slay your thanksgiving table game

i can't believe it's already thanksgiving you guys. i feel like absolutely everything is in holiday mode now, which means the rest of the year completely flies. this holiday is awesome for so many reasons- fam, food, friends, booze, and focusing on being grateful. and even though tgiv is one of those holidays where everyone is gonna have a blast even if you serve the turkey on paper minnie mouse plates from walmart, it's really fun to dream up cool ways to set a festive table for your guests.

one of my life goals is to become the type of person who has their shit together enough to actually set a table like this for my family and friends for thanksgiving. and the table is just the tip of the iceberg, because if i'm hosting thanksgiving that means i'll also have to figure out how to cook a decent turkey. something tells me i've got a few years before i get there, so in the meantime here are some of my fave takes on the thanksgiving tablescape from around the web: 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 

themes i've noticed: plaid, cozy buffalo check and flannel, gold and rose gold cutlery, rustic stuff like pinecones and antlers, pumpkins, succulents, and wood grain details. slap a few of those things on the table, pour some zinfandel and you've got yourself a winning turkey day party. 

what are your favorite ways to celebrate thanksgiving? any cool traditions?
