Fresh Palette: Thanksgiving

If you remember this Valentine's dessert table or this Fall dessert table I designed, then you know I like to use unexpected color palettes for holidays and seasons. This year, I think a fresh red and purple palette is perfect for Thanksgiving. So, here are a few images that are great inspirational starting points.

A small table or bench is a great place to display pre-dinner snacks like cheeses, crackers, grapes, and glasses of cider. That will keep hungry guests satisfied while you put the finishing touches on the main course. It will also eliminate the dreaded, "Is it ready yet? I'm starving."
Pomegranates are in season and are the best shade of deep red. Set one on each guest's plate with a handwritten greeting on a little slip of paper.
Who says you have to have turkey at Thanksgiving? If you're in the mood for a no-mess, stress-free holiday, consider Chinese takeout. Served your favorite dishes on beautiful china, rather than paper boxes, to infuse a more formal feel.

Are you planning a traditional Thanksgiving with turkey and stuffing or do you put a different spin on the holiday?
