A Delicious Table

One of my small joys in life is a well set, pretty table. I get that from my Mama. Whenever I am planning a special meal (or sometimes not) I get out all the good stuff and set the table early (like the night before).

Tonight I perused the internet looking for what I would set my dining room table with for my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving! Who doesn't love a day that is centered around family and food?

Now, I don't ever plan on actually getting to set the table for Thanksgiving, since it is always at my parents and my mother does such an amazing job or setting gorgeous tables and making delicious food. So this is my imaginary dream table. 

1st Row (click on the items to be re-directed to those sites):
1. Pottery Barn Flatware - I have an obsession with labeled things. These are simple yet elegant.
2. Crate and Barrel Folia Napkin RingsEven tables need jewelry.
3. Pottery Barn Thanksgiving Bird Salad Plates - Prettiest bird plates I've ever seen. They would add extra pop to my plain white plates I already have.

2nd Row:
1. William and Sonoma Wood Candholders - These would add that earthy, harvest feel to the table. Bonus: They are great all year.
2. Martha Stewart Chocolate Bar Place Card Idea - Chocolate. Need we say more?
3. Pottery Barn Salt and Pepper Shakers - They go perfectly with the flatware.

3rd Row:
1. Pottery Barn Gilt Charger - Just because I <3 chargers.
2. Pottery Barn Harvest Suzani Embroidered Napkins and Tablecloth - These have great color and texture. I would also layer it with a runner. I like layers on my table just as much as my clothes.
3. William and Sonoma Turkey Gravy Boat - If you only use a gravy boat once a year it might as well be a festive turkey!

Clearly after looking at this list I should just got live in a Pottery Barn store.

I also love this darker version - which is very similar to what I pieced together in many ways.
