The days are shorter, the weather requires hats, mittens and mufflers, leaves are blowing round and you are beginning to dream of a Thanksgiving gathering that will last in your family’s collective memory for years to come.
Setting a beautiful table is a must!
It is one of the first things people see when they enter your home, and if it’s done right your guests will linger, laugh and know how much they are loved by seeing the care you’ve put into the meal and the table setting.
Fresh flowers add beauty, interest and your personal style to the evening. There are so many ways to fit flowers onto your table and into your budget!
For those of you with a larger dining table, perhaps a wonderfully traditional long and low centerpiece or cornucopia would fit the bill. Warm tones of seasonal colors, yellows, bronzes, orange and burgundy are in abundance at the local flower shop. Adding the warm glow of candle light with taper candles or perhaps a scattering of votive candles in between the place settings always looks amazing.
Not enough room on your table for a long and low centerpiece? Perhaps a glass cube or bubble bowl arrangement will work better for you. This option will rob a minimum of actual table space while still making a festive statement.
No matter which option you choose keep in mind that this time of year is about rich colors, wonderful textures and abundance! Your local florist can suggest an arrangement that will reflect your style and fit your needs.
Not hosting Thanksgiving Dinner this year? Don’t forget to bring a hostess gift with you to show your appreciation for the wonderful dinner that you have been invited to.
Potted phalaenopsis orchids, beautiful blooming cyclamen plants or perhaps paperwhites blooming from a keepsake planter would be just the gift to say thank you and happy wonderful holidays ahead!
