Happy Thanksgiving week! I’m sharing my inspirations for Entertaining with HGTV’s Color of the Month today. November’s color choice is marigold. Not one you normally would think of for parties and events, but with these ideas you may rethink that notion. Marigold is perfect for autumn, with its rich yellow-orange tone. Our Sunflower Thanksgiving feature is a perfect example of incorporating this color for fall gatherings. I’ve compiled products and ideas to get you in the mood to celebrate with marigold.

Marigold isn’t difficult to find for home furnishings and servingware. Plates, serving dishes, paper products and even furniture can be used at your next gathering featuring this color.

Food options are easy to find in this rich hue. The Food Network is featuring marigold this month as well. Check out their recipe selections. I came up with a few edible ideas of my own after browsing the Food Network recipe database. Doesn’t this mac & cheese look divine?

What to wear? If you read my posts, you know that I am a fan of the hostess dressing to coordinate with the party. Whether it’s a dress or accessory, here are a few ideas to add a pop of marigold.

    I love your Marigold theme! A combination of of Merry Yellow and Groovy Gold = Marigold. ( Just made that up of course.) Yes, I will use Marigold at home. I think it is an under the radar classic. I'm now inspired. Lilly from houseofdesignlove.blogspot.
