Thanksgiving colors don’t have to be limited to oranges and browns consider black and white for some refreshing creative suggestions instead. These images can give you some ideas on how to use these pure neutrals for some “wow” that your guests will truly appreciate. Paint pumpkins white and decorate with black “lace” patterns black dotted or striped placemats on a white tablecloth are eye-catching and sophisticated, specifically when paired with such items as spray-painted black leaf garlands, fat black candleholders with white candles in glass (or shiny white pumpkins!), or dishes with an sophisticated black floral or nature design etched on them. Black-and-white runners can liven up even a beige or brown tablecloth if you have chairs of pure black or white, use them for further pizzazz.
Black-and-white checked ribbons are cute on a pumpkin or centerpiece of flowers, and gold accents (such as a gold-painted pumpkin, gold-edged china, or gold flatware) on a black tablecloth with white dishes can dress up even a casual table. Use a black-and-white gingham cloth with white embossed dishes (maybe with turkey or other seasonal designs), then add black cloth napkins in white or gold rings. For a brighter table, paint pumpkins with white enamel and then loop shining gold ribbon or gold-leaf garlands by way of them stack a gold-embossed pumpkin on a white candleholder, or group a bunch of them for a spectacular centerpiece that blends fall and winter. Mix and match some of these suggestions for your own special creation — and have a pleased black and white holiday!
