All I need now is the Turkey, the rest of the fixings and five of you to come sit at my table! 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 paper-papers.com. 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. 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
