Nature’s earthy autumn palette of dark hues, brown, copper and dusky blues couldn’t be any more fitting for a day dedicated to giving thanks, spending time with friends and family and ultimately, staying grounded. As always, we’re looking to the colors of our surroundings to inform our Thanksgiving decor. So, here we scoped out some gorgeous tablescape inspiration that does just that. These settings beautifully combine the season’s hues with simple concepts and flawless execution. Swoon on!
