This Thanksgiving I used my Emmerson Dining Table and west elm table settings to create a rustic glam setting. I also mixed in my handcrafted touch to set the scene with my paper dahlias, leaf place cards and DIY thankful tree.

You will see the gold faux bois salad plates started the look, adding in the rustic dinner plates, the twig flatware, then adding both the metallic gold napkin with a berry print under the plate for a pop of color. I finished with a bit more glam using mercury glass candle holders down the center and adding the silver fox for a bit of playfulness. The look is complete and is ready for my guests. Thanks west elm!
