Be My Dream Guest!

If I could do up a Thanksgiving setting "dream style", here is what it would be! We would definitely have a bit of Hermes orange and a touch of greek key! Settings would be glimmering with bits of gold. There would be plenty of candle light! Sweet baby pumpkin votives strewn throughout a table of ivory linen and gold leaf place cards topped with an antique mirror backdrop.  I would love a bit of vintage china mixed in and the flowers would be abundant and free form with an occasional branch thrown in.  Now that I am inspired I think I need to start acquiring such items so that my next Holiday feast will be "Dreamy"!
