Happy Thanksgiving and my unconventional color palette

This year we are having an evening Thanksgiving dinner so I thought I would use a more dramatic color palette than in years past.  Although it might be considered unconventional, I chose black, white and pear green.

Thanksgiving Table

Pear green is my fixed color in my drapes and chairs so I used a black table tablecloth with white china. I found these great glass balls from West Elm that I hung from my black and white glass pendant lights (you can only see one light in the photo but there are three lights and they are all a bit different).

 I decided on a really simple pot of Kale with green berries and a few potted succulents since the centerpiece always get moved off the table once the food dishes go on. We never seem to have enough room!

 The Rosemary that I stuck into the napkin holders is fresh from our garden.

What do you think? Too unconventional or just fine?

Happy Thanksgiving and I wish you all a day filled with family, love, peace and food!
