A Rustic Elegant Thanksgiving

Todays table is set for Thanksgiving or fall if you remove the
turkey napkin holders.  We are seated in the dining room with
the warm wood table as our backdrop for the placesettings.

A white burlap runner lightens the table and grapevine wreaths
give the elegant placesetting a little rustic touch.

Silver and gold are mixed on the table, with a gold beaded plate and 
gold flatware.

I love the textures of all three plates.  The
ceramic plates are a light taupe.

The rustic elegance goes well with the table and its carved edge.

The centerpiece is a collection of wood rounds, velvet and glass
pumpkins, acorns and burlap wrapped containers.

The sideboard behind has a similar collection of shiny and
rustic elements.

You can see the sideboard in this picture.

I love the pop of gold with all of the other neutrals.

The crackled turkey napkin holders could be replaced 
with something else if you wanted this table to be
for fall decor.

Luscious candlelight fills all of the containers.

I love the juxtaposition of the sparkle and the natural.


I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving next week,
and that it is filled with food, family, and traditions,
whether you eat on beautiful dishes, or paper plates, the
people are what matter.

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
