The holiday table is often overrun with a whole lot of beige: Potatoes, stuffing, rolls, gravy, and even the bird itself fall into the tedious tones of off-white, tan, and brown. While all are essential to the meal, a plate can seem lifeless when piled up with nothing else. 

That's why it's important to bring other colors to the table: ruby red from cranberry sauce, green in the form of a salad or a big platter of Brussels sprouts, and orange—lots of orange. Whether it's winter squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, or even oranges themselves, here's how we're bringing the color orange to the table.
