the sweet Trader Joe’s clerk who fetched a flower bucket for all my flowers!
I used a small oval bowl and soaked oasis foam for securing the flowers in the arrangements. I started adding the eucalyptus around the base and then anchored the arrangement with the large hydrangea bloom. Next, I grouped bunches of the different yellow and gold mums around the bowl, making sure the arrangement looked balanced on all sides — important since this is a table centerpiece. I added the white zinnias and finished with the pink and purple blooms.
I added this jute runner to the dining room table as a neutral base for all of the color.
The hot pink and fushsia just pops against the jute! I added faux pumpkins and gourds in shades of peach and pale orange, small white pumpkins, and red pears.
I love the pinks and purples combined with traditional fall oranges and yellows.
The blue and white fruit bowls add even more color — and you know we all love our blue and white!
The amber stemware and brown chargers remind you that this IS a fall tablescape even with all that hot pink!
I created little DIY cachepot planters. I used small galvanized metal pots, and painted them in a blue and white striped pattern with gold trim and added the wheat.
The blue pillar candles add height.
It’s a colorful table just perfect for all the colorful conversations that will happen here between family and friends.
On the kitchen table, this basket (a great TJMaxx find this fall) overflows with colorful gourds, pumpkins, and fruit — a mix of real and faux. Mixing real and faux is a great way to extend your decorating dollars. You just have to remember to toss the real!!
Blue and white plaid pumpkins and plaid leaves are DIY touches that add color and fun.
