I've made several of these family chargers over the last year or two. I made this one for a 40th Anniversary gift for friends of ours. I tend to favor the silver but they are equally as pretty on a gold charger. Really, I think any color could be beautiful if it goes with your decor. I used the Copperplate font because for the name because it's bold and all capital letters - the first letter is a regular capital and the rest are small capitals. The script is Lucida Handwriting. It cuts nicely and I like that it is easy to read. I usually give the charger with a plate stand so it can be displayed.
If you look back to last year, I've also made chargers for Cub Scout events like the Pinewood Derby ( http://www.southernsandy.blogspot.com/2012/03/pinewood-derby-time.html). You wouldn't think little boys would like something like that but they were thrilled.
