Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Stephanie Hoppen

I was shopping at Publix yesterday and they had the most beautiful purple mums. It brought to mind this table setting I posted several years back. I really like the blue and white with purple palette and I think this would be wonderful for setting the Thanksgiving table. 

Many of us may have blue and white china or white china to use.

Purple mums in several small arrangements would be lovely - smaller blue and white Chinese porcelain vases or ginger jars would be great.

Blue and white buffalo check/gingham check napkins. These are 100% cotton and get great reviews and are $16.99 for a dozen.

Cobalt Blue Mosser Hen

Hand Blown Glasses with Cobalt Blue Rim

Estelle Wine Glasses in Amethyst 

White Bamboo Flatware

I collect monkeys, so I have lots of options, and hopefully you have a pair that would work. If not, HomeGoods is always a good bet.



Pillar Candles in Eggplant

I love the notion of blue and white with pops of purple and chinoiserie touches. This would work much better in my home than harvest colors. Hope you are inspired. Have a wonderful weekend.



  1. Didn't Stephanie write a book entitled, "Choosing Blue"?

    1. Yes, but my favorite of hers is Blue And White Living.

  2. I love the white figures on Stephanie's table.

  3. I always enjoy your posts and ideas! it gets me planning.

  4. The Chicago Botanic Gardens used a predominantly purple palette this fall and the colors are absolutely stunning.
