Set The Table: Rustic + Metallics

Happy Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you all had a great week!  I'm really looking forward to this weekend as our house hunt continues & we have a couple homes lined up to tour.  Fingers crossed that we walk into our dream home :)

If you follow me on Instagram {andy_adler}, than you may have seen the picture that I posted a couple days ago featuring my Thanksgiving table setting.  I snapped a few higher quality photos that I wanted to share with you.

The theme that I am going for this year is a 'rustic luxe' look.  I wanted to incorporate rustic earthy textures & tones with metallic accents to add a bit of a luxurious look.

I wanted lots + lots of candles!  I LOVE candlelight :)  I decided to use my mercury glass pillar stands with these Birch candles from Pottery Barn.  I shared them a while back and am still in love with them :)

I was thinking about buying some burlap from JoAnn's Fabrics and making a table runner this year but decided to just use a runner that I already had.  

I found these adorable salad plates at West Elm {currently on sale here}.  They come in 4 different phrases and are perfect for Thanksgiving.  I had my eye on them for a while and am really glad that I scooped them up on sale!

I picked up the gold chargers at Home Goods a while back.  Metallic chargers are so versatile and can be dressed up or played down.  They're definitely a staple if you entertain often.  You can find extremely affordable gold chargers just about anywhere.  Some good choices are at Target {here}, Bed Bath & Beyond {here}, and also at Macy's {here}.

Instead of napkin rings, I opted to simply tie twine around my napkins for a little rustic touch.

My assistant {featured in the background} is saying hello! 

The gold flatware that I'm using this year is from West Elm {view here} as is my gold rimmed glasses and gold rimmed dinner plates {here & here}.  I kind of went West Elm crazy this past month :)  But seriously, everything they have right now is so cute & affordable!

For my place cards settings, I took some old wine corks that I had been saving for a while and spray painted them gold.  I used a box cutter to make 1/2 inch slice down the middle of the cork and stuck some brown cardstock paper {purchased from Michaels} in the center, but just cutting up a brown paper bag would look cute also!

The one thing that I think my table is lacking is a little greenery.  I'm thinking about hunting down some olive branches or something similar......thoughts??

Anyways, that's all that I have for now!  Tell me what you have planned for Thanksgiving......

I hope you all have a fabulous & beautiful weekend! xx
