If you want your Thanksgiving table decorating theme to be the right one, then you’re going to opt for fall colors. This is the most popular table theme for a “bountiful” table centerpiece decor.

Fall colors include reds, yellows and oranges; all inspired by Mother Nature during the Autumn season.
