Gold and White is always elegant in my mind. It is glamorous but you can easily add in a few natural elements or another color to make it more simple and casual. I was thinking of adding a little forest green (think evergreen) for another element. Just look outside your own home for the natural element- pinecones, acorns, evergreen, etc....
Here are some inspiration photos:
I have gathered a few things already to create a beautiful and budget-friendly Thanksgiving Tablescape. I found an awesome gold and white chevron fabric from joann's to either make a table runner or table cloth out of; the candle holders are from crate and barrell, the cake stand is from CWonder, simple gold or forest green chargers underneath a white plate, gold rimmed glassware, a simple linen napkin to add a different texture and I am loving these simple DIY evergreen place cards. A small mangnolis wreath/garland would also add a lovely green textural element to the space.
