Thanksgiving Table Inspiration + Editable Leaf Place Cards

I will miss cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year since I will be off in Amsterdam, so to fill up on some of that Thanksgiving love, I designed a rustic luxe dinner table setting. West Elm was very gracious at lending me some of their gorgeous dinnerware and linens to set this dream table. If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know how I love mixing styles, bringing in rustic with glam, metallic with raw wood. The setting started with the gold faux bois salad plates. I loved the woodland pattern in the foil finish. I then added the twig flatware and mercury glass candle holders. The mix of the gold and plum against the natural wood and earthy dinner plates created a warm yet intriguing table setting. Of course everything looks better topped with a paper flower so this plum dahlia finished my look. For the leaf name cards I used Gold Leaf metallic paper from I have set up this printable for the names to be editable in the PDF. All you will need is the free script, Herr Von Muellerhoff from this post. Once you have installed that font, just download the template onto your computer and open it in Acrobat were you can customize it with your dinner guest names. Cheers! ~ Lia

  1. Love the Roman shades where did u get them?

  2. I LOVE what appears to be dish towels as the placemats. I am definitely incorporating this into my table this year. LOVE it.

    • They are actually another set of West Elm napkins. I like them being a different width than a regular place mat and handing off the side of the table too.

  3. And the chandelier/lighting? It makes everything even more magical–I’d love to know where it comes from.

  4. This is beautiful! I love that you incorporated plum instead of the typical Fall colors. I’ve been dying for purple lately so this is right up my alley. Is it weird that I thought you said “edible leaf place cards”? I guess I’m hungry!

    • Haha. I read editable that way a lot too. We need a better word for it because they are not even the same. Yes on the plum. I will be sharing my plum infused living room soon. Stay tuned.

  5. I would love to be one of your Five guest!
    This is just so gorgeous!!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. It all looks great!!! I love your table! Did someone make that for you?

  7. Wow! Everything looks so beautiful Lia!

  8. What a gorgeous table you have set! It gives me inspiration to implement elements for our thanksgiving day. Thank you!

  9. Everything looks so beautiful Lia! I really love how you incorporated the fox into the table decor…so clever. Are the linens under the plates runners or napkins? Or neither? ha ha

    • Thanks Lisa! The fox was a last minute addition. A little playfulness. Those are napkins under the plates to add a little more color. They are also from West Elm.

  10. Beautiful table! If mine could look as wonderful as yours on Thanksgiving! :)
