Thursday Tabletop: Gold Rush

Gold flatware is eternally chic and kicks any sweet little dinner table's a** (see White House protocol for proof). This is one of those trends that I probably would have gagged over 5 years ago, but has since become modern and of the moment. I've been trolling ebay for a set to pick up for my own use.

First spotted in a holiday spread featuring Aerin Lauder (who makes anything cool to me)
via 100 Layer Cake, mixing it with with my other fav, stripes. Throw in some kind of bold color and it would be my trifecta.

Sleek and modern, these are just the style I'm lusting after. All I've run into thus far are very ornate vintage sets, but I'm not giving up my search just yet.
